Select printer

Hi to all :)

Is this forum still active?

I need to select a specific printer that is not Windows default for one specific report. Is there a way to do that?

Regards, Nenad

First you have to identify tthe correct name for the printer you need, (check tprinter class) then you have to send it to your fr3 with this:

::oFastReport:oPrintOptions:cPrinter:="your printer"

Unfortunately, this is not work (undefined variable cPrinter). I try with

oFr:SetProperty ("PrintOptions", "cPrinter", "My Printer")

But this has no effect either :(

Ah, I realized what the problem was! I use FrReportManager as base class instead TFastReport. Unfortunately, it's a big problem for me to change this, is there a way to set up a printer from this class? I try

::Super:oPrintOptions:cPrinter

but :oPrintOptions is NIL??

Ignacio, thank you very much!

The problem is of course in my code. I did that part a long time ago (Spirin version), so I forgot how it works. Basically, all my reports look like this:

oFr := FRInit()
...
...
oFr:activate()

FRInit() doing this:

Código: Seleccionar todo

oFr := FrReportManager():New()
oFr:SetProperty("DESIGNER", "DefaultFont.Charset", 238)
oFr:SetFormatSettings(frxThousandSeparator, ".")
...
:activate() is this method:

Código: Seleccionar todo

::Create() 
::LoadFromFile (::cScript) 
::Init()
::ShowReport()
The problem occurs because variable oPrintOptions = NIL before the ::create() activation! As I put oFr:oPrintOptions:cPrinter := "..." before ::activate(), I got an error.
