Owning Palette: Report Generation VIs
Requires: Base Development System
Prints a report to a designated printer or to the default printer on the computer.
If you use this VI to print an HTML report, the computer printing the report must have Internet Explorer installed.
|Note If you use this VI to print a Microsoft Word report and you assign a printer to the printer name input other than the default system printer, Microsoft Word resets the default system printer to the printer you assigned to the printer name input.|
|report in is a reference to the report whose appearance, data, and printing you want to control. Use the Create Report VI to generate this LabVIEW class object.|
|printer name is the name of the printer to which you want to print the report. If you wire a printer name, that printer must be configured for use with the computer from which you want to print the report. If you do not wire a printer name, the VI uses the default printer for the computer. The computer from which you want to print must have a default printer. |
If you print an HTML report, the VI ignores this input and uses the default printer for Internet Explorer.
|number of copies specifies how many copies of the report you want to print. If you do not specify a number, LabVIEW prints one copy.|
|error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.|
|report out is a reference to the report whose appearance, data, and printing you want to control. You can wire this output to other Report Generation VIs.|
|error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.|
