L_LTPRINTERCLIENT_API L_BOOL EXT_FUNCTION L_PrnClntStartup(pszPrinterName, pbtInitialData, dwLenght, ppUserData)

Callback function to be fired by the printer driver as a job is being initialized.

Parameters

pszPrinterName

Character string that contains the printer's name.

pbtInitialData

Pointer to a byte array that holds the initialization data set in the server machine.

dwLenght

Size of the initialization data in the pbtInitialData.

ppUserData

Void pointer that you can set to pass one or more additional parameters that the callback function(s) needs.

Returns

Value Meaning
TRUE The job will be continued.
FALSE The job will be cancelled.

Comments

The L_PrnClntStartup callback function will be fired from the printer driver, which will call this function with the pbtInitialData that contains a byte array that holds the initialization data specified for this printer.

If the user sets the value of ppUserData, the value of ppUserData will be received in the other callback functions.

The user must implement this function in the user demo DLL.

This function should be exported in the DLL module definition (def) file.

Required DLLs and Libraries

Platforms

Win32, x64.

Example

This should be included in the client demo DLL
Don't forget to include These functions in the Module Definition file (def) for this dll
These functions does not have ASCII versions
