Configuring a Printer Settings Dialog Box for the Siebel Handheld Application
If you want, you can configure a printer settings dialog box to popup once printing is initiated by a user in your Siebel Handheld application. The printer settings dialog box prompts the user to specify printer settings such as printer type, port, paper size, and page orientation.
If you do not configure a printer settings dialog box for your Handheld application, then you must manually configure the printer settings for your Handheld application in the setup.ini registry file. Print configuration settings are described in more detail in Print Configuration Settings.
NOTE: The print settings that the user selects in the printer settings dialog box override those set in the registry (setup.ini file). The print settings specified via tags in the print template override those set in the registry or selected by the user in the printer settings dialog box.
To configure a printer settings dialog box
- In the installation directory of your Handheld application, open the setup.ini file.
- In the [Printing] Section of your setup.ini file, add PrinterUserSelect=1 or PrinterUserSelect=2.
PrinterUserSelect=1 - displays a printer dialog box for each copy of each form if multi-form, multi-copy printing is used.
PrinterUserSelect=2 - displays a printer dialog box only once when a form starts printing; the same settings are used for all copies of all forms if multi-form, multi-copy printing is used.
- Install and synchronize your Handheld application. For more information about installing and synchronizing your Handheld application, see Process of Installing the Siebel Handheld Application and Synchronizing Data on Your Handheld Device.
