Delphi/Pascal >> Print to a USB printer (newbie)

by Nektarios - Greece » Sat, 01 Jul 2006 15:43:36 GMT

I have a program that it does some math to calculate some real variables.
I want the user to press a button and print these values of these
variables with some info text as a string.
The printer might be connected to LPT or USB port.
I couldn't find anywhere some code about this.
Any help please ?


==================================================================

Example of print report :

------------------------
Name of Application
------------------------

Some text as string...

The results are :
A = 34.3445
B = 1,200
N = 1
K = 1.3452

------------------------
END OF PRINT

Look up "printer" in the Delphi help, there should be
an example, too.

Printer.begindoc;
printer.canvas.textout(32,32,'The Results are...');
Printer.enddoc;


As long as the printer is installed and has a windows driver (so you can
print to it from word etc. too), it doesn't matter if its connected to
LPT or USB or Network.

3. Newbie - Printing to Zebra printer

I'm a newbie to .NET and Google.  I am trying to write a C#
application that prints a barcode label to a Zebra (thermal) printer. 
I am using the PrintDocument class (System.Drawing.Printing
namespace).  Though it prints to the printer, it only prints the
actual ZPL code (e.g. "^XA^LH05,...).  I've tried to switch to the
Generic /Text Only driver, but before it gets to my ZPL code, it
displays the error "The data area passed to a system call is too
small."  I noticed that I cannot even print a test page using this
driver.  I have W2K SP3.  I retrieved a pre-sp3 Driver.cab file and
tried swapping out the driver files that begin with TTY and UNI, but
that didn't work, either.

Can anyone help??

Thanks

5. Newbie: Question regarding printing photos

I have an Olympus Digital camera and I'd like to print borderless 4x6
prints.  Using the default high quality setting on the camera to take
pictures I end up with a huge file, probably about 11x14.  When I try to
print this to 4x6 photo paper the wider edge shows a margin on either side
of the photo.  I'm not even sure what question to ask.  I would like the
photo to print on the whole paper rather than leaving the borders on the
edges.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to tutorials or methods to use
to get the image to the right size without cropping parts of the photo?

Printer is a Canon i950 BTW.

Thanks much,
Rich

7. MacBook - Newbie: Need help on printing to XP shared printer

MacBook - Newbie: Need help on printing to XP shared printer

Bear with me please. I read tons of articles on this but somehow as a
newbie to MAC, I am missing something. 10.5.2

Currently, I set the MACBOOK up so my friends daughter can print
directly if we plug in the HP Deskjet 5490 printer directly via USB to
the MACBook. No problem.

When we first got the MACBOOK I tried setting up the MACBOOK
wirelessly to recognize the workgroup where the printer was attached
via USB to the Windows XP PC. However it printed out garbage since I
did not know there was a difference between XP printing and MAC
(Gutenberg/gimp printing/drivers).

I now know there is a difference after reading a little.

But in reading various instructions I Googled, I no longer can find
how to connect the MAC to the Windows workgroup. Note we do have a
printer set up currently as USB-HP Deskjet on the Macbook (not sure I
need to delete it yet).

I went to System Preferences on MACBOOK and clicked on printers, more
printers. In the drop down box was CANON, APPLETALK, IP HP printing
and Firewire. There was no WINDOWS selection as I saw in other online
web instructions.

So not sure how to proceed to
1. Connect to workgroup (click on what exactly), step by step please!!
2. Add correct printer



Thanks so much in advance.
Sincerely
Patty
