The print statement prints the database.


This statement has one parameter:

options – specifies the printing options. There are only two valid options: empty text ("") or the keyword dialog.

When the options parameter is the word, “dialog”, Panorama will pause the procedure and present the user with the standard Print dialog. This allows the user to select the number of copies, print quality, and any other options that may be available for the currently selected printer.

When the options parameter is empty text ("") Panorama simply uses whatever print options were used the last time this window was printed. (Note: Depending on the printer driver software your printer uses, some options may not be saved from print to print. These options will use default settings.)


The print statement prints all the selected records to the current printer. This has the same effect as choosing Print from the File menu. This example prints a report.
