Hi,

What is the easiest way to print to contents of a memo-box (TMemo)?
When using a TRichEdit, you can use RichEdit1.Print('name'). However, this seems not to work with the TMemo component.

Thanx for helpin'

I think this will work:

uses ...,Printers;

procedure PrintMemo(amemo:Tmemo);
var prf:TextFile;
begin
     AssignPrn(prf);
     Rewrite(prf);
     writeln(prf,amemo.Lines.Text);
     System.CloseFile(prf);
end;

I found this out only last week:

procedure TForm1.Print1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   i, iLine: Integer;
begin
     iLine := 0;
     If Not (PrintDialog.Execute) then Exit;

     Printer.BeginDoc;
     Try
     For i := 0 to Memo1.Lines.Count - 1 Do
     Begin
          {Font.Height is calculated as -Font.Size * 72 / Font.PixelsPerInch
          which returns a negative number, so Abs() is applied to the Height to
          make it a non-negative value. We add 12 just to get the spacing right}
          Printer.Canvas.TextOut(0, iLine, Memo1.Lines[i]);
          iLine := iLine + Abs(Printer.Canvas.Font.Height) + 12;
          If (iLine >= Printer.PageHeight) then Printer.NewPage;
     End;

     Finally
     Printer.EndDoc;
     End; {Try..Finally}
end;

I guess both solutions provide me with the same results, however, fva brought me the most simple solution I was looking for. Thank you!
