View Full Version : WSCST enlarge left border. HOW
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
I'm printing (using V4R3)with LPR to an HP5SI compatible printer (actually an OCE3165 with an OS2 printserver). The output is good but there is almost no whitespace (border) at the left side. I want to enlarge the left border using WSCST but don't now the right tag to modify. There ate tags like ?verrmov? and ?hormov? Also the ?intprt? tag could be a solution but everything i chance there is totally no change to my output. I found WSCST difficult to understand, what language are they talking there. Is it PCL or PJL or what? Where can i find detailed information? The redbooks stops where it becomes interesting. Regards Bob

If you go to this web site http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/pubs/pdfs/redbooks/gg244389.pdf Chapter 6 of this manual has got a detail information on the transform table. Regards, Melinda

You will find a lot of information about host print transform in the manual SC41-5605-00. I didn't find this on the WEB but its on the softcopy library CD that comes with the operating system. Anyway, I am trying to move text horizontally (SCS and AFPDS)with the help of HPT but haven't succeeded so far. I tried it with the tags for noprintable border and horizontal absolute and relative move. Does anybody has any hint for me?

I think you should modify the :NOPRTBDR tag, which specifies the unprintable area. We have some 210-column splfs that print landscape, and the last few columns were being cut off on the right, with plenty of extra whitespace on the left. So I modified the tag to look like this: :NOPRTBDR OPTION=LEFT ORIENT=LANDSCAPE DATA = 576. Originally, the DATA was 288. Making it larger moved the output to the left (seems counterintuitive). So to move your data to the right, you could specify a lesser value. For Portrait, the default tag is :NOPRTBDR OPTION=LEFT ORIENT=PORTRAIT DATA = 360. so you could change the DATA to 180, recompile the WSCST, end the writer, vary the device description off then on (to "reload" the wscst), restart the writer, and see what happens. My examples are drawn from the retrieved WSCST for HP LaserJet printers (I think they're mostly the same as regards borders).
