Printer tray's


I have the following requirement:

The form purchase order is to be issued for each purchasing group into a different Printer tray:

Group1 to tray1

Group2 to tray2

and so on

(about 8 groups).

I know that I can define the printer tray’s in a XDC-File and I can set in the form the paper type.

But I’m not able to find a solution, how I can tell the form witch try is used for group 1, group 2, etc.

Many thanks in advance for your help

    Hi Daniel,

    here are your steps, what to do, to solve your problem.

    Unfortunaly you aren't able to select the tray in Adobe direct. The way what they go, is, that the printer knows, where to print...

    In your case, I think, you got different salesunits or something like that and you have to find the correct paper, with the preprints at.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Create a second Masterpage. and surround it by an pageset ( German Seitensatz )


    1. Select for each Masterpage, a different paper ( see the screen below ), most times i use A4 and A4 Color.
    2. Now, you have to modify your driver-program and build a logic, when to select the other paperformat. Just throw another parameter into your interface, so you can get it again in the Adobe.
    3. Last step to archive this is, that you have to code with javascript in the initialize-Event the correct pageset, depending out of the interface-parameter, which you created the step before.
    4. Of course, now you have to modify the XDC-File, to set the correct tray for the paper. But this should be part of the basis-guys🤪


    Screen to step 1:

    Screen to step 2:

    I hope, this help you out of the situation.

    If you need help to Script the event, just let me know, I think, I will find a example in my datatrash:-)
