Printing and Reporting

  • Chris Anderson


Prior to Silverlight 4, much was made of the fact that Silverlight didn’t have any native printing abilities, and this excuse was often used to back the common belief that Silverlight was not ready for business applications, because printing/reporting is a vital requirement in most business applications. Alternative solutions to work around this omission were implemented that could provide reporting and printing support in Silverlight applications in the meantime, but finally, Silverlight 4 introduced the long-awaited printing functionality developers wanted. Silverlight 5 has gone on to improve this functionality greatly. That said, some of the alternative solutions created before Silverlight implemented printing are still often very viable options for implementing reporting.
