Hi, you might answer this question in "How to print a StringGrid", where you will get 200 pts

I'm doing some textout to the printer.canvas, and having trouble specifing the y-offset for the next line. I'm printing from a stringgrid, and I thought that the rowheight could be the y-offset but on the printer.canvas this value must be around 2.5 larger or the lines are drawed on top of each other.
How to I get this const to multiply with stringgrid.rowheight, I sure it changes from printer to printer, depending on the paper and printer resolution.

Hi koger,

As I understand your question, then your looking for the difference of pixels between screen and printer? Correct?

If so, this should be a solution :

XPixelsPerInch := GetDeviceCaps(Printer.Handle, LOGPIXELSX);
YPixelsPerInch := GetDeviceCaps(Printer.Handle, LOGPIXELSY);

And screen.PixelsPerInch gives you the pixels per inch of your screen...

so devide these two and you get your constant...

or am I wrong?

Regards, Zif.
