The following Visual C example shows how to print a document to Win2PDF using Crystal Reports.

 

void CPrinting::PrintPDF(LPTSTR sPrintType, int iPrintMethod)

{

 _TCHAR sFileName[PE_FILE_PATH_LEN] = "";

 short hJob = 0;

 PEPrintOptions  PrintOptions;

 

 PEOpenEngine();

 hJob = PEOpenPrintJob("d:\\pics32\\pics32\\live\\quote.rpt");

 

 PrintOptions.StructSize     = PE_SIZEOF_PRINT_OPTIONS;

 PrintOptions.startPageN     = 1;

 PrintOptions.stopPageN      = -1;

 PrintOptions.nReportCopies  = 1;

 PrintOptions.collation      = PE_COLLATED;

 

 _tcscpy(sFileName, "D:\\temp\\test.pdf");  // Here is the PDF file name

 _tcscpy(PrintOptions.outputFileName, sFileName);

 

 PESetPrintOptions(hJob, &PrintOptions);

 PEOutputToPrinter(hJob, 1);

 PEStartPrintJob(hJob, TRUE);

 PECloseEngine();

}

 

The same example using Visual Basic follows.

 

Public Function printAPIReport(RptName As String, rptPath As String, outPath As String) As Boolean

   Dim PrintOptions As PEPrintOptions

   Dim hjob As Integer

 

   PEOpenEngine()

   hjob = PEOpenPrintJob(rptPath & RptName)

 

   PrintOptions.StructSize = PE_SIZEOF_PRINT_OPTIONS

   PrintOptions.StartPageN = 1

   PrintOptions.stopPageN = -1

   PrintOptions.nReportCopies = 1

   PrintOptions.collation = PE_COLLATED

   PrintOptions.outputFileName = "c:\\Temp\\TEST.PDF" & Chr(0)

     

   PESetPrintOptions(hjob, PrintOptions)

 

   PEOutputToPrinter(hjob, 1)

 

   PEStartPrintJob(hjob, True)

 

   PECloseEngine

End Function
