problem in printer custom setting
Posted on 2001-08-01
I have a visual foxpro application which prints different reports, label in different paper size, and
all these report will not exceed a certain size.
To do this in Win 98, what I need to do just to select the custom paper size of the printer setting,
enter the maximum figure for paper size, and my foxpro application will be able to print different report
in different size under that maximum limit.
The problem was that now it goes to run on win 2000. my windows 2000 does not allow user to select custom
paper size. How am I goin to solve this problem?
I tried to check on the GPD file of the printer, it provide a option called CUSTOMIZE under the
and under that there is various option of selected paper type such as A4, LETTER, LEGAL, etc.
I can see the CUSTOMIZE option which have the field like below:
*MinSize: PAIR(3600, 6000)
*MaxSize: PAIR(10200, 32767)
It seems that the system allow user to modify the custom paper size but could anyone tell me how to
select the custom paper so that the system will not print the document using any pre-defined paper type,
and will come to CUSTOMIZE option?
Thanx for reading my question.
