The Application Programming Interface (API) built into the SD/CD/CE Series Card Printer Windows driver (referred to as “the driver”) provides two means for your application to control card personalization operations using the driver. Both use built-in Windows operating system interfaces. One means of control is the use of the driver Print Ticket. Print Ticket is a required feature of any driver using the XML Paper Specification (XPS) print driver architecture introduced with Windows Vista (and available on Windows XP when the XPS Essentials Pack is installed). Through the Print Ticket, your application can override the driver’s printing preferences on a job-by-job basis. The other means of control is the use of the Windows IBiDiSpl interface. The IBiDiSpl interface is the Microsoft preferred API for printer control. Using the IBiDiSpl interface, your application places the driver in “interactive mode” where the application has fine-grained job control and can access data on the card during the card personalization process.
