Get list of printers in Dynamics AX 2012 for SSRS reports [Using X++]


Below code snippet will help to get the list of available printers in AX 2012.

static void SR_AvailablePrinters_SSRS(Args _args)


    Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Reporting.Shared.PrinterHelper printerHelper;

    System.Collections.ArrayList names;

    System.Collections.IEnumerator enumerator;

    str name;

    // BP Deviation documented

    printerHelper = new Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Reporting.Shared.PrinterHelper();

    names = printerHelper.get_PrinterNames();

    if (names != null)


        enumerator = names.GetEnumerator();

        while (enumerator.MoveNext())


            name = enumerator.get_Current();





However, the code which we have learnt to get the list of printers in AX 5.0 will still give the same results in AX 2012.

Just wanted to show another way of getting the printers information in AX 2012 for SSRS printer destinations.

static void SR_2009AXPrinters(Args _args)


    PrintJobSettings pjs;

    SysPrintOptions options = new SysPrintOptions();

    int i;

    str printerName;



    pjs = new PrintJobSettings();


    for (i = 1 ; i <= pjs.getNumberOfPrinters() ; i++)


        printerName = pjs.getPrinter(i);





Happy Dax6ng,
