Re: Print images to network printer



fixed

What's driving it? Is is a user on a green screen selecting something and
you are wanting to print a graphic from that then you would probably look
at doing a call to a PC program (Your .Net program) from the 400 to print
the image. If it is a user in a PC program you are going to trigger it from
there.

Thanks Matt.

I would prefer the .Net solution too but didn't know how I would call it.

I'm also thinking of trying EGL but I would have to get past the learning
curve and I don't know if I have that long.

One option would be to Call a Java program:

GUI/PrintanImagetoprintdirectly.htm

Here are some tips on calling java programs from RPG:

ols.iseries.pgmgd.doc/c0925076172.htm

Another option (non IBM i solution) is to write the function in .NET
(and you
could call it from the IBM i in a whole host of different ways (REST
services,
run remote pc command)). For the .NET stuff it's even simpler to print
then
in Java, see the code here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2337252/print-image-in-net-winform

By far the easiest solution in my opinion is to do it in .NET if you
can. The
amount of code to accomplish the same goal will be much smaller in .NET
versus the alternatives.

Subject: Print images to network printer

I have a requirement to be able to print images stored on our IFS on a
business group's printer. Some of these print requests can run into the
tens
of thousands of pages.

Is anyone printing images to network printers from the i? If so, would
you
mind sharing how you do it?
