MBS( "PrintDialog.SetTray"; Value )   More


Parameter Description Example
Value The name of the tray to use. "Tray1"


Returns OK or error.


Sets the tray name the plugin should select.
Value may be Tray1, Tray2, tray-1, tray-2, auto, Left, Right, Lower, Middle, Upper and depends on the printer driver. This is not the name displayed in dialog, but the internal value which is the same for all localization.
Same as using PrintDialog.SetOption with "InputSlot" as key and tray name as value.

Please print once with dialog to pick a tray and then query PageSetupDialog.GetLastSettings to lookup the internal tray name. Usually named InputSlot in the settings.


Set Tray-2 as the tray for paper:

MBS("PrintDialog.SetTray"; "Tray-2")
