printing external pdf-file


(Guest) #1

With L&L 12, is it possible to trigger printing of a pdf-file on disc while printing the L&L document? I want to print certain pdf-files according to the data that is passed to the L&L-doc. Thus unlike loading an external file into the document, i want to have it printed directly…

Yes and no. You can try to (mis-)use LL_CMND_CHANGE_DCPROPERTIES_PAGE
to insert a page of your own, but then you must be able to print a PDF
onto a defined DC.

Anyway you need to be able to print a PDF onto a DC given by someone
else (i.e. LL) to be able to do that, however the implementation is.
There’s no way to “inject” that DC into Adobe Reader. OLE could
possibly work, but this is limited to one page.

What do you like to do? Why do you need it that way?

On the other hand, if you just need to print the PDFs in parallel, but
that they do not need to be in the same job, use ShellExecute() and
“printto” for each of the documents.
