Where are the printersettings saved?

Post by fleo » Fri Aug 06, 2004 12:08 pm

Because i don't want the user to manipulate the filename or savingpath on the one hand, i diabled it in the printerconfig. that works fine.
on the other hand, i need to change the filename on each printing by my selfdeveloped applikation (developed in centura) from where i start the printjob and add the username and a unique key to the filename.
where are the printersetting like filename and savepath saved (i could find it neither in registry nor in an ini-file)? can i modify them in any way?
is there another way, to do this? with the macros i am not able to add the username....
i didn't want to use the sdk, because users also want to print from office-products...!

thanks in advance!

Hi,

without the SDK you cannot control the file naming other than via the Printer preferences.

What I suggest you do is set a default (constant) file name in a specific folder and then via your app colletc this file and move/rename.

Hello livcyxingfoe,

Your last post is an exact copy of a line further up the conversation. We do treat spam very seriously, so please do reply here why you pasted that particular line, or I am afraid that I will have to remove the post.

Best,
Stefan
