Duplex Printing


In NetExpress we used the following code to set duplex printing:-

In particular we used : cblte-pp-duplex Select duplex or double-sided printing using one of the DMDUP- constants. 

How can you do this using Visual Cobol .NET code?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Hi Neil,

Most of the PC_PRINTER library routines are supported in .NET as well as native code although some of them, (i.e. PC_PRINTER_INFO) behave a bit differently because a different coordinate system is used in .NET print functions.

The PC_PRINTER_DEFAULT_PROPERTIES that you are using should work in .NET as well. If you are finding that this does not behave correctly then I would suggest that you open up a support incident with Customer Care so we can look into this.
