Re: Which would be better raster-xchange or image-xhcange?

Thanks for your help. We've purchased to licenses for Raster-XChange. I've integrated if with our VB 6.0 application. Now I need to do the same for our application in CodeGear (C++). Do you have an examples showing how to add the printer factory and printer class to a C++ project? In VB this was sim...

Re: Which would be better raster-xchange or image-xhcange?

John, What I meant was that I did not see a method to call to actually save what had been sent to Raster-XChange to a file. I've since been able to create a bitmap using Raster-Xchange from a short VB 6.0 program. I've attached my test project in a zip file. The program works, but was not able to ch...

Re: Which would be better raster-xchange or image-xhcange?

Thanks. I've looked at the raster exchange samples. Is there any way to print using the SDK without printing to a file first. The sample code prints a file using the SDK. What about printing DIRECTLY TO a file using the SDK?

Thanks again.

Re: Printing to PDF-XChange and saving output as bitmap

I did. There was still no text when using PDF-XChange. I substituted: HFONT hFont = CreateFont(39, 19, 0, 0, 400, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, ANSI_CHARSET, OUT_CHARACTER_PRECIS, CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, PROOF_QUALITY, FF_DONTCARE | DEFAULT_PITCH , "Arial"); HFONT hOldFont = (HFONT) SelectObject(hdcMem, hFont);...

Re: Printing to PDF-XChange and saving output as bitmap

Here is a VC++ 6.0 test project. It tries to draw a circle with the letters SFREP printed centered within the circle. It works with PDF995, but not with PDF-XChange. I've included the output files, 995.BMP and XCng.BMP, so you can see what I mean. If you need a PDF995 install, there is a free demo i...

Re: Printing to PDF-XChange and saving output as bitmap

What I've done with other printers is to: Open the printer: Get the document properties: Change the resolution to 150 DPI (both horizontal and vertical): Create a device context for the printer Create a memory device context compatible to the printer context Create a compatible bitmap and select it ...

Printing to PDF-XChange and saving output as bitmap

I have been trying to print to PDF-Xchange from within our application and then to save the printed output to a file as a bitmap. Lines and boxes drawn on the driver device context appear in the bitmap, but text does not. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks.
