 Setting Printer Options
Is there any way to set a printer to 'manual feed' using OPAL?  I can
only think that using the sendKeys() method will work, but it could
get bogged down depending on the printer...

Any help would be appreciated.

I 've struggled with this problem for a while. I finally came out by
a shareware library called Palapi. It found it on the internet in a
self-extracting file called PAPI19.EXE, maybe they now have PAPI20.EXE ?

It had a good routine called printerListen() or something like that.

method setManual()
   var
      po   PrinterOptionInfo
   endVar

   po.DefaultSource = prnManual
   if printerSetOptions(po) then
      return
   else
      errorShow("Could not set printer options.  Don't ask me why.");
   endIf
endmethod

I should work according to you and the Paradox manual, but it doesn't doe
it with me.
