Banner And Coverpage Formatting Characters

Banner Characters

 

A banner string may consist of any of three parts : a left-justified portion, a center-justified portion , and a right-justified portion. Each part is separated by a vertical bar ( ‘|’ ). The banner string may be of any length, however, only one line of text will appear at the top of a fax. You may insert format characters into the banner string in order to include some information concerning the fax, see the description of format characters below. If the fax banner is empty then no fax banner will be sent.

 

The banner string has a limit of 64k, a great deal more than would fit across a single page, and we do not limit the text in any given justification area. Therefore there is the potential that the center-justified portion could overwrite the left-justified portion and the right-justified portion could overwrite the both the left and center-justified portions. The user would not normally be aware of this situation because the banner is printed only on out going faxes.

 

Format Characters for Banners and Coverpages

 

The following strings are valid formatting characters for both the Coverpage Comments and the Banner string:

 

%d = date (dd-mmm-yyyy format, e.g. 03-Feb-1995)

%t = send time (24-hour format, e.g. 6:00pm = 18:00:00)

%p = total # of pages in the fax

%c = current page
