option

Option can be one of the following constants:

  • PRINTER_COPIES: sets how many copies should be printed, value must be an integer.
  • PRINTER_MODE: specifies the type of data (text, raw or emf), value must be a string.
  • PRINTER_TITLE: specifies the name of the document, value must be a string.
  • PRINTER_ORIENTATION: specifies the orientation of the paper, value can be either PRINTER_ORIENTATION_PORTRAIT or PRINTER_ORIENTATION_LANDSCAPE
  • PRINTER_RESOLUTION_Y: specifies the y-resolution in DPI, value must be an integer.
  • PRINTER_RESOLUTION_X: specifies the x-resolution in DPI, value must be an integer.
  • PRINTER_PAPER_FORMAT: specifies a predefined paper format, set value to PRINTER_FORMAT_CUSTOM if you want to specify a custom format with PRINTER_PAPER_WIDTH and PRINTER_PAPER_LENGTH. value can be one of the following constants.

    • PRINTER_FORMAT_CUSTOM: let's you specify a custom paper format.
    • PRINTER_FORMAT_LETTER: specifies standard letter format (8 1/2- by 11-inches).
    • PRINTER_FORMAT_LEGAL: specifies standard legal format (8 1/2- by 14-inches).

  • PRINTER_PAPER_WIDTH: if PRINTER_PAPER_FORMAT is set to PRINTER_FORMAT_CUSTOM, PRINTER_PAPER_WIDTH specifies a custom paper width in mm, value must be an integer.
  • PRINTER_SCALE: specifies the factor by which the printed output is to be scaled. the page size is scaled from the physical page size by a factor of scale/100. for example if you set the scale to 50, the output would be half of its original size. value must be an integer.
  • PRINTER_BACKGROUND_COLOR: specifies the background color for the actual device context, value must be a string containing the rgb information in hex format i.e. "005533".
  • PRINTER_TEXT_COLOR: specifies the text color for the actual device context, value must be a string containing the rgb information in hex format i.e. "005533".
  • PRINTER_TEXT_ALIGN: specifies the text alignment for the actual device context, value can be combined through OR'ing the following constants:

    • PRINTER_TA_BASELINE: text will be aligned at the base line.
    • PRINTER_TA_BOTTOM: text will be aligned at the bottom.
    • PRINTER_TA_TOP: text will be aligned at the top.
    • PRINTER_TA_CENTER: text will be aligned at the center.
    • PRINTER_TA_LEFT: text will be aligned at the left.
    • PRINTER_TA_RIGHT: text will be aligned at the right.

value

The option value.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
