Print problem

Post by jab121 » Sun Apr 03, 2005 10:51 am

Im using wxGTK 2.4.2

In my wxPrintout class I have filled in GetPageInfo(..) with a system that works out the number of pages I will need.

This uses GetPPIScreen(..) and GetPPIPrinter(..), but these functions just return 0.

When I come to draw my graphics in OnPrintPage(..) these functions work properly.
What is the cause of this?

Thanks, James



ps. Is this something to do with Patch 781346? (see extract below). Sourceforge claims that this patch is MSW specific, so surely, I can't use it on wxGTK anyway?

(EXTRACT FROM DOCUMENTATION ON wxPrintout)
"In wxWindows 2.4, this function is called after GetPageInfo is called, which is not ideal. In wxWindows 2.5, the function is correctly called before GetPageInfo is called. Please see Patch 781346 on SourceForge for a backport of this fix"
