Well, ppl, I still can't get an Idea of how to PRINT the
contents of my OLE Object (OLEContainer)... There are no any methods which could I use for printing or hsndling the data in Container.... :(
  Thanks in progress, I've handed over all the points I had!

A colleague informs me that you need to use 'verbs'.

Verbs are methods of the Ole object which can be called, to do common functions, like print, etc.  Working with OLE is a complete nightmare if you're trying to write any sort of sensible, robust application,and you would probably do better to avoid it.  Definitely easier to rewrite your application than to get OLE to work properly.  Other than that i'm afraid I dont know any more.  Good Luck though, didnt mean to send out such a negative comment.

Said expert friend doesnt know - he copied it to a bitmap and printed that, although it's a bad solution as you lose resolution. Ole is the work of the Devil!

Hmm, looks like something interesting... A new way of solving The PROBLEM, eh? ;) So, If you only could explain how to Save those damned OLE contains to Bitmap.... I'll regard it as an answer...

 Thanks in progress,

Commented:
To be able to copy from your ole container to a bitmap in code, you will need to get hold of the ole container canvas, or at least a handle to it (canvas otherwise known as device context), and then you can do a brushcopy or stretchdraw.  Give this a go, if you cant get hold of it then get back to me - lets get this sorted today - provinding my server decides to let me actually use the net today.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Please, send me your e-mail to gw@paul.cclu.lv
(gw - Game Wizard ;) So I could ask you about that question

 SAD, but when I've last posted this question one dude answered me, but the same way - no certain functions to use, no procedures or Properties of an object... Only foggy stories about OLE's canvas or contents... :( As I've already said, I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY SIGNS OF A PROPERTY THAT SHOULD HOLD THE CONTENTS OF OLE OBJECT! :((( So I can't brush them or what did you mean...
   Thanks for those long diskussions, I'll grade them, hoping you'll try to describe me those methods of printing...
