SSRS Bug: Another window goes to the front of the screen.

Hi,

I have a WinForms project using reporting services to preview reports. I am using Microsoft.ReportViewer 2012 v11.0.3366.16. I have also tried using the 2015 v12 with same result. I also have Microsoft.Reporting.Winforms NuGet package.

I am having an issue where another window goes in front of my application after closing the print dialog. I need the window order to stay as it is.
Here is a short screen clip reproducing the issue: https://puu.sh/HrCUl/3f67779e80.mp4

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Click on a window not from your project (e.g. calculator)

  2. Click on your project windows to bring it in front of the calculator.

  3. Open print dialog.

  4. Close print dialog (you can cancel or print)

  5. The calculator goes in front of your project.

Unfortunately, work-arounds such as using TopMost property cannot be used in this situation. Sometimes, the user may want some windows to be in front; using TopMost is undesired in this case.

This may seem like a trivial issue, but our user is using our program as a daily operation and prints out a lot of reports. This issue creates a burden on their workflow.

Could anyone confirm this issue? If so, is this a Microsoft bug? Or is there anyway to fully fix this issue without any work-arounds?

Thank you!

Hi @Joyzhao-MSFT

Thank you for reaching out. No, it has not been resolved yet. I have posted the issue in the link you sent.

If there is nothing I could do to fix this issue programmatically, then I just want to at least confirm if anyone else encountered/reproduced this issue and if this is a bug on Microsoft's end.
