command line based printing

Post by totti_14480 » Mon Jul 06, 2009 8:32 am

I have a question about command line based printing without showing the printer selection/option dialog.
Is it possible to specify not only the printer (e.g. using printer=printer_name) but also a specific paper source on the selected printer?
What I want to do is to print the first page of the document on special paper (letterhead) and the rest on normal paper.
Thanks in advance
Torsten

Hi,

If you are physically printing the PDF to paper and therefore wish to specify such output options - this would be a function of our PDF-XChange Viewer SDK - not the PDF-XChange Drivers API - the forum for which you have posted in - (which as you will appreciate is a virtual printer and therefore there is no such functionality available - or required as it is purley a device intended for creating PDF's - not for physically printing them)

Therefore - could you please clarify what you are trying to do - and if you are using the Viewer SDk - best to place your message here - so the appropriate project team member with the required knowledge can answer:

Thanks for your answer. I understand, that this isn't the right forum for my question and will repost it in PDF-XChange Viewer SDK forum.
