AR 11 PDF Export Issues


  • enperkins 5 months, 1 week ago

    Hello, I’m evaluating AR 11 for a project. We’ve built a couple page reports and managed to hook them into MVC5 to export them to PDF with C#. There are a couple output errors however.

    For one thing, any text entered in the first textbox is displayed far left aligned and reversed (as in flipped). This happens regaredless of whether or not you delete the textbox and recreate it.

    Secondly, we are outputting the date and time the report was created in the footer. This does not appear when exported to PDF.

    All of these things work perfectly in the report preview, but fail when actually generated via C# calls.

    Any help is appreciated.

    It turns out the bug seems to be specific to Chrome’s PDF Viewer. When viewed in Adobe Reader or Acrobat Pro it displays correctly.

    I’ll attempt to open a bug with the appropriate developers.

    Since the exported pdf renders correctly in Adobe Reader, seems it could be an issue with the Chrome Pdf plugin. I tried replicating it at my end, but it displayed correctly even in Chrome. I have attached a simple application which exports the reports to pdf and displays it in the browser. You’ll have to change the database path in the report before running it.

    Our project is on MVC5 with EF 6. The .NET framework version is 4.5.2. The Chrome PDF viewer bug is occurring on Windows 10 Pro with Chrome version 56.0.2924.87.

    I’ve submitted a report through the Chrome “Report an Issue” feature.
