VPE.SetupPrinter() does not disable the window

Postby IDEAL Software Support » Thu Nov 25, 2004 5:23 pm

VPE.SetupPrinter() does not disable the window of our main application. I would have expected that it is disabled, because if the user pushes a second time onto the "Setup" button in our application, we call a second time VPE.SetupPrinter(). Because VPE is already executing the printer setup dialog, our application crashes. Why isn't the window of our main application disabled automatically?

Answer:
Because VPE fires events during the setup process to inform your application about the status of the setup, the main window of your application is not disabled by VPE. Solution: disable any GUI element which could cause that VPE.SetupPrinter() is called a second time while the printer setup dialog is shown or disable your application before calling VPE.SetupPrinter() and enable it after the call returns.
