V4 Print driver developement RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to create a V4 Printer Driver which will Invoke another application and upload the print document to the application. I have gone through different samples from Microsoft but unable to find how to invoke a different application on click of print. I tried to add some methods and add codes to existing filter methods in driver render filters but was not successful. Please help .

  • A driver can't have a UI. Whatever the other application does, you must create a special version that can execute as a driver that does not have a UI.

  • Hi Sam,

    Thank you for the  reply. Actually I do not want  UI events. Instead of sending the rendered file to the device I want it to send to a desktop application which will do further processing. But, Unable to find where I can write the code in driver.
