- You understand how to write Word VBA macros and how to work with the Word VB Editor
- You have a print mode configured in Kappris called "Letter + Copy" that exists in the "Correspondence" category
- You already have a HideLogo macro of your own that will hide the logo
- You already have a ShowLogo macro of your own that will show the logo
- Using the Kappris Print Dialog in Word, test your "Letter + Copy" print mode in the "Correspondence" category and make sure it behaves exactly as you would expect.
- Edit the KapprisBeforeImprint event handler to add/remove the letter logo
- Edit the KapprisAfterPrint event handler to reinstate the letter logo
Open the KapprisWord (or KapprisInterwoven) template in Word and go to the Visual Basic editor.
Find the KapprisIntegration module in KapprisWord
Find the KapprisBeforeImprint event handler within the KapprisIntegration module
Edit the event handler to check the current imprint and see if it is using "Letterhead" stationery. If it is, the code should hide the logo. If it is not using "Letterhead" the code should show the logo.

Private Sub KapprisBeforeImprint(ByVal Kupris As Kupris.IKupris2, ByVal Job As KappSrvr.IJob, ByVal Index As Long, ByVal IndexWithinJob As Long, PrintNow As Boolean, CancelImprint As Boolean) 'Occurs after an imprint's parameters have been stored in the Job but before 'the imprint is printed 'Use the IndexWithinJob parameter to query the Job parameters for this imprint 'The Index parameter gives the index of this imprint in the whole print request 'Use PrintNow to get the imprint to be printed immediately after this event handler On Error Resume Next Dim FPPaper As String Dim OPPaper As String FPPaper = GetParamValue(Job, "First Page Tray Paper[" & IndexWithinJob & "]") OPPaper = GetParamValue(Job, "Other Pages Tray Paper[" & IndexWithinJob & "]") If (FPPaper = "Letterhead") Or (OPPaper = "Letterhead") Then PrintNow = True HideLogo Else ShowLogo End If On Error GoTo 0 End Sub
The Kupris argument can be used to get or set information about dialog behaviour.
The Job argument can be used to get or set finely detailed information about the whole print request. Job makes available many lists of named variant values used by Kappris.
This code queries two Job parameters: "First Page Tray Paper[n]" and "Other Pages Tray Paper[n]" to check if either is set to "Letterhead".
To do this it uses the GetParamValue helper function and the IndexWithinJob argument. The IndexWithinJob should always be used when trying to retrieve information about the imprint that is about to be printed.
On finding that Letterhead is in use for the current imprint, the event handler runs the HideLogo routine and sets PrintNow to true. PrintNow is used to force Kappris to print the current imprint immediately because the document must be printed in its current state.
On finding that Letterhead is not in use for the current imprint, the event handler runs the ShowLogo routine but does not force the current imprint to be printed immediately because Kappris will print it anyway after the last imprint has been processed.
Clearly this event handler makes assumptions about the print mode in use and the order of imprints.
