When I attempt to run it, I get a compile failure: Command executed: "C:\FreeBasic\fbc.exe" "C:\FreeBasic\NSCHOOL\FBWinPrint.bas" -lang qb Compiler output: C:/FreeBasic/inc/win/windef.bi(61) er...

Compiler Blowup fixed moving to printer issue

Do any of you fine readers know if there is a tutorial on driving print using LPRINT? Specifically, I want to be able to print centered text in a higher Font (eg header) to the default printer. In QB, I could sent the escape characters when the printer was hard connected to the LPT1 port. In XP, not...

Compiler Blowup resolved

Gentlemen, thank you all!

I got the new compiler to run and found that I had left in a DEF_PROC statement (used in BB4W BASIC). Took it out and the compile went fine.

Now I have to resolve some printer issues, but that is for another time!

Thanks, again!

Compiler Blowup

I could get nothing to work, (sad because my old environment was working fine) so I had to rip out all Free Basic and FBIDE. Then I single stepped the install of the FBIDE followed by the latest Beta of FB. Then, I decided to follow the advice to set switches, but I cannot find any place in the IDE ...

jevans4949: Thanks for the note. Yes, I guess I am interested in the RTF 'wrapper'. I had hoped that moving to FB which uses the system default printer would have included some method of controlling font characteristics. LF, CF, etc are hardware characteristics and another discussion. So, if Word ca...

Print Font

Michael, What do I 'Open'? Lprint just drives a line to the default printer, does it not? I looked for support in the documentation at http://www.wildgardenseed.com/RQDP/FreeBasic/index.html and it just says not supported.. I looked at the documentation at http://www.freebasic.net/wiki/wikka.php?wak...

Printer now working

MichaelW, Thanks for the tip. I read the HP note and then looked at the configuration of the printer. It turns out that port LPT1 had both the LaserJet 5 AND a Quicken PDF printer assigned to the port. Apparently, the interface from FB is sensitive to that (QB worked fine). I then opened the propert...

Printer not activated -20 ??? What is this?

I am a newbie coming over from QB and am having a problem printing. My system is an XP Home edition. I am running the FBIDE and downloaded .16 into the directory (I am assuming it is working but cannot find the level of FB; About only gives me level of IDE). I have an HP LaserJet 5 that is connected...
