It's a bad idea to try to control a printer directly... What could make it really required?

It's a really bad idea to try to control a printer directly, especially with CrystallReports. You should think in terms of a document, and always try to print the whole document. If a user wants to print just part of the document, that user can choose to do it at the level of the print dialog, by selecting a range of pages. But they will be pages, not graphic elements of the document.

Don't try to make things more complex, convoluted or entangled than they can be:
Keep it that way:[^].
Don't create accidental complexity:[^].
Separate concerns:[^].

5ed, this time for KISS principle that really works but a lot of people don't follow it. I would mention that utilizing the advices of both 3 linked pages takes some time as they require a big change in mindset. I remember when I started programming I was willing to overcomplicate things but that time my focus was rather on challange than design.

Thank you so much. Well, the change in mindset could be considerable, but no change would go nowhere, wouldn't it? :-)

I solved this Problem, wecan't print dircetly in rollpaper with Crystal Reports for dynamic length(ie Dynamic Page Size), Because in Crystal report we have a standard page size(A4,Letter,Envelope etc ..)

For this Case Please Go through this Article: This Article describes how print a raw data.

Write and allign all your data in a Textfile and Print.
