Print bitmap in OnPrint()

I'm drawing some bitmaps in my document's view. It draws properly in print preview (OnPrint method), but then it doesn't print on the paper.
Any ideas?

Could you provide your printing code?

This is a piece of OnPrint method. I'm using MM_TWIPS to position the bitmap (RECT r)
. . .
if(LoadBMPImage(bmpFileName, bitmap, NULL))
      {
            // Create a compatible memory DC
            CDC memDC;
            memDC.CreateCompatibleDC( pDC );
            memDC.SetMapMode(MM_TEXT);
            memDC.SelectObject( &bitmap );


            CDC sysDC;
            sysDC.CreateCompatibleDC(NULL);
            sysDC.SetMapMode(MM_TEXT);
            int srat_x = sysDC.GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSX);
            int srat_y = sysDC.GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSY);


            BITMAP bm;
            bitmap.GetBitmap( &bm );
            SIZE sz, szr;
            sz.cx = r.left;
            sz.cy = -r.top;
            szr.cx = r.right - r.left;
            szr.cy = abs(r.bottom - r.top);


            pDC->LPtoDP(&sz);
            pDC->LPtoDP(&szr);
            CSize size2;
            int rat_x = pDC->GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSX);
            int rat_y = pDC->GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSY);
            size2.cx = bm.bmWidth * rat_x / srat_x;
            size2.cy = bm.bmHeight * rat_y / srat_y;

            CSize size ( bm.bmWidth, bm.bmHeight );
            
            memDC.DPtoLP ( &size );

                  
            pDC->SetMapMode(MM_TEXT);

            if(fmsgraph->m_FitToBorder)
                  pDC->StretchBlt(sz.cx, sz.cy, szr.cx, szr.cy, &memDC, 0, 0, size.cx, size.cy, SRCCOPY);
            else
                  pDC->StretchBlt(sz.cx, sz.cy, size2.cx, size2.cy, &memDC, 0, 0, size.cx, size.cy, SRCCOPY);
            pDC->SetMapMode(MM_TWIPS);
      }

Check if your printer supports StretchBlt with GetDeviceCaps with RASTERCAPS and RC_STRETCHBLT.

I've tried it already, but it's OK ((pDC->GetDeviceCaps(RASTERCAPS) & RC_STRETCHBLT) != 0)
It seems weird to me because in PrintPreview it works fine.

I think your problem is that you create memory DC compatible with printer DC. Prenter DC if you are using b/w printer has only two colors so error probably occurs when you try to select bitmap into memory DC. You should create 24 bit DIB. In this case no palette is needed and printer performs the best dithering. To set DIB bits to printer DC use StretchDIBits function.

Thanks, Galkin. It was that.
