Printing any page in the RTC

Today an interesting feature of the Role Tailored Client came to my attention. Did you know that you can print a page in the RTC, without using report? Just open a page, for example the Chart of Accounts, then go to the Action menu, and look in the bottom for the Print command:

Then, in the window that opens you can select a printer. It can be for example an XPS writer or PDF writer, to generate a XPS or PDF file. Then open the XPS or PDF document:

We get a document with a table layout, with a title and page number / total pages header and this out of the box, for free, without having to develop a report. Nice, isn't it? There are even colors in the report, that's more than is possible in the Classical Client J

Here's an example of an Item card page:

We get a table for every tab in the page. Ok, the layout is not that super as it is with a RDLC report, but still, I think it's not bad…

Let's try it for a Document, for example a Posted Sales Invoice:


Wow, I can see the header tabs and lines and the rest, and this as a PDF, and I did not had to program anything. How cool is that?


No matter if I learned a lot here, the knowledge about the window, I think these later on in life for me will be very helpful
