wxHtmlEasyPrinting problem with border size

Post by Bundy » Mon Sep 04, 2006 7:52 am


I need to print wxGrid content so I decide that the easiest way will be to make a string contains html file with this grid convert to a table. It was very easy. Problem shows when I needed to increment size of border. I try this

Code: Select all

<table border=5 style="border-collapse: collapse; border: 5px solid black" cellpadding=10 width=100%>
            <TD style="border: 3px solid">col1</td>
            <TD style="border: 3px solid">col2</td>
            <TD style="border: 3px solid">col3</td>
            <TD style="border: 3px solid">col4</td>
It allows me to create table with single border line (not double witch is default) and resize this line. On IE or Mozilla evrything is fine. Unfortunatly wxHtmlEasyPrinting don't recognize style="border-collapse: collapse; border: 5px solid black" or style="border: 3px solid"

So, anybody skip this problem? It is a single action so I accept any resolution, even wxMSW library code changing


p.s. My program need to work on Windows only

I don't use the wxHtmlEasyPrinting, but if it uses the same HTML parser as the wxHtmlWindow class, it only supports basic HTML (not all the tags, and no CSS).

You may have a look at wxMozilla or wxIE to have a better HTML support.
