Printer Attribute Format

To specify a printer attribute entry in a GPD file, use the following format:

* AttributeName : AttributeValue

where AttributeName is a predefined name belonging to one of the attribute types, and AttributeValue is one of the GPD value types.

For example, the *ModelName attribute is used for specifying a text string that describes your printer hardware. To assign a value to this attribute, you could place the following line in your GPD file:

*ModelName: "Canon Bubble-Jet BJC-600"

All attribute names are predefined and are recognized by Unidrv's GPD parser.
