PrintPreview Grayscale

Postby mathgod » March 6th, 2008, 8:42 pm

This is just a suggestion for the next release of the PrintPreview component.

I would like a function that weights the grayscale algorithm to adjust darkness of the grayscale. I don't think making the grayscale lighter would be practical but making all colors black for printing may be useful. A developer could include a trackbar in the preview to allow the user to adjust darkness before printing.

Finally I improved Print Preview with your suggestion.

The GrayBrightness and GrayContrast properties give you the complete freedom to adjust darkness/lightness of grayscale pages.

Thank you, Kambiz. Your work is very much appreciated. =D> I will consider this new release to be my Christmas gift. I apologize if my mention of Christmas is offensive to some of the readers.

Thanks again,
Don

Typically those who claim to be offended by Christmas want an audience for their complaint. You never know if there is a rogue American on the board wanting to cause trouble. :lol: :lol: :lol: ... well... I'm glad nobody was offended... or trying to attract attention by pretending to be offended. :lol:

Yeah, I remembered, several years ago we had such a discussion in this forum too. Somebody was complaining why I said Happy Christmas. That's stupid! :lol:
