I know how to run the report from Form as it illustrate on this site:
http://www.lv2000.com/articles/runreport.htm
but the question here how could i to generate the report directly to the printer without showing it on the screen???

I search on the net and I find that I should change this line :-
SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(report_id,REPORT_DESTYPE, cache);

to this
SET_REPORT_OBJECT_PROPERTY(report_id,REPORT_DESTYPE, printer);

but it is not working with me Sad

is there any suggest ?!

Search this forum for 'print direct'. Look at the code that has been used or contact the Original Poster for advice.

use the add_parameter as:

--add_parameter(PL_ID, 'DESTYPE', TEXT_PARAMETER, 'PRINTER');

where pl_id is the name of your parameter list
