Quickrpt 2.0i setting the output bin in program

How do I set the output bin in the program.

Like:
qrInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := ?;

I've tried a lot, but this one has me stumped... I don't have the source code so that might make it impossible?

Please no...

Hi,
There can be:
Auto
Casette
Envelope
EnvManual
First
LargeCapacity
LargeFormat
Last
Lower
Manual
Middle
SmallFormat
Tractor
Upper

Is this your report form you are editing? If so, there is an option in the Object Inspector - Printer Settings -Output Bin.
Hope this helps.

I need for the operator to be able to choose "Manual Feed", "Lower Tray" etc while RUNNING the form.  Thus, any answer which includes the object inspector will not work.

I need to know what goes in the ? above.

What MaxCom said is correct : OutputBin property is of type TQRBin and TQRBin is a set of the ones MaxCom said. So if you want to use the Middle outputbin, you write :

 qrInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Middle;

Though, if the printer doesn't support this property, the default (first) output bin will be used. LOOK OUT! : YOU CAN'T CHANGE OUTPUT BIN DURING A REPORT!!

if (fMainRepMenu.rgPrintTo.ItemIndex = 0) then
   qrLOInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Upper;
if (fMainRepMenu.rgPrintTo.ItemIndex = 1) then
   qrLOInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Lower;
if (fMainRepMenu.rgPrintTo.ItemIndex = 2) then
   qrLOInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Manual;

This code does not compile.  What do I need to include to make it compile?  

The compiler returns a message stating: Undeclared Identifier: 'Upper'.  Undeclared Identifier: 'Lower'. etc...

If I try to give it a numeric value it says that integer is not compatible with TQRBin type.

Hi Loucks,

I see your problem, try it this way, it doesn't gives a compile error, but I can't try it out on a printer. Give me a sign if it works.

 qrLOInvoice.QRPrinter.OutputBin := Manual;

Have fun,

nope, still doesn't work...   it seems like I should have to use another unit or something where TQRBin is declared, but I can't find anything like that...  Please keep trying

Strange, it compiles when I use that code, here is the form code.
I'll try to find another solution.


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, Buttons, ExtCtrls, quickrpt;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    QuickRep1: TQuickRep;
    BitBtn1: TBitBtn;
    procedure BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 Quickrep1.QRPrinter.OutputBin := Last;
end;

Have you put in fMainRepMenu the quickrpt unit?
end.

created a new project and tried it your way but it still didn't work...  I have "used" the quickrpt unit and still not working...

Do you have the full product from qusoft or just the standard?

I am using quickrpt 2.0i and delphi 3.0.

Hi Jason,

I'm using a registered version of QR 2.0i, with Delphi 2.0.

Try it like the first way :

 qrLOInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Upper;

but add unit qrprntr to your unit.

Have fun! Hope this works,

Hi Jason,

Use following code example to change outputbin :

  qrLOInvoice.PrinterSettings.OutputBin := Upper;

BUT ADD ----> UNIT QRPRNTR <---- to your unit.

Well, it toke some time, but I'm glad it works now.

Have fun with your program,
c.u. ZifNab;

                         Have fun! Hope this works,
