Hello,

Can anyone please show me a step-by-step example on how to use the ActiveX component below in Delphi?
Raw Data Printer (http://www.vbgold.com)

I am very new to Delphi...so please assume absolutely no knowledge of importing / implementing / using a component in Delphi!

Thank you.

OK, thanks.
So we are looking at the same thing, I downloaded the Raw Data Printer Component. (Have some interest myself...)
I downloaded and installed the RawDataPrinter.msi
Open delphi.
Then go to Project>>Import Type Library
If you dont see the Raw Data Printer Component in the list then Click on Add to add it. The RawDataPrinter.dll will be located in "C:\Program Files\raw data printer" directory.
Once it is in the list; select it.
You will see in the Class Names that it says TPrinter. I dont like this as Delphi already has TPrinter class, so I rename it to TRDPrinter.
Then click on Install, select the Install into new package tab, call it RDPrinter, then click OK.
It will then load the package, Click yes to build and install.
You will then have the new component on the ActiveX tab on the component pallette. (You can now close the package)
Drag and drop the component onto a form to use.

Hope thats not to confusing.
