I am working on a program which constructs simple graphic diagrams which
need to be printed. Currently, I am drawing on an FXCanvas, doing a
screen capture of the window with ALT-PrintScreen, pasting the bitmap
into MS Paint, and printing from there.
The documentation for FXPrinter, etc seems pretty thin and I haven't
found an example or demonstration for its use tho I did find a couple of
archived emails that suggest it may be limited, particularly on Windows.
I am using Ruby 1.8.26, FXRuby 1.6.14, and Windows XP SP3
How do other applications, *nix or Windows, handle printing?
Is there anything in FxRuby or elsewhere that can be used to directly
capture the canvas pixels in a form that can be exported in a useful
Thank you for any advice or suggestions, however incomplete.
