Printing in Windows XP
Posted on 2004-10-27
Don't know if this is the right area or not so apologies in advance if its not.
My problem is that I have developed a VB app which displays maps and allows people to add lines for information to the maps. These lines can be of any style, eg solid or dotted. The maps can then be printed, however, due to some lines being light coloured they appear feint and are therefore 'thickened' to allow then to appear clearer on teh print. When printed in any windows OS up to 2K they printed as expected, eg solid or dotted. However, with XP all 'thickened' lines are printed solid.
The maps are drawn to the VB printer object from the view control.
I have also tried changing printer drivers but still doesn't make any difference.
Does anybody know what the problem is or if there is a solution. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
