  • COLOR keyword in DDS

    Haven't played with COLOR in a few years, but the DDS reference says "COLOR is valid on IPDS and IPDS AFP(*YES) printers." Can you provide the type/model of the printer, and the *DEVD and *OUTQ definitions?

    Be careful. The COLOR keyword was originally intended for a dot matrix printer with a multi-colored ribbon. The use of the COLOR keyword today is still restricted to a miniscule number of printers. It is possible to create a workstation definition that emulates one of the listed printers. AFP(*YES) on its own will most likely not work. Dave

      COLOR keyword in DDS

      I need to print color on one line and a shaded bar (not a shaded box) on another. The shaded bar need to have bigger font in it. I am using DDS to generate the *PRTF with devtype(*AFPDS) I am sucessful in getting the shaded bar by using OVERLAY and bigger font by using FNTCHRSET to work but just cannot get the COLOR to come out. The printer has IPDS chip installed. I read that the COLOR keyword does not work with *AFPDS. so I tried changing it to *IPDS, but then it said FNTCHRSET not valid. does anyone know how to get the COLOR keyword to work with shaded overlay ? many thanks!

        Dale, thank you so much for responding. Today we were able to get COLOR and FNTCHRSET keyword to work together with the following: 1. compile or override the *PRTF in *AFPDS 2. printer must have IPDS chip installed and set to device type *IPDS and with AFP(*YES)

          This field-level keyword specifies the color of a field on a color display (3179, 3197 Models C1 and C2, 3477 Model FC, 3486, 3487 Model HC, 3488 4 or 5292 Color Display Stations only). This keyword is ignored if it is selected for a field displayed on monochrome display stations. You can specify one parameter value for the COLOR keyword
