Could you provide an example of how we can go about printing a document with the .NET Core version of Docentric. I'm not seeing a .Print on the document object anymore.

Please advise.

Hi Dave,

In the .NET Framework version of Docentric Toolkit we are using System.Drawing to print documents. In .NET Core/Standard this becomes a problem since there is no cross-platform printing functionality we could use. This is the main reason we removed physical printing from our .NET Standard-built assembly.

Now, since .NET Core 3.0 System.Drawing was re-introduced, but we haven't brought the Print API back into Docentric Toolkit Engine yet. It seems that System.Drawing.Common even targets .NET Standard 2.0 which means that we could re-introduce the Print API in our .NET Standard 2.0 assembly.

Is your application running on Windows only?

Regards, Jure

Yes, we are on Windows, but would have some ambitions to run cross platform if that is possible.

Dave,

We are going to introduce this functionality in version 7.0, which is scheduled for Q1 2022. Would this work for you?

Regards, Jure
