Printing Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



I have a form with an auto-resizing textbox. There are three views on it (Default, Read-only and Print View). I put text until the textbox limit before it expands. I click "Print View". In the Print View, everything works fine, but when I click "Print Preview", some characters do not appear in the textbox (and when I print, these characters do not appear too).


These images will help to understand.

"An error occurred during printing. (0x8000405)" eror - reporting services issue

We are getting this error: "An error occurred during printing. (0x8000405)" from time to time - 70% of the time when we are trying to use a printer button within report manager. It happens if we preview report or just print it. We noticed if we restart RS services, the error will stop for a little bit and then starts again. We don't print that much and it will come back after just a few reports printed. Let me know if you had a similar issue. thanks!

Font/letter spacing issue when printing from SSRS 2008 report page


We are developing reports in SSRS 2008.  When printing from the SSRS report page, we are seeing that that some text is "clumping" together or spaced oddly. I have tried a variety of printers so it's not printer-specific. If you export from the SSRS page to PDF or to Word and then print, everything prints as expected.

Nothing is as good as real text/names/data, but to reproduce, simply create several text boxes with...

I used several common fonts...
Arial, 10 pt (SSRS 2008 default)
Times New Roman, 12 pt (Office 2003 default)
Calibri, 11 pt (Office 2007 default)
Verdana, 11 pt
Tahoma, 11 pt

In the example above, I used normal weight, nothing fancy... If you use bold and underline, which is common for a page/column header or footer, this issue is even more apparent.

It feels similar to the following issue: https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/482312/ssrs-report-font-rendering-issue

A workaround would obviously be to export to PDF and then print, but these are steps that our end users shouldn't have to (and won't want to) put up with to produce reports/invoices/etc. that ultimately go

Issue with landscape printing using PrintVisual


I was playing around with Petzold's PrintWithMargins program from chapter 17 in his book "Applications = Code + Markup". The code is available at http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/companion/0-7356-1957-3/. The problem can be boiled down to having a window with a print button. The Click handler is as follows:

void PrintOnClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs args)
  PrintDialog dialog = new PrintDialog();

  if (dialog.ShowDialog().GetValueOrDefault())
    DrawingVisual visual = new DrawingVisual();
    DrawingContext context = visual.RenderOpen();

    Pen pen = new Pen(Brushes.Black, 1);

    Rect borderRect = new Rect(96, 96, 
      dialog.PrintableAreaWidth - 2 * 96, 
      dialog.PrintableAreaHeight - 2 * 96);

    context.DrawRectangle(null, pen, borderRect);

    dialog.PrintVisual(visual, Title);

So, it is just drawing a rectangle one inch from the edge of the printable area. I'm printing using Microsoft XPS Document

Bluetooth Printing Guide using Windows Mobile Pocket Pc

FieldSoftware Products printing products use the Bluetooth "Serial Port Profile" (SPP). Unfortunately, there is no standard method to find your Bluetooth printer and begin printing... each device contains a Bluetooth stack/driver that determines the steps. There are two main stacks currently available... one from Microsoft and one from WIDCOMM/Broadcom. Below are step-by-step instructions for printing with the Microsoft and WIDCOMM stacks. Note that these may change for different versions of the Bluetooth stacks or for different manufacturers. Consult the documentation for your device for specific details on your device.

Identifying your device''s Bluetooth stack: There is no sure steps to identify a Bluetooth stack on a device. Below are steps for identifying current WIDCOMM and Microsoft stacks at the time this page is published. Note that these may not identify earlier or later versions of the same BT stacks.

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"


MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

Multiple Paramatized Threading issue


I need the funcitonality to have two methods run concurrently of each other and the parent thread (aka the method that makes these two calls) to halt until BOTH are done. After the threads are done, I need to perform logic on the returns of the method, so it is essential for both of them to be complete before the parent thread continues. I have searched the internet and tried varous attacks, and I always come up with the same result, this being the parent thread continues operation after the first thread finishes, leaving the second thread running.  Can someone show me a quick example of how I can do this. I have tried checking states of the threads, halting the threads, but I always end up with the same thing. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Printing crystal report from webservice



I am trying to print crystal repot directly from a C# application, which is calling webservice. I am able to display report in crystalreportviewer by passing the webservice call to datasource. However, is there anyway, I can print directly without showing the report?

Alternatively, I was trying return ReportDocument object from webservice, which would solve my problem, but I was unable to return the ReportDocument because of serialization issue. Is it even possible? Thank you


If Statement Issue



This is very strange to me. I have spent 2hrs looking into this inside out , but dont seem to get it

I have an if statement that inserts data into the database. But i check to make sure the name is not entered twice. Now when the name is already in the db, then it should insert else put out a message saying its already in the db

My code works fine except that  when its not in the db, its inserts but still puts out the message that says "Name is already in use" Not sure if am not seeing something. But thought i did bring it to the forum. Here is my code...Pretty simple

Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click

        Dim objConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim objCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim strSQLQuery1 As String

        ' o/w build our SQL Query and execute it.
        If String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtAdd.Text) Or Leadbank.SelectedValue = "000" Then
