Here's a simple example (copy/paste & place 2 buttons on the form...):

procedure CmPerPixel(canvas:TCanvas; var xcmpp,ycmpp: Real);
var h:HDC;
    hres,vres,hsiz,vsiz:integer;
begin
   h:=canvas.handle;
   hres := GetDeviceCaps(h,HORZRES);   {display width in pixels}
   vres := GetDeviceCaps(h,VERTRES);   {display height in pixels}
   hsiz := GetDeviceCaps(h,HORZSIZE);  {display width in mm}
   vsiz := GetDeviceCaps(h,VERTSIZE);  {display height in mm}
   xcmpp := hsiz/hres*0.1;
   ycmpp := vsiz/vres*0.1;
end;


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var xcmpp,ycmpp: Real; // pixel-> cm
begin
   CmPerPixel(Form1.Canvas, xcmpp,ycmpp);
   Caption:='100 pixels are '+FloatToStr(xcmpp*100)+' cm wide and '+FloatToStr(ycmpp*100)+' cm high';
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var xcmpp,ycmpp: Real; // cm -> pixel
begin
   CmPerPixel(Form1.Canvas, xcmpp,ycmpp);
   Caption:='3 cm are '+FloatToStr(1/xcmpp*3)+' pixels wide and '+FloatToStr(1/ycmpp*3)+' pixels high';
end;

hi,

try this function:

function GetPixelCM(pixelcount : integer) : extended;
begin
 // 1 inch = 2,54 cm
 Result := (2.54 / Screen.PixelsPerInch) * pixelCount;
end;

Bugroger i try to use your code because its easy..

Here is my code ;

MyPrinter = class
  function PixelToCM(pixelcount : integer):extended ;
  function CMToPixel(cm : extended):extended ;
end ;

function MyPrinter.CMToPixel(cm: extended):extended;
begin
  { i wrote }
  Result := (cm / 2.54) * Screen.PixelsPerInch ;
end;

function MyPrinter.PixelToCM(pixelcount: integer):extended;
begin
  { inch = 2,54 cm bugroger wrote }
  Result := (2.54 / Screen.PixelsPerInch) * pixelCount ;
end;
---------------------------------------------------------
when i try to use like these ;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  vconv : TTinaPrinter ;
begin
  vconv := TTinaPrinter.Create ;
  Edit1.Text := Floattostr(vconv.PixelToCM(strtoint(Edit1.Text))) ;

end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  vconv : TTinaPrinter ;
begin
  vconv := TTinaPrinter.Create ;
  Edit1.Text := Floattostr(vconv.CMToPixel(strtofloat(Edit1.Text))) ;

end;
---------------------------------------------------------
problem occurs some times..for example try to calculate 5 first with button1 then use button2 for turn to 5 again but it will be 5,00000000000001.

  Can you give me the real value of inch/cm ? or different ssolution .

I had solve the problem and the real rate must be 2.5400181214134702506795530051344 .

hi Mozzak

this occurs because of rounding in FloatToStr
if you convert the extended value
to string and back.

now it should work! I have used FloatToStrF instead
of FloatToStr

Have a look to Button3Click.
If you don't convert the extended value (test)
to string and back it works fine!


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 vconv : MyPrinter;
begin
 vconv := MyPrinter.Create ;
 Edit1.Text := FloatToStrF(vconv.PixelToCM(strtoInt(Edit1.Text)), ffGeneral, 20, 0) ;
 vconv.Free;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 vconv : MyPrinter;
begin
 vconv := MyPrinter.Create ;
 Edit1.Text := FloattostrF(vconv.CMToPixel(strtofloat(Edit1.Text)), ffGeneral, 5,0) ;
 vconv.Free;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 vconv : MyPrinter;
 test : extended;

begin
 vconv := MyPrinter.Create ;
 test := vconv.PixelToCM(strtoInt(Edit1.Text));
 Edit1.Text := Floattostr(vconv.CMToPixel(test));
 vconv.Free;
end;


Hope this solve your problems
