    CurrentView.Export(path, ExportFormat.Pdf) with internet explorer II problem

     Hi,

    Since we have upgraded users computers from Internet explorer 9 to Internet Explorer 11, all forms generated programmatically in PDF have no checkbox checked and the form is truncated to the right. Do you have any idea how to solve this problem? Thank's

    Wow – I had no idea it was the IE version that was causing so much of a mess w/ PDF exports – thanks for that info! I usually just replace checkboxes w/ some wingding font expression boxes & add conditional formatting in the print view, and export the print view. So - two expression boxes, one has a checked checkbox, one is blank, and conditional formatting indicating which to display - let me know if you need a sample?

     HI Hilary,

    Thank you very much for your quick reply. To understand well, I would like to have a sample of what you did to get around it.

    Have a good day.

    Sure. Save the attached file locally, right click & select design so you can preview. You'll see there is a regular & a print view - in the print view, I'm using expression boxes for the checkboxes. Hope this helps.

     To solve this problem we added this key registration with regedit :

     Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_IVIEWOBJECTDRAW_DMLT9_WITH_GDI]
    "infopath.exe"=dword:00000000
