|Also runs on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows Server|
HTMLPrint is a Windows printing utility that is intended for printing HTML and ASCII text Documents and image files; including files with the following file extensions:
.html, .txt, .png, .gif, .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .wmf and
Printing can be done in three different ways:
- Batching documents as retainable lists which can be automatically printed in document sequence of your choice.
- Printing HTML files from the command line. By sending the file or directory name to be printed as a command line parameter to HTMLPrint the file or HTML files inside a directory will be printed in an invisible fashion. Continue reading the text below to learn how to use the command line.
- Directory Monitoring. HTMLPrint runs in Windows Task Bar watching continuously a folder for incoming HTML (or image) documents and prints them.
HTMLPrint runs as a visible application only when it is started without passing any argument in the command-line. It cannot run as a service.
What is new in HTMLPrint 9.0?
- The license includes two different HTMLPrint versions: The version 9, which uses its own printing engine and the version 8 which uses Mozilla Foundation's XULRunner 1.9.1 (Firefox 3.5 engine) as printing engine.
- Anyone who purchases the version 9 will get the version 8 as well, for the same price.
- Both versions have different capabilities. Depending on the required printing job one or other of them may be used. Learn More.
- The HTML code to be printed can passed in the command line, without using any file.
See command line switches below.
- New options for printing headers/footers
- Many new command line switches.
- Improved Directory Printing options.
- Now HTMLPrint runs in the Task Bar when printing directories and file lists.
- To print all HTML files in a directory, and stop HTMLPrint after the files are printed, a directory name can be send in the command line.
- Can print multiple files without using lists. See Batch Printing Editor.
- The printing scale (from 10 to 500%) can be specified, either in the configuration file or in the command line.
Command line parameters usage
To print an HTML file from the Command Line pass the filename to be printed as a parameter, additional parameters can be added to configure the printing.
Bersoft HTML Print is designed to work with and be called by other software or at least, by a batch file, passing the HTML or TXT file name or an image filename (
GIF, JPEG, BMP, PNG,
EMF) to be printed as a parameter in the command line; a text file containing a list of files to be printed or a directory path can be passed in the
command line as well.
Printing lists or files incoming in a predefined directory (Directory Monitoring)
HTMLPrint can watch one or several folders for HTML documents or images and print them to a specified printer.
Alternatively, file lists can be predefined, saved and printed on schedule or just printed without saving anything.
Using Configuration files
Besides settings options through the command line, most options are set by using a configuration file. This file can be created by other applications or by using HTMLPrint File > Configuration File > Edit menu command, which opens a screen for setting all options in the configuration file.
Using HTML files as headers/footers
By including some special tags in the HTML file, HTML files may be printed as headers or footers or headers/footers can be predefined in the configuration file..
Footer/Header Tab to learn more about printing headers and footers.
If there are any errors
while printing files, the error messages will be logged to the
error_log.txt file, also HTMLPrint will return an error code to the calling application. Learn more.
