printer

Compiling

To compile the example:

  • Launch EiffelStudio.
  • Click Add project
  • Browse to $ISE_EIFFEL\examples\wel\printer\.
  • Choose printer.ecf
  • Choose the location where the project will be compiled, by default the same directory containing the configuration file.
  • Click OK.

Running

After launching the program, a window will be displayed as illustrated above. Selecting "Print" from the "File" menu will open a print dialog which will allow you to specify a printer and additional print information before printing the contents of the window.

Under the Hood

MAIN_WINDOW inherits WEL_FRAME_WINDOW and the feature on_paint has been redefined to display the output in the client area. A WEL_PRINT_DIALOG is used to retrieve the print options before the printing occurs through the interface provided by a WEL_PRINTER_DC . This sample contains the following classes:

  • APPLICATION_IDS
  • MAIN_WINDOW
  • PRINTER_DEMO
