foxpro ???printer commands
Posted on 1998-06-11
I am having trouble with initialization commands to the printer for FOXPRO2.5 DOS report forms.
the commands are preceeded with the "???" send directly to printer. We are using a HPlj4 printer and an Epson dot matrix printer. The user has the option of selecting the printer. A typical printer commands reads:
??? CHR(27) + "(S16.6H0B" && courier-condensed print
??? CHR(27) + "&L10" && Landscape
??? CHR(27) + "&L0O" && portrait
What is happening is I still get landscape when I request portrait or vice versa. Our system does not let the individual operator to use the Foxpro Printer Setup.
