Specify Print Options

Recommended Posts


I'm working on scripting a button that manages the print functions. I have disabled the print button on the menu bar and I have made a button to click to print. We have had issues with people just clicking print. Then we have the printer spitting out the layout for every record. I know how to change the preferences so it prints only the current record and I would like to automate it so they can click the button and that's all.

Does anyone know how to specify the print options.

I just need to change the printing preferences to "Filemaker Pro" instead of "Copies and Pages" and then click the current record radio button.

There are two options in scripting.

1)Print Setup[]

2 Print[]

Take a look at both those options. To have it just print without the user doing anything select "Perform without dialog"
