Examples

The following XML code example will run the IHV.exe program on the client computer


<?xml version="1.0" ?> 
  <asyncPrintUIRequest
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/print/asyncui/v1/request">
    <v1>
      <requestOpen>
        <balloonUI iconID="1" resourceDll="IHV.dll">
          <title stringID="1234" resourceDll="IHV.dll" />
          <body stringID="100" resourceDll="IHV.dll">
            <parameter stringID="<5>" />
            <parameter stringID="1002" resourceDll="IHV.dll" />
          </body>
        </balloonUI>
      </requestOpen>
    </v1>
  </asyncPrintUIRequest>


The following code example shows how to use the action element to pass data to a resource DLL.


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
   <asyncPrintUIRequest
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/print/asyncui/v1/request">
    <v1>
      <requestOpen>
        <balloonUI iconID="1" resourceDll="IHV.dll">
          <title stringID="1234" resourceDll="IHV.dll"/>
          <body stringID="100" resourceDll="IHV.dll">
            <parameter stringID="<5>" />
            <parameter stringID="1002" resourceDll="IHV.dll" />
          </body>
          <action dll="adc.dll" entrypoint="def" >
            IHV CDATA to pass into the resource DLL
          </action>
        </balloonUI>
      </requestOpen>
    </v1>
  </asyncPrintUIRequest>
