Set Custom Papersize To Printer From Code In .net 2005?
Mar 11, 2010
we have a vb.net windows appliacation that uses sql server as backend. we have created all reports for this application using crystal report that is embedded in visual studio 2005. everything is working fine except the reports specially which needs to be displayed is custome mode. we have used some code to dynamically set the printer settings because at runtime the original printer settings are unknown and we don't want to let user set printer settings manually everytime before taking the printout. so the question is, how to set a custom papersize programactically. here is the code snippet that we have used to set some printer settings in runtime :-
we have usedreportdocument object to set printer options. we have two rpts which need to displayed in custom paper format. the formats are like 9X6 and 14X12. we have created these formats in server properties. now how to to set this from code? like in place of rpt.PrintOptions.PaperSize = PaperSize.PaperFanfoldUS...some sort of syntax which will let us to put the papersize in place ofPaperSize.PaperFanfoldUS...
I am facing a problem in printing document using custom paper sizes in dot matrix printer,i created a new paper size thru code and try to use the same paper size for printing, in preview it shows exactly [ giving output in same pape size ], but while printing the paper moves for A4/Letter and i cann't able to enable the Tear off Mode.i am using C# 2005.
I use a printcode in a Class, and a printcode by the Button in the Form.Olso i have a code for fill the ComboBox, with al printers.Is it possible to do a selecting in the ComboBox, with as results that the print go to that printer.

The problem seen to appear again in printing job...I have a printer(Epson TM-T88IV Receipt)Before printing, i would like to check if printer is available for printing or not (connect or not). if not, i will show the print preview form. otherwise it will print automatically
i have bin searching around the internet to find a code that helps me print to a specific printer i define within the code. i wasn't lucky to find any vb.net or c# code, i only found vb6 code. is there a way to do this in vb.net?
i would like to write a system that every time the user using the printer to print, when the user click on the print button user name and password are request after user key in then only the printing job continue...... now my problem is how to let the spooler pause and wait untill the user name correct only the printer continue printing!!!
When I print to the printer, using the PrintDocument, I want it to be able to throw an exception if there is a problem. Currently, if I print to a printer that has a jam, is offline, or doesn't even exist, VB still thinks it printed fine. I never get an error. How can I have the printer report back to my program so that if I print to a printer that doesn't even exist, it wont let me do it? I just tried adding a LPT1 printer to my computer (and there is no local printer). I called it some random printer and installed some random driver. Then used my program to print to that printer and never got an error.
Using VB.NET 2005 Express edition, I have a task to create a simple receipt using a Epson TM T88IV Thermal printer. I don't have any idea where to start. Can you show some good example or links that I can study to create an application?
how to use vb code to code the crystal report viewer in the vb to print directly instead of view first before print from specific NAME of printer? i also need to ask how to set the printer name through in the vb code ??
below is my code for copying an image from a form to send it to the printer.it works but it tends to be a little blurry. is there anyway to make it sharper?
Bmp = New Bitmap(Me.ClientSize.Width, Me.ClientSize.Height) Bmp = New Bitmap(800, 500) Dim G As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(Bmp) G.CopyFromScreen(Me.PointToScreen(Me.ClientRectangle.Location), New Point(0, 0), Me.ClientSize)
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.
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 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..

While implementing this article,i cant understand what they try to mean by this:Still in the Code Window, change the line that reads:Inherits System.Windows.Forms.UserControl So that it reads:Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Button..if i change this line of the designer form: Inherits System.Windows.Forms.UserControl to this: Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Button...then when i return to the designer,i am getting this error: The designer cannot process the code at line 22: Me.AutoScaleDimensions = New System.Drawing.SizeF(6.0!, 13.0!) The code within the method 'Initialize Component' is generated by the designer and should not be manually modified. Please remove any changes and try opening the designer again.
Doesn't have to be in VB.NET, could be in C# or just point me to the right registry entries that needs to be created to make this work and I am happy too.Anyways we have a windows client server application called let's say "CoolApp". Now a third party is developing a web front-end using the Interface, BL and DL dlls. They want to add a functionality when user does some specific search on a records lets say a customer with the id of 12345, and then they can send an email to anyone with the access to the application where the link in the email would look something like;
I've just finished a project, but in it, you can switch between three backgrounds, and I want to export it to another computer with an installatinoprogram, but I have no idea how to do that. I know that it should put these pictures somewhere so the program knows were they are. while it's installing, i want a picture to come up over the status bar, and maybe something that you must agree with terms.
i am creating my own message box. My msgbox contains 4 button , so i want to return an integer value as the button no. that was selected (i.e return 1 for button 1, 2 for btn 2...)i tried me.dialogresult=1 , but its not working
We have a Windows.Forms.PropertyGrid control that we use to edit application settings. We expose the application settings through a class, giving each setting attributes to control the appearance. An example property definition is shown below:
<DisplayName("Snap Tolerance"), _ Category("Tolerances"), _ Description("The distance (in Points - 1/72"") to be searched for snap points.")> _
i have a MDI Parent. As you know a MDI parent can have scroll bars. I want to make customized scroll bars. Meaning instead of windows default scroll bars i want just to images / buttons (arrows (up/down)) that when clicked will scroll up and down, and then others for left and right...
How do i do this? I dont want windows default scroll bars to appear.. i know can disable them but then is there a property / method to scroll in a direction, let my code do the work.... i would also then want it so as you scroll my custom scroll buttons wont go away, as you scroll they should stay in the same spot.. i think i can do that by a panel and docking, so that isnt important.
how to make linq2sql behave like my custom code used to, I want to check to make sure that it isn't already "built" in behavior that I can just use by setting up the relationships right in the designer...
Very simple example: I have two tables: Person and Notes, with a 1 to many relationship (1 Person, many notes), linked by Person.ID->Note.PersonID.
I have a stored procedure (all data access is done via SP's and I plan on continuing that) which makes the Link2SQL a bit more work for me.
sp_PersonGet(@ID int) which returns the person record and sp_PersonNotesGet(@PersonID) which returns a set of related notes for this person.So far so good, I have an object:
Dim myPerson As Person = db.PersonGet(pnID).Single
and I can access my fields: myPerson.Name, myPerson.Phone etc.and I can also do a
Dim myNotes As Notes = db.PersonNotesGet(pnID)
to get a set of notes and I can iterate thru this list like:
For Each N As Note In myNotes ( do something) Next[code].....
Basically, Linq2SQl would need to call 2 stored procedures each time a Person record is created...Is this doable "out of the box", or is this something I need to code around for myself?
I am creating an array of customer controls by doing the following: Dim CtlLosArray(150) As Control
Then I'm setting up the first control in the array like this: CtlLosArray(1) = New ShieldLOSInfobox CtlLosArray(1).Location = New Point(0, 0) CtlLosArray(1).Visible = True CtlLosArray(1).Show() CtlLosArray(1).Name = "Label1" Me.pnlLOS.Controls.Add(CtlLosArray(1))
Now on this custom control I have a panel and a few text boxes and as you can see I may be adding about 150 of these custom controls. What I am wanting to do is to be able to access that control then the item on that control based on the array. Something like the following: CtlLosArray(1).Controls.Item(Panel1).backcolor = Color.Yellow But the above does not work. How I can access a specific item on the customer control within the array?
