Print Monitor

Eliminate Programming

Print MonitorNo source code? No programming resources? No problem.

What could be easier than telling MarkMagic to automatically run a MarkMagic Job when a spooled file appears in an Output Queue or when a record is added to a file? Print Monitor is ideal if you have no source code available, or you don't have the time or resources to change source programs. The powerful MarkMagic Print Monitor Option watches output queues for spool files, and watches physical files for added records. Files that meet user-defined criteria can be automatically printed.


Print Monitor Benefits

Print Monitor works without source code to print labels and forms. First, design a label or form. Then create a MarkMagic Job to print the label or form. Last, create a Print Monitor to watch an output queue for spool files or a physical file for added records. You can create as many Print Monitors as you need, each assigned to perform a specific task. Monitors can be triggered by combining various spool file attributes such as: File Name, Output Queue and Libary, User, User Data, Form Type, or Program and Library.

When files or records are added that meet the conditions you specified in the monitor, the associated MarkMagic Job automatically runs. You can use Print Monitor with any application, and it requires no programming to achieve sophisticated results. No source code changes are required whatsoever.

Print Monitor - Value

Using the MarkMagic Print Monitor Option is the fastest, easiest way to integrate labels, RFID tags, or forms into your applications. You can concentrate on designing documents that fit your business requirements, without worrying about any programming at all.
