Code Examples

Zoom Print Preview

acCmdFitToWindow, acCmdZoom10, acCmdZoom25, acCmdZoom50, acCmdZoom75, acCmdZoom100, acCmdZoom150, acCmdZoom200, acCmdZoom500, acCmdZoom1000

This example opens a report called "CounterInformation" in print preview, maximizes the preview window and then zooms to fit the page to the window. Remove the remarked out lines for zooming to other views. To use the code, create a button on the form and paste the code into the On Click procedure.
