Hi,

I was wondering if we could silent print a pdf file using the OpenOffice's XPrintable interface. My goal is to print automatically some reports during the night without opening any frame.

(for information, I've check the ooReport project that is a reporting tool using OOo but I don't really need all of that... just the silent print..)

thanks a lot,
night

Hi night,

do you really need to print PDF? Actually OOo can export to PDF, so you might consider running OOo in server mode aka. invisible (see Developers Guide or search forums), load your documents and export them to PDF.

If you want to print you can load and print your documents in some kind of batch application to -> see document converter example in SDK.

Good luck.

Cheers
Harald

yes, true, I didn't think about that I was really focusing on PDF file but I can use a converter!

thanks!

Sometimes the solution is so simple that we cannot see it!
