Creating a tmetafilecanvas and "inherit" the image already drawn on the tmetafile
Posted on 2003-12-10
I have a list of TMetafiles with images already drawn on them. Now I need to be able to create a TMetafilecanvas for a specific metafile in the list, and the draw on top of the image already on the metafile.
My list is a tobjectlist and the code i have so far is
mymetacanvas := tmetafilecanvas.create(tmetafile(mymetafilelist[index]),printer.handle);
then some drawing
when I use this code I get the drwaing done is this last bit of code shown just fine, but the image I had drawn previosly is gone.
What to do ?
