Is it possible to do an autosave of DW as PDF format without any prompt?

Thanks

Eric,
 
With Appeon 3.0, if you install Appeon PDFPrinter as the default printer at the client, and execute DW.print for a Grid, Freeform, Group or Tabular DataWindow, the DW is saved to PDF without any prompt. 
 
Regards,
Julie

Appeon 3.0 does not support using the SaveAs function to save DWs into the PDF format,  which means syntax like dw.saveas("c:\demo.pdf",PDF!,true) is unsupported.  Besides, filing the PDF file into DBMS is unsupported.

 

Please try the following method to work around it. 

1.Execute DW.print for a Grid, Freeform, Group or Tabluar DW with PDFPrinter. This execution will generate a PDF file and save it to the "\My Documents\Appeon Printer" folder on the Client.

2.Read data from the PDF file with File functions (such as fileopen(), fileread()) and save it into the DBMS using the UPDATEBLOB statement.

 

Regards

Sally Li

Eric, inside the workarounds PBL that comes with Appeon, you'll find a AppeonPopMenu function and you call it something like :  AppeonPopMenu( lu_dw, 1, 1 );
 
Hope that helps.

Hi All,
 
Appeon 3.1 also includes plans for a PrintToPDF global function that will automatically take a DataWindow and create the PDF file for the end user.
