Printing from CFormView or CDialog based applications
Posted on 2004-03-30
Hello everybody and I'd appreciate your help, suggestions, and/or comments on the following:
I have a viewform-based application and I need to do some printing. I don't need to print the whole form, but just some area, enclosed withing a CRect object, where I'm doing some text and graphical output. I used CFromView expecting to utilize OnPrint and other functions provided by MFC, but as far as I understand I need to override this function in order to print anything... and I'm not sure how. I found a source on Code Guru site but unfortunatelly it doesn't work for me... I have a print view, which I actually don't need, and a printer just spits out my sheets of paper without printing anything :((
I would appreciate your suggestions.
