This is what I used to print on my school network (The code is done by Hacker Dan but I discovered which location to print to). All I had to do to get the location of the printer using the File->Print command and it says there the network location of the printer (for me anyways). I just subbed that information into where you would normally put "LPT1" and voila.

code:

%%Network%%
var dataout :int %the var can have any name you want

open: dataout,"//school/room-printer", put % //school/room-printer

put:dataout, "TEXT TO PRINT" %string to print
close: dataout %close the connection to the printer


As for USB you have to right click on your printer and give it sharing rights. You then type //computerName/printerName where you would normally put "LPT1". As far as USB printing I have not had too much luck. My printer will turn on but will not print, I dont know if its just me or for every one so let me know.

code:

%%USB%%
var dataout :int %the var can have any name you want

open:dataout,"//computerName/printerName",put
put:dataout, "TEXT TO PRINT" %string to print
close: dataout %close the connection to the printer

Well either way if I was looking for HELP with printing in turing I would probably have looked in the HELP section, but suit your self.

BTW thanks flashkicks, did u use this for the USB or network?

This code allows you to print to any printer installed (user's choice). It pops up the normal dialogue with # of copies, print range, etc.
code:

var dataout :int %the var can have any name you want

open: dataout, "printer", put %yes, litterally the string "printer"
put:dataout, "STRING TO SEND TO PRINTER" %string to print
close: dataout %close the connection to the printer

It is bad enough that you brought up 2 old topics Beard0, but to say the exact same thing, three times? Two in tutorials, and one in help . . Confused

Tony, in a PM to me, wrote:
hey,

could you repost that code sniplet about printing using Windows? it was an excellent addition to the tutorial, though unfortunatly that was lost in a site rollback.

Thx


Someone is likely to look only at one printing tutorial, not both. I didn't ask the question in help, someone else did. I'm not doing this to be an jerk, but to help other people.

I guess I didn't understand the circumstances, my bad Razz. I juss figured that you discovered something, and tried to put it in where ever you could. Trowing Tomato
