Print the document to a specific printer


In one of my previous posts, I have discussed how to download and print a remote file. Here is the blog link

The solution in the above post will print the file to the default printer and recently I was working on a modification where I have to print the file to a specific printer instead of the default printer and couple of readers of my blog post also asked how to do this, so I would like to share today the solution for it.

I was checking online to modify my old solution to print to a specific printer and few suggested to me to use the arguments property of the ProcessStartInfo and also the below MSDN example suggests the same, but unfortunately, I was not successful using that property.


To solve this issue I have found another solution which is to use the Print Document and in fact, I think this is an easy solution when compared to the other solution in my previous post.

Below is the function for it.

PROCEDURE PrintFile@1000000018(FilePath@1000000002 : Text[250]);


PrinterName@1240060002 : Text;

PrintDocument@1240060003 : DotNet "'System.Drawing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument";

PrinterSettings@1240060004 : DotNet "'System.Drawing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings";


PrinterName := 'MF8200C Series';

PrintDocument := PrintDocument.PrintDocument;

PrintDocument.DocumentName := FilePath;

PrinterSettings := PrinterSettings.PrinterSettings;

PrinterSettings.PrinterName := PrinterName;

PrintDocument.PrinterSettings := PrinterSettings;




If you have any other tips or suggestions, please do share them in the comments below.
