DOT MATRIX PRINTER
Posted on 2001-06-04
well i've finished writing a piece of software, But ive a problem
the customer who has bought the software has a OKI 320 dot matrix printer.
This printer has to print a barcode from another piece of software so if windows cannot have any printer drivers installed. otherwise it stops the barcode from printing...this is not my problem.
the last piece of software I wrote does not like dot matrix printers.
most of my software only likes to print to inkjets.
I need somebody to tell me that using the printer.print function will work on a dot matrix without giving any run time error when compiled.
I dont have a dot matrix to test this on so I can only speculate.
When I install the software for demonstration I don't really want to explain why it does'nt work with dot matrix i would rather know it will work.
I would of thought that the PRINTER.PRINT command would work with all printers.
baring in mind that im not trying to set any fonts only the default courier
Im only asking for opions on this and not for code hence 5 points.
