Default printing in a rollpaper

Hi,

Im again.
Now my client have DotMartix printer with a continues rollpaper. His billing length may vary bill to bill. so i have to print the exact length only ( sometimes the length could go 16 inches) and to make things more complicate im using Tamil Font (which is my regional language font).

So how could i set the printer length to the exact number of lines? or any way to stop the printer eject?

regards
ackid32

Default No clue

Sorry but I haven't had a chance to work with that kind of printer in years so I don't really know. (But I wanted to let you know that at least someone had looked at your question.)

You might look at the PrintDocument object's PrinterSettings property. Or its QueryPageSettings event. In theory, you can print each page with different settings, although I haven't tried changing the page lengths.

Sorry I can't be more help. If you figure it out, post the solution here.
