print front panel to pdf programmatically

hello all

i have some problems if  i would like to print the graph of a front panel into a pdf respectively to a printer.
first the quality is a big difference which method i use. trial and error shows me that print front panel is much better than add graph to a report, see picture attached.

with this better method i would like to do a batch of printing front panels into pdf's programmatically without any user input. the problem is that is only possible to set the printer name and nothing more. acrobat writer for example shows up a popup to tip in the filename then. any idea how i can ship around this input and print the graph with the same quality?

thanks in advance, mischl

One of my colleagues has done this with FreePDF XP. Regrettably I don't know any details but that you can create more than one PDF printer and you can prevent any popups.
