open printing

open printing [with dialog]

The open printing command begins a print job. It uses the current settings from the Print Stack dialog box.

If you specify the with dialog option, HyperCard displays the Print Stack dialog box, and the user can choose new settings. HyperCard sets the result to Cancel if the user clicks Cancel; otherwise, it sets the result to empty.

You must use the close printing command to end a print job begun with open printing.
