DCPS V2.3 and Forms

Hi,

running DCPS V2.3 on Ovms V7.3-2, TCPIP V5.4,

Printing is ok if I use 'page_orientation=land' etc, however when I try to use forms, they are simply ignored. (ie prints as if using the dcps$deafult form).
Getting to the stage where I can't see the wood from the trees. Anyone any ideas where I am going wrong ?

(Test printer is HP laserjet 4100 - using RawTcpip to talk to it.)

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,

pls. notice that forms are usefull only for ANSI printing, with 2 exceptions (/SETUP and /STOCK).
We are using forms very heavily with DCPS and HP printers with success.
What exactly are you doing (print command, form definition...)?

And there it was, hidden behind a little bush in the middle of the forest - ANSI !!

Works fine now.

Thanks,
