Question / Problem: 

How to configure the Imprinter Settings in a KTA 7.4 or 7.5 Scan Create New Job Form

Answer / Solution: 

KTA can be configured to control the scanner's Imprinter settings.  This can be useful for storing the last-used Imprinter Counter value and using that value to seed the starting Imprinter Counter value in the next scanning session. 

 

To configure the Imprinter Settings in a Scan Create New Job Form:

  1. In Form Designer, open the Scan Create New Job form

  2. Click anywhere outside the form to switch to the Form Properties

  3. Click the Actions button

  4. Click + to add a new action

  5. In the Type field, select Same Page

  6. Name the action SetImprinterString

  7. In the Target field, click the Form Field button, drill down to the ScanControl form fields and drag the ScanControl.ImprinterString form field to the Target field.

  8. Type the desired imprinter string into the Source/Value field and click the + to add the setting to the Action.

  9. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterIndexDigits form field into the Target field.

  10. Set the Source/Value to the number of counter digits to imprint and click + to add the setting to the Action.

  11. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterIndexStep form field into the Target field.

  12. Set the Source/Value to 1 to increment the counter value by 1 per page and click + to add the setting to the Action.

  13. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterIndex form field into the Target field.

  14. Manually enter the counter start value into the Source/Value field, or drag a Process Variable, Global Variable, or Form Field where the starting Counter value is stored into the Source/Value field.  Click + to add the setting to the Action.

    Steps 15-22 invovle Imprinter settings that were added in KTA 7.5.0.5.  If KTA 7.5.0.4 or lower is installed, skip to step 23

  15. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterRotation form field (KTA 7.5.0.5 or higher) into the Target field.

  16. Set the Source/Value to 0, 90, 180, or 270 to tell the scanner which rotation to imprint each character on the page.  Click + to add the setting to the Action.

  17. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterUnits form field (KTA 7.5.0.5 or higher) into the Target field and set the Source/Value to 0 (for inches), 1 (for centimeters), 2 (for picas), 3 (for points), 4 (for twips), 5 f(or pixels), or 6 (for millimeters).

  18. Click + to add the setting to the Action.

  19. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterVerticalOffset form field (KTA 7.5.0.5 or higher) into the Target field.  Set the Source/Value to the number of units from the leading edge of the page to start imprinting.

  20. Click + to add the setting to the Action.

  21. Drag the ScanControl.ImprinterFontStyle form field (KTA 7.5.0.5 or higher) into the Target field and set the Source/Value to 1 (for normal), 8 (for large size), or 16 (for small size).  Add 2 (for bold) or 4 (for italic) to the size value to combine these settings if the TWAIN driver supports it.

  22. Click + to add the setting to the Action.

  23. Click OK and note that the SetImprinterString action appears in the list.

  24. Click the Designer button to return to the form

  25. Click the Gear icon to open the form's Extended Properties and select the Events tab

  26. Click the Actions button next to the OnScanFormLoaded Event Type.
