To obtain a label's text when clicking it in Print Preview, do the following:

  1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 or 2017 and create a new application under any of the supported platforms, or open an existing one.
  2. Add a new blank report to the application.
  3. Drop two XRLabel controls from the DX.18.2: Report Controls Toolbox tab onto the Detail band.

      Run the application and click a label to view the result.

    • Document Preview for WPF
