VRF-VEE5.01 on Win95 & Deskjet printers

Question asked by aufenanger on Feb 9, 1999
Hi Rachel,

I don't think there is a difference between the LaserJet and the DeskJet
commant. I actually don' have a manual of the DeskJet 600 or whatever you
use. But I have a manual of DeskJet500. There is no difference between this
commands. Are you sure, that you use the "FormFeed" sign at the last byte of
your side. If not there can be an overflow.

Best regards
Barbara Aufenanger

     Hi B. Aufenanger,

     Thank you for your answer.
     It works fine if you just use - to file - LPT1. But I also print
graphs in
     the same program and strange things happen. If I first print, the
printer
     does not print the graph later (I print it with the plot terminal on
the XY
     Trace or with the menu on the right button of the mouse) and a red
light
     appears on the printer. After I quit the program and start it again
and
     restart the printer, somehow the printer does not print the under
score line.
     The situation is real bad in a program where I use ISA bus cards.
The first
     time I approuch a configuration object I get a red error message
999.
     Could it be because the Deskjet commands are not exactly the
LaserJet
     commands ?

     Regards

     Rachel
