Sending Prescribe print controls via SWINCF


We are installing new Kyocera printers and we have a few important issues that we can solve, but not at the same time. We print sapscript and smartforms.

On one hand we need unicode print and we can have that if we use device type SWINCF and SAPSPrint.

on the other hand we have various requirements that requires use of print controls. For example we need to be able to control what output tray the print is delivered in. We kan have this if we send Kyocera Prescribe commands to the printer, but it only works if we use a printer specific device type. It works with Kyocera an HP device types, but we cannot make it work with SWINCF.

I think the key to solving the issues is to find a solution to pass Kyocera Prescribe commands to the printer defined with SWINCF.

We have already tried with various combinations of the flags in the print control, but so far no result. The print controls that works with the printer specific device type is like this:

In SAP spool hex view, we can see the print control in the right place, but when we look at the spool file on the printer server (windows), it seems that the prescribe command is send AFTER the actual the print instead of before the print.
