Double-sided printing from autosequence

Highlighted
Is there an equivalent method to the DocStart solution to multiple graph printing in one document for DIAdem versions 3, 6, and 7 as these versions don't seem to have the DocStart command. We need an autosequence which has multiple calls to PicPrint to be able to use the double-sided printing features of our printer.

Hi,

DOCStart opens a multi-page print job (exclusive) and DOCEnd stops it. I've looked in the help files of DIAdem 3, 6 and 7. In all DIAdem 32-Bit versions I found information's about DOCStart and DOCEnd so that this functionality should work with DIAdem 6 or higher.

Example:

VBS Syntax:
call DataLoad("CLASS")
call DocStart
call PicLoad("CLASS_1")
call PicUpdate
call PicPrint("WinPrint")
Call PicLoad("CLASS_2")
call PicUpdate
call PicPrint("WinPrint")
call PicLoad("CLASS_3")
call PicUpdate
call PicPrint("WinPrint")
call DocEnd


AUT Syntax:

DataLoad('KLASSE');
DocStart;
PicLoad('KLASSE_1');
PicUpdate;
PicPrint('WinPrint');
PicLoad('KLASSE_2');
PicUpdate;
PicPrint('WinPrint');
PicLoad('KLASSE_3');
PicUpdate;
PicPrint('WinPrint');
DocEnd;


I hope this will help you.

Greetings

Walter

Thanks Walter

I am running DIAdem v6.00.009 and there is no mention of the DocStart and DocEnd commands in the help, and my autosequence throws:

Error in Autosequence - processing in line: 746 (ABD1_BNC)
Undefined command "DocStart"!

Does this mean I need to get my customers to upgrade? Is there just a patch?

Hi

Sorry, I've just looked in the help files of the latest version 6 - 6.02.00. But, you are right in 6.00.09 this function is not supported. So you customer must update DIAdem if he would like to use it.

Greetings

Walter
