Hi !

I'm working with Delphi 3.0 C/S under WinNT 4.0 and Win98.
I've a problem with printer-management. I want to install a virtuell printer for all net-users. The printjobs from all users shall arrive there and then i want to select these printjobs (a single printjob or more) moving them on real printdrivers to print the textfiles on special paperforms.
I don't need a complete solution but if you have any ideas what components i need or if there are special api-calls for my problem it would be very kind hearing from you! Thanks a lot!!!

Many greetings,
Ingo

If you don't know what kind of printer will be used, I suggest using a file save operation to spool files to one location. Then look at the functions available in the Printers.pas unit. There is a global Printer object that allows you to get a list of available printers, select one and print to it.
