Re: How can I create an rtf file?

This example prints RTF text to the default printer in a WYSIWYG format. AFAICT without spending more time on it than I have, it works correctly. I tested it with several Word documents that contained multiple different fonts, bullets, symbols, paragraphs, etc, copied from Word and pasted into the ...

Your suggestion bears merit. I found a web site that gives some formatting examples and I will explore that option further.

Thanks.

Re: How can I create an rtf file?

Thanks for the example. My application is distributed commercially, and I had hoped that I could easily solve the need to to print through Windows printer drivers by first printing the output to an .rtf file, and then issue a command line call to Wordpad to print the document. Wordpad is endemic in ...

Re: How can I create an rtf file?

After much experimentation, I have discovered that Wordpad is not a very good command line print client for *.rtf documents. The main drawback is the fact that unlike MS Word (and other word processing programs), Wordpad does not respect .rtf page formatting codes. It's page size, margins, etc, are ...

Re: How can I create an rtf file?

Thanks for the various suggestions. My application is written primarily with QB compatible code. It was born out of the DOS days, but it still runs fine in console mode in a variety of Windows versions. However, it knows nothing of Windows printers. So if writing a simple .rtf file and then shelling...

Re: How can I create an rtf file?

I looked at the link, and all I can say is "WOW"! Microsoft's rtf document specifications are a bit overwhelming to say the least. I posted this question on another forum and received a suggestion to create some text examples in Wordpad, save the document as .rtf, and open it in Notepad to...

How can I create an rtf file?

I have an application that can print formatted output to printers supporting IBM Proprinter, Epson or HP PCL emulation. The problem is that more and more printers these days do not support any of these emulations...they are designed to use Windows printer drivers. So it occurred to me that if I coul...

Thanks for your advice, but I have found that FBEdit works just fine on Windows ME. It's a bit different than FBIde in appearance, but it seems work just as well.

Re: Problem running FBIde in Windows ME

counting_pine: Thanks for the explanation...now it makes sense. In my opinion, this is an example of error messages that are too vague to be useful for the average user. This may sound stupid, but I thought that "IsHungAppWindow" referred to the application being "hung" because i...

Re: Problem running FBIde in Windows ME

I found the text "IsHungAppWindow" embedded in the FbIdeFix.dll included with FBIde 0.4.6r4 that I installed on my Win ME computer. I still don't understand the significance of the part of the original error message stating "The FBIDEFIX.DLL file is linked to missing export USER32.DLL...

Re: Problem running FBIde in Windows ME

MichaelW: I don't know where the "IsHungAppWindow" comes from in portion of the error that pops up when I try to run FBIde in Windows ME. It certainly is something I'm not trying to use. I could not find that text in the ME version of USER32.DLL, so it must be coming from the FBIDEFIX.DLL ...

Problem running FBIde in Windows ME

I have a lot of QB source code on my Windows ME computer that I intend to convert to FB executeables. I recently installed FB and FBIde on that computer, but when I went to run FBIde I got the following error: "The FBIDEFIX.DLL file is linked to missing export USER32.DLL:IsHungAppWindow" H...

Re: Correct Syntax for Inline ASM?

32bit DOS? Never heard of it...can you explain further? My compiled QB application works on all platforms of 32bit Windows. In fact, it runs in a "window" on the Windows Desktop. Unfortunately, since compiled QB code is 16bit, it obviously won't run on the 64bit versions of Windows without...
