The solution I am working on requires pdf files in containers be printed via script on the scan of a barcode.
To complicate matters the printer used (1 of 3) needs to be selected dynamically from record data.
These are shipping labels with different preprinted content or different sizes for different locations/services.
The deployed solution will be running hosted FM Pro 15 on Windows 10.
I think I might be able to make do with web portals - haven't had a chance to test it yet.
I could go to different layouts and use different scripts depending on data in records.
I'm developing on a Mac in FM adv 14 currently and the web portals are not rendering in preview mode.
I tried "send event ("avert"; "pdoc"; $path) but the printer dialogue was initiated and I can't actually select the printer this way.
I'm not too flash on command line commands.
Is there a suite of these that could select the printer for me (and other controls, number of copies etc) and then print the file? perhaps I could use "send event" and pass a calculated script (command set) to the command line?
Thanks for any help,
