Use the printerOutput property to determine or change the destination of a print job.

Value

The printerOutput can be one of the following values.

- device: output to the physical printer

- file:<filename> : output to the given file. The format of the file depends on the platform:

+ Windows Vista uses XPS format.

+ UNIX uses PostScript format.

+ Mac OS X uses PDF format.

+ Older Windows versions use a system-specific format.

- preview: output to print preview (only supported on Mac OS X).

- system: output in a system-specific mode. This setting is read-only, and can occur if you configure an output in the answer printer dialog that Revolution does not recognise (e.g. WorkFlow output options on Mac OS X 10.4 and above).

The default value depends on the printer driver.

Comments

Setting the printerOutput to an invalid value will result in a script execution error.

To have an effect, this property must be set before calling open printing.
