FMP Version: FileMaker 7 and higher
Returns A Text Result
This function will return information about of the currently selected printer via the print selection in the computers operating system. This function will return different information based upon platform. For FileMaker users on Windows based machines, the function returns the printer name, driver name and printer port. For FileMaker users on Macintosh based machines, this function returns the IP address of the printer ( for networked printers ) and the printers name ( if specified ).
So if you are going to use this function in a mixed platform environment, you may need to nest the Get(PrinterName) function within the Get(SystemPlatform) function.
