The method is not implemented.
IPrintOemUni::SendFontCmd method is used for selecting device fonts on printers that do not recognize the PCL, CAPSL, or PPDS-formatted font commands supported by Unidrv. Its purpose is to allow a rendering plug-in to modify the font selection command that is specified in the font's .ufm (Unidrv Font Metrics) file. (To see how the command is stored, refer to the description of .ufm file's UNIDRVINFO structure.) If the command needs to be modified before being sent to the printer, you should implement the
The method receives the command string in the FINVOCATION structure pointed to by pFInv. Typically, the string contains variables for which values must be supplied. For example, the following font selection command requires that #FontHeight and #FontWidth be replaced with numeric values:
Current values for the font height and width can be obtained by calling UNIFONTOBJ_GetInfo to read Unidrv's standard variables.
IPrintOemUni::SendFontCmd method called, it must send the command string to the printer by calling IPrintOemDriverUni::DrvWriteSpoolBuf.
IPrintOemUni::SendFontCmd method is optional. If a rendering plug-in implements this method, the plug-in's IPrintOemUni::GetImplementedMethod method must return S_OK when it receives "SendFontCmd" as input.
