PrintPreview feature suggestion

Postby aspence » July 18th, 2004, 9:30 am

As if you aren't busy enough :)

I thought I might suggest the future possibility of providing a mechanism by which some things drawn to a page only appear in the preview and are not printed. Thanks.

I can't see the use of it...

Well, I would use it to display margin settings or to highlight the printable area of the page for the current printer. I'm sure there are other uses as well.

It's easy to implement. I'll do it as soon as finding a free time.

It's done!

The following items are added to the component's interface:
  • property: PrinterPageBounds
  • property: Annotation
  • method: UpdateAnnotation
  • event: OnAnnotation
Please see General Demo for the sample.

Cheers,

What can I say but wow!, and thank you!

If I ever get the program I'm working on to a releasable stage, I'll surely send you a copy :)
