Print An Array WebBrowser Each Time To A Different Printer Without Changing The Default Printer
Feb 24, 2009
I want to print an array WebBrowser each time to a different printer without changing the default Printer (not to use the SetDefaultPrinter function) I tried to work with the PrintDocument object(he have the Print function and also i can choose a printer name) but I cant attach the
For my current application development I need direct printing technique,For the purpose I refer Microsoft Support page Titled"How to send raw data to a printer using VB.Net "The code snippnet specified is perfect for my application.Refers link [URL]But I need something more like Setting the Printer font to Condensed.By default my printer use the font 10cpi ,by using this font size I limited to print only 80char on A4 sheet,but I have more than 80 char on line so I prefer Condensed font size.
I have a combo box that contains installed printers on my system, a combo box that has the text file I want to print, and a print button I have created. I am trying to find an understandable way to select the file I want to print, then select the printer I want it to print from, and be able to click the print button.
i am using Visual Basic.net 2008 and I need a way to print the web brower to the default printer. Now I have worked with printing set pixel ranges but big problems happen when a printer dialog box appears over the space of the webbrowser and gets printed! Could someone give me the general approach, sudo code?
My objective: Set the printer to use without changing the default in Word under the control of vb.net express 08. Word version is 2000
I have it working, butï¿½ Through a lot of trying, I discovered that the WordBasic line would work. Further exploration revealed the ï¿½with dialogs(13)ï¿½ will work. In a Word macro it would be Dialogs(wdFilePrintSetup) or Dialogs(97)
This is where it gets interesting. While Word.WdWordDialog.wdDialogFilePrintSetup equals to 97 it doesnï¿½t activate the correct dialog. After considerable trying, I found that index 13 does yield the correct dialog box.
I have a WebBrowser control in a VB.NET WinForms app. I am able to set the default printer from code and print without prompting the user. However, there is also a print button that shows the PrintDialog. If this action is done first the page will print.Then if I try to programmatically print later (again setting the default printer to some other printer) the it will print to the last printer selected in the PrintDialog box even though I am resetting the default and see the default printer being changed in Windows.It works fine unless ShowPrintDialog has a printer chosen first. Once that occurs it seems to always use that printer no matter what I do.
For Each strPrinter In PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters If strPrinter.Contains("My Printer") Then wScript.SetDefaultPrinter(strPrinter)
I have a label printer (Argox 1000-x) and i want to print some datas on it. And this printer is connected to my computer via the COM1 port. I can open/write COM1. And when i send some data to printer through COM1, Label Printer's Ready Signal Led will be ON/OFF. But it does not print anything or any label..
I'd like to be able to specify two different printers for two different jobs. I'm using the following class to handle printing these, but regardless of what I do, the default printer is always the one that's printed to.[code]If I inspect my PrinterSettings attribute immediately before the call to DrawString, the PrinterName attribute is still correctly set to the printer I specify, but it's still the default printer that kicks out the job.
I need to print the contents of 3 textboxs to default printer. what examples I have found dont seem to work. I was trying the documentprint1 component as i thought it would be easy but cant figure out how to tell it what to print the second part is to print a variable (string) to the printer as well.no need for user to select just straight to default printer with its default settings
The above line prints the data contents of the ROData array in position three. I would like to be able to assign a specific position accross the line to have the printer print the data at without left padding the array data.
get a list of printer's (name,port,model) from a computer over the network. I know how to list my own, but it's from querying the Win32_printer object on my machine, I need to be able to do something similar on a remote machine.
1. Detect if my printer is busy, because my code tells the printer to print more pages that it can cope with, so I need to delay the command for 'Print the next page' until the printer has finished printing the previous one.
2. Shift the output to my printer so that it gets printed in it's entirety on the paper, instead of seemingly being anchored to some nebulous point on the A4 page. It starts printing at X = 29mm from the left edge, and Y is 28mm from the top, and stops at X = 22mm from the right edge and Y stops at 22mm from the bottom edge, leaving (aprox) 50mm of X and 50mm of Y unprinted.
3. Get useful information on Bounds, which I'm fairly certain is what I need to control where my printing should start and finish.
I've hunted through this forum, MSDN, 'Help' (a misnomer if ever there was one) the VB Library and one or two other forums, which either baffle me with reams of code or suggest code to try which either just don't work or which doesn't declare all the variables and usually don't suggest what type of variable I need, it's all very frustrating
I have a vb.net app that uses PrintPreviewDialog to print a document. Now I want the user to be able to print to any printer on the network. So, I created a listbox of available printers which works fine. Now, I need to either change the windows default printer to the one selected, or make the PrintPreviewDialog use that printer name.
I know this says not for VB6, however there does not seem to be a forum for VB6. I have VB6 and Access. I want to print to a printer.There is a Printer class with many properties such as line draw, page, orientation, EndDoc etc. It does not have a print option. All documentation I have been able to find is like this
Dim printer1 as printer set printer1 = Priinters(2)
printer1.print "This is a test line." ' This does not work, error message "Runtime error '438'" "Object doesn't support this property or method." also I get the same error message for printer1.EndDoc even though it is listed.
