The canvas is the same. There are a couple of extra features at the bitmap level but nothing that will stop your code from compiling or working

lol, maybe i wanna elaborate on the subject a bit...
I moved a unit to D5 from D3 - and now I've got a problem..I've got 2 classes and the later inherits from the first

the first declaration
  TPreviewCanvas = Class(TObject)
  .....
  Public
    Procedure AnotherPage; Virtual;
  .....
 
The later class,

  TPrnCanvas = Class(TPreviewCanvas)
  ....
  Public
    Procedure AnotherPage; Override;
  ....

What happens in D5 when you run this ? Nothing the procedure Another does never execute, eventhough its called...any ideas ?

garizpe,

Var
  vc : TPrnCanvas;
Begin
  With vc do
  Begin

    OnPageTop        := NIL; // executes
    OnPageBottom     := NIL; // executes
    AnotherPage;  // DOES NOT EXECUTE!!
    SetFontSize(20);
    Font.Style := [fsBold];
  End;


Really weird...!!

What is AnotherPage supposed to be doing? and why are you using vc without creating it first?

I'll pretend that I actually proposed that as an answer rather than as a general stab in the dark. Thanks
