Printing, Reports, and Printers

Hi folks,

In other threads we have been discussing the possibilities and power of doing our own printing with .NET in X# code, and customising a class library to do our own 'bidding' - (whatever we wish to do).

Well, so far I have re-discovered my latest 'Help and Manual' file for 'ClickStartRnP' - where R stands for Reports and P stands for Printing.

Since many folders in this document have contents, I hope to show Dick (and all) that the CHM file is a viable option to distribute through 'OneDrive' - here is my link :-

1drv.ms/f/s!AiCBl-gBWjY9g9JJ_axOmnVJX5_Y9Q

You should get two files to work with, a CHM one and a much larger PDF.

Please give them both a try - BUT - do remember that this was produced with, and for, the Vulcan compiler at the time, dated a few months before the 'DevFest 2009' event.

This link and the images posted below, are just to inform you of the future possibilities - things for after the Cologne Conference in a couple of weeks time - yes, two weeks yesterday we start. I will completely re-write the Print Class Library in X# as well as completely refreshing the contents of the 'ClickStartRnP' help notes.

Here is a peak preview :-



And now the report page nicely laid out and coloured etc. :-



Hope this interests a few :woohoo:

Oh dear guys,

Looks like Dick was right about the CHM via 'OneDrive'. The PDF for 'RnP' is okay however.

I could have sworn that recently we had a working trial of a CHM up-down load.

Either I am getting older, or I am doing too much - time for lunch I feel :whistle:

On the file icons I now get 'Owner' and previously from the Forum post link I got 'Can View'.

What are you guys seeing - as it is not possible for an Owner of OD to do a clean test as if he/she was a distant user.

Please help,
phil.

Phil,
Cannot view any online, but both gave me a download option. The CHM only have sections, no details, but I assume from your previous message this is how it should be. The PDF give me a preview of the first page and then to Open or Save if I click on it.

Thanks,

Dick is right.

I wonder if we can get away with a RARed version of the same CHM file !?

I will give it a go and send you an email.

Cheers,
Phil.
