Is it possible to configure only printer options?

Postby cardel » Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:39 am

I would like to know if it is possible to use COM interface for printer options configuration (filename, destination ...) and save this configuration. I would like to use previously saved configuration and print from some windows programs later.

I would like to:

1) configure printer using COM interface and save settings
2) send printer job to this printer with some program (not by using COM object)

Is this process allowed?

Thank you

Yes, this is possible with novaPDF SDK.

novaPDF printer options are grouped in "profiles". You may create, using the COM, a new profile, set the desired options and save the profile. novaPDF can have several profiles defined, but only one of them is the "active profile", meaning this is the profile that is currently used. You may also set the active profile using the COM. The profile remains "active profile" until another profile is set as active.

So you may define the options and save them in a profile and later on all printing jobs will use this profile, until you change it again.

Thank you.
