how available is EnableDsUiOnly..
Hard to say. So far it seems that Kodak supports it, Hp does in their commercial drivers but not the standard ones (HPs commercial drivers on the Cd, they just aren’t the default) Epson doesn’t seem to support it, Canon looks like they do but I’ve never tested a Canon, FUJITSU supports it and funny enough some people say that hacking the CustomDsData by hand is the only way to take advantage of some of their features…
When people ask me if deviceXY2 supports EnableDsUiOnly I go over to Dosadi’s archive of twister reports looking for their model or a close match on the model#. Last time I checked Dosadi had 88 reports on hand. No, I don’t have the weblink to their archive on hand I always google for:
Dosadi twister report archive
and I get it within a click or two.
My process is slightly different than what you describe, but you seem to be getting the idea.
I make the users predefine their scanning profiles. I save the CustomDsData along with some extra stuff (like whether they want it converted to Multipage Tiff or pdf, Where they want the image saved when it is done, etc..)
Then later they can choose which profile they want to run.
And if their device doesn’t seem to support EnableDsUiOnly I tell them to get one that does.
There are too many fun projects and too few hours to worry about devices that make life hard(er).
