Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether escape sequences (code characters 0-31) are sent directly to the printer. This property is valid only when a passthrough method of printing, such as HP record mode or VT printer controller mode, is being used.


The default value is False.

False Escape sequences are converted to spaces.

True Reflection passes the escape sequences directly to the printer or the printer driver. If the current value of the BypassPrinterDriver property is False, escape sequences are sent to the currently selected printer driver. If BypassPrinterDriver is True, escape sequences are sent directly to the printer, bypassing Reflection and the printer driver.
