Visual FoxPro 9 Report Printing
Posted on 2007-04-09
I am using Visual Foxpro 9, developing in Vista but testing in Vista and XP SP2. Vista isn't the issue, because I was developing on the XP machine prior to getting Vista and experiencing the same issues. I am having printing issues.
I am trying to automate printing. Regardless of what I do with "Set Printer to Name" when I run "Report Form X to Printer" It always prints to the Windows Default Printer in Vista and XP. I may need to use the new object-assisted printing, but I can't find any good doumentation.
To elaborate on what I am doing... A form pops up with options about what test results they want to print. They have a choice between print preview or print to a specific printer that they choose. In addition, They have an option to email the doctor (tied to the test) the results. The email checkbox triggers an email process that starts by printing the generated form to the "Adobe PDF" Driver. VFP will not send the report to that driver, it always goes to the Windows Default Printer. It's not an issue with the adobe driver either because I tried sending it to a secondary local printer and it still goes the Windows Default Printer.
Any help would be great, Thanks in advance