I am using the PDF control from Adobe to view and print pdf documents and works well. I am setting the default printer prior to printing and then call Print. I need to change this where I do not change the default printer due to a conflict with another program. But I cannot see where I can set the printer only for printing from this control. I do not want to use a dialog because it does have a PrintWithDialog option. Is there any other way to do this without the dialog?
Does someone has already printed to a printronix printer (serie t5000r) using .NET (visual basic or C#) ? We already have the file (txt) with the code to generate the label until I know the code it's PGL. What've done was to use file.copy() to send the file to the LPT1 port (we use this method with Zebra printers and it works fine) but the printer print plain text instead of the label with it's format (barcode, titles, etc).
I am trying to get a loop to print to my printer. I have only used this in building a database and writing the code into a table on screeen. This is the WHILE loop code I am trying. Am I close to having it send to a printer correctly?

I am an old Quick Badic Programmer - I was pretty good. VB 2010, and the .NET framework, are NOT improvements! Moving on, all articles I read about printing are focused on VB 6, and little or nothing about VB 2010 or .NET I don't care about the power pack, since it isn't any better than .NET - so how about a ground-up tutorial on how to print to the printer for someone who is being driven crazy by Microsoft's total F-UP of BASIC.
I have a program needs to print directly to a Zebra TLP 2844-Z barcode printer.
I tried the codes in [url]... but an error occurred when i run it, as follows:
A call to PInvoke function 'test!test.RawPrinterHelper::OpenPrinter' has unbalanced the stack. This is likely because the managed PInvoke signature does not match the unmanaged target signature. Check that the calling convention and parameters of the PInvoke signature match the target unmanaged signature.
May I ask if any one has any other idea of printing directly to printer in VB2005?
I have to drive files using different settings from the printer driver. Can I change the preferences & settings of the driver from a VB application? Right now I am using a VBScript, using key presses, to drive the files. I am developing an application using VB.net. I want to get away from the key stroke method. It takes to long to drive all of the files at the different printer driver settings.
If this were a Windows forms project I have used the System.Drawing.Printing namespace to accomplish my goal. However, I cannot import this namespace into a Class library.Overall here is what I am trying to do:I am trying to set the default printer using this namespace on both Windows XP and Windows 7 workstations. I am using Visual Basic 2008. My ultimate goal is to create a COM dll which is accessed from an older VBA program. The COM Dll will set the default printer to a new printer. Execution will return to the VBA program and it will print a Crystal Report. When the Crystal report is finished the VBA code will use the COM Dll one last time to set the default printer back to the original default Printer.But as I mentioned I cannot import the namespace I want to use into a Class library. Can someone give me some guidance on how to either import the namespace into a Class Library or how to determine the Default printer name and to set the Default printer to a different value?
Update: I was able to add the Imports Namespace after I added a reference to the correct DLL in Project Properties. My project is targeted at the 3.5 .Net Framework. The System.Drawing.Printing DLL is not in the 3.5 framework. That DLL is in the 2.0.50727 framework. After browsing and Adding that DLL, everything is working fine.BUT this leads to a new question. How would determining the default Printer be accomplished in the 3.5 .Net framework?Secondly, am I asking for trouble having a project target the 3.5 framework AND including a 2.0.50727 component in the same project?
What i want to do is simple but at the same time complicated. I have multiple .PDF file and i want to print them all. Thing is, all the .PDF are in 8,5 X 11 paper size. The printer is also on this paper size by default and i want to print them in a different size. I want to change the default printer size programatically so it prints in the right format. I need to change this in the program because i need to print in a few different paper size.
here is some code
Dim Process1 As New Process Dim starter As New ProcessStartInfo("C:Program FilesAdobeReader 10.0ReaderAcroRd32.exe", "/t " + path + filename + " " + printername + "")
I have a VB.NET module that prints out a series of Crystal and PDF documents as a packet. I need a way to temporarily change the user's default printer to the network printer for the PDF report (the Crystal reports are already redirected). Once the module has done its job, I want the module to return the default printer back to its original setting. Since Adobe Reader only works with the default printer, and there does not appear to be a way to redirect that, I need to change the deault for the duration of the module. I tried the following code, but it still sends the PDF output to the local printer.[code]...
I have a label printer with the driver loaded with the settings in the driver set I can print the exact label that I want, I have the problem that I need to set the default settings in the driver when the software starts. there are 6 of these printers and the only problem we have found is that different operators like to change the settings.
What I need to do is to set the following commands in the driver so each time the system is started (daily) it loads the settings and works properly.
I need to set
Custom Commands Text, Start, Parsed Text
In the Advanced Setup, turn on use printer settings
Other settings would be usfull but as I cannot set these I do not think I will be able to set others.
