Nice work, thanks for sharing!

I don't know if it's good place to ask my question:

Is it the way to print bitmap created in memory without saving it to temporary file?

I need to generate labels for range of goods with barcodes.

Friends of HMG

The Demonstration given to me in the archive printform.rar from a few sources looks like the answer to my printscreen need. However it always fails to compile with syntax errors at lines 65 67 77 79 149 151 153 155 and 157.

Has anyone else been successful?

Thanks

These are the new functions we have:

Code: Select all

New Functions:

OpenPrinterGetDC()             -->   hDC of the current Open Printer

OpenPrinterGetPageDC()         -->   hDC of the current Page being printed

And you can use the following BosTaurus function to draw a bitmap in memory to the PageDC as above.

Code: Select all

BT_DrawBitmap (hDC, Row, Col, Width, Height, Mode_Stretch, hBitmap)

Draws a bitmap in the Device Context (DC) specified.

hDC: is a handle to the device context.

Row, Col, Width, Height: specifies the size of the rectangle in pixels in the DC where you will draw the bitmap. For default: Row = 0, Col = 0, Width = BT_BitmapWidth(hBitmap), Height = BT_BitmapHeight(hBitmap).

Mode_Stretch: sets the mode as the bitmap is adjusts (is stretches or compresses) in the specified rectangle in the DC, it is one of the constants: BT_SCALE, BT_STRETCH or BT_COPY (defined in BosTaurus.CH).

hBitmap: is a handle to the bitmap.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Hi Bill

Please don't worry, here you are between friends :arrow:

Probably this is week end and orijinal author of program (our Dear Friend Dave) not have enough spear time.

Here slightly modified to working version of orijinal program:

Result:
PF_Result.JPG
PF_Result.JPG (41.48 KiB) Viewed 5193 times
Source:
PrintFormSource.zip
(48.45 KiB) Downloaded 274 times
Executable:
PrintFormExe.zip
(1.51 MiB) Downloaded 279 times
Please note that:

- There is more points to optimize in this program
- This program is quite old and include some obsolete methods and functions
- Now we have more practical and short facilities ( Bostaurus library: BT_* functions )

So it's possible more and more adequate and short ways to achieve print / save images.

Happy HMG'ing :D
