    Visual Basic VBA ID for Letterhead Media (Ricoh MP C 3501)

    Hi folks,

    a customer need to have the Visual Basic (VBA) ID for Letterhead Media on a Ricoh MP C 3501 PCL 5c. It's no Problem to get the Tray ID (Tray 3 = 260), but we need to have the ID for Letterhead Media. It's important to use the ID because of simplex/duplex printing. The ID for preprinted or prepunched media will help as well.

    It's not possible to get the ID from a Ricoh printerdriver, we've got the ID from a HP driver, but it doesn't work with Ricoh devices.

    Any suggestion is welcome.

    Media Select (Alphanumeric ID Command)
    Format: ESC & n # W 100[string]
    Hex: 1B 26 6E # 57 64[string] (# is specified in text)
    Function: Assigns an ID string to the media type.
    Description: (1) Media selection is one function of the Alphanumeric ID Commands.

    By setting operation = 100, it is possible to assign string IDs to media types. Note: The table below summarizes the operation values.
