Tprintpreview, TThumbnailPreview and black frame.

Postby Marmar » March 21st, 2007, 3:37 am

Hi
I'm new here:) Last time i downloaded this components from torry pages and I have two questions about what I see in demo programs.

1. Can I print on all for example a4 area or only on bounds that this components show (also on demo programs)
2. What is the white area on TThumbnailPreview and Tprintpreview on a form? Is it a paper or paper and sth? And what is the black frame near (inside) the bouns in both of these component showing pages? I see one "dotted" frame which means the real boundary of printing area (not all white rectangle) and the second black frame and I don't know what is it? And must it be shown all the time?

Please answer the most simple as you can because of my pour english:)
Thank you in advance.

I've just found out the reason of this black frame . It's in program code drawn not in component code. That'ok:)
But still waiting my second question connected with the printable area. Is it possible to print on all paper area or only on this bounded with dotted frame and why this dotted frame deppends on the unit kind. I don't undertand it. Please explain it as simple as possible.

The printable area depends on the printer. TPrintPreview just provides the bounding rectangle of the printable area and do not force you to create pages inside this bound.

Well. So I can print outside of this bounded (dotted) area? Do I understand good? If so, what is this bounded area for?

Haven't you read the text above?

It's for showing you, and user what part can be printed because of hardware limitations.
