Hi fellows,
Would there be a way to monitor a dot matrix printer? like throwing an exception when a problem come up?
Let me try to explain the scene. I've got to print a list of objects(one object per page) and change the status attribute as 'printed'. It's working well so far but what if i need to save these objects as 'printed' ONLY if that page was really printed with success cos even if for somehow a problem come up like, no paper in tray and so on, That object will be saved as printed but it wasn't printed properly.
Was I clear?
Thanks in advance
