Chapter 20. Reporting > Implementing Reports

Implementing Reports

There are two approaches to implementing reports in the .NET Framework. You can use a report engine, or you can roll your own. We'll discuss both, briefly, in this section.

.NET Framework Printing Support

The .NET Framework supports a number of components that support printing. Fundamental to implementing a report from scratch is the PrintDocument component, which both represents the document to print and provides the ability to print it. The properties of the PrintDocument class control how and where the document is printed. The event handlers, particularly the handler for the PrintPage event, specify the actual contents.
