Cannot locate FBWinPrint

Postby BasicCoder2 » Jan 09, 2017 4:53

Have been trying without success to use the printer.
The link to FBWinPrint seems to be broken?
viewtopic.php?t=9498

Paul Squires WinXPrint.bi and test program example compiles but doesn't print anything.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25162
I am using a HP Photosmart 7520 series (Network)
The printer has no problem with LPRINT or printing from other programs like WORD, PAINT, Notepad etc.

I just tried printing using the testcode that I posted and it worked without any problem. (Of course, I first had to remove the erroneous "RSET" line of code that was just before the .DocEnd line).

I printed to a networked Lexmark laser printer.

Can you post the code you used?

When I run the test code below the console display is,
HP Photosmart 7520 series (Net
Done
No printing takes place.

save as WinXPrint.bi

' WinXPrint - Paul Squires v0.1
'
' Based on FBWinPrint - Windows Printing Library by Vincent DeCampo         
'
' --- CHANGES ---
' v0.1: - Consolidated a lot of code into proper class object thereby
'         making the code easier to read and maintain.
'       - Removed OpenFile, SaveFile. Better to use FF Function versions
'         instead.
'       - Changed the name of .Dialog to .ShowPrinterDialog
'       - Changed the name of .PrintWindow to .PPrintWindow

Interesting. Your code seems okay compared to the code I'm using. When you run the program a dialog window should open asking you to select your printer. When a printer is selected the dialog closes and the document is created. Your console window should print the name of the chosen printer and "Done" showing that the print job was created and sent to the printer via Windows print spooler. Are you able to see that the print job was created? It should be called "Untitled". If you have a "pdf printer driver" set up on your computer try printing to that instead as a test. If it creates the pdf document then at least we know the issue may be your specific type of printer. Not 100% sure at this point.

You could also try removing everything but the bare minimum to see if it prints. For example:

Code: Select all

#Include Once "WinXPrint.bi"

'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub PrintTest()

 Dim PO       As WinXPrint
 
 With PO
     If .ShowPrinterDialog = "" Then Exit Sub ' <- Shows Dialog (Not necessary if using default printer and settings)

? .PrinterName

     .DocStart
     .SetFont ("Courier New", 30, RGBA (255, 0, 0, 0) )
     .PPrint (300,200,"This is a simple test document")
     .DocEnd
 
 End With
End Sub

PrintTest   

Print "Done"
Sleep

In your last example code the Print window appeared as it did with the previous test code with the desired printer in the Select Printer list but again nothing was printed after selecting the [PRINT] button all that happened was,
HP Photosmart 7520 series (Net
Done
was printed on the console window.

This post being written in Notepad printed fine with File menu > Print ...

Run this short test inside the fltk-c-1.3.3 folder and report the error message if any.

The point are the error message (if any) not you have to use FLTK.

Joshy

Code: Select all

#include once "fltk-c.bi"
sub ButtonCB cdecl (byval wgt as Fl_Widget ptr,byval win as any ptr)
  dim as Fl_Printer ptr prt = Fl_PrinterNew()
  if prt then
    if Fl_PrinterStartJob(prt,1)=0 then
      if Fl_PrinterStartPage(prt)=0 then
        Fl_PrinterPrintWindow prt,win
        Fl_PrinterEndPage prt
      else
        beep:print "Fl_PrinterStartPage() failed"
      end if
      Fl_PrinterEndJob prt
    else
      beep:print "Fl_PrinterStartJob() failed"
    end if
    Fl_PrinterDelete prt
  else
    beep:print "Fl_PrinterNew() failed"
  end if
end sub
'
' main
'
var win = Fl_WindowNew(320,240)
Fl_WidgetSetCallbackArg Fl_ButtonNew(10,10,300,220,"print window"),@ButtonCB,win
Fl_WindowShow win
Fl_Run

The program worked fine, no error messages, printing an image of the window as seen on the computer screen.

I wonder if adding the StartPage / EndPage combination will correct your issue:

Code: Select all

#Include Once "WinXPrint.bi"

'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub PrintTest()

 Dim PO       As WinXPrint
 
 With PO
     If .ShowPrinterDialog = "" Then Exit Sub ' <- Shows Dialog (Not necessary if using default printer and settings)

? .PrinterName

     .DocStart
     .PageStart
     .SetFont ("Courier New", 30, RGBA (255, 0, 0, 0) )
     .PPrint (300,200,"This is a simple test document")
     .PageEnd
     .DocEnd
 
 End With
End Sub

PrintTest   

Print "Done"
Sleep

No change in behavior.
Looks like I might have to learn to use the FLTK library if I decide I need that functionality.
