I'm almost ready to break down and buy QuickReport 2.0.
Problem:

On my HP 5Si I cannot tell Quickreport 2.0 (Delphi 3.0) which tray to select from.  (For an extra 50 pts someone tell me which output bin I choose in QR to put it to the left output tray.)

I am running this in a Windows NT 4.0 environment, and I can't even configure it to send to tray 3 from the printer driver... (I can, but when I send it to that printer, it prints to tray 2, oblivious that it should print to tray 3.)

Please help!!!!!

Use OutputBin!

Property of TPrinterSettings.

You can choose between :
 First, Middle, EnvManual, SmallFormat, Cassette, Upper, Manual,
 Auto, LargeFormat, Last, Lower, Envelope, Tractor,  LargeCapacity.

You can't change the tray during a report!

The real question is how do I choose the SOURCE tray (I know to choose the output bin, but I don't want to go and try every one, I'd like to know which one to USE)

My bad ZifNab... You were right I am stupid... Redo the answer and I will award you the points.. Sorry for just assuming that output bin meant output and not source tray...

Hi Jason,

I don't mind, but thanks for trying out my answer,even if you thought it was a wrong one. And I don't know if you're stupid, I at least did'nt mentioned that :-), but you're right, it's a  bit confusing.

Use OutputBin!

Have fun,
