Does anyone know of a way to print Adobe Acrobat files within Delphi (either 1, 2 or 3) without calling Acrobat?

I would prefer a component, but anything will help.

Many thanks!

I don't know what you mean by not calling Acrobat. If you don't want to make a PDF parser, you will need to launch Acrobat.
I've asked Adobe if they could document the "auto" print feature of Acrobat, and their answer is as follows:

-------------

The method to do what your customer wants is undocumented because it has
not been tested and therefore is unsupported. As far as I know, however, there haven't been any problems reported. The parameters are as follows.

AcroRd32.exe /t path printername drivername portname

The four parameters of the /t option evaluate to path, printername, drivername and portname (all strings). It fills out AVDocPrintParamRec struct which is documented in the Acrobat Viewer Plug-In API On-Line Reference
Manual (appended). FYI, I have also appended Distiller info that among other things describes the available command line options.

-----------------

I hope that this can help you.

Thanks for the info.  However, would it be possible to get the Distiller and Plug-In reference docos?  I will grade your answer as excellent regardless, but it would really be appreciated if you could append that information.

Cheers,

Stuart

When i got the answer from Adobe, it was forwarded by a Danish distributor, who i think, has omitted the distiller info. As i didn't needed that part, i just left it alone. Anyway i'll try to write back to him to get the distiller info. This was two weeks ago, so i hope he haven't trashed it.

Kenneth

PS. Thanks for the grade !!!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi Stuart,

Now i've got the information - it looks like it's compressed in some kind of Macintosh Style (HQX).
Well, drop your mail adress and i'll send it...
