I would like to be able to capture the gui as it sits but just print the text in a specific layout? Any ideas ?

I have a couple of ideas.

  • Post something that shows what you want to accomplish.
  • Post some code that you have tried.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

All I would like is to be able to print out a image of the GUI eg. Capture the gui cordinates and save to image. Then I was thinking of adding the data so that it creates a HTML or XML based file for the data with the same layout.. Then Printing them.

The part that I'm stumped on is getting the objects to print as I have tried Martins and Others without success..

Unless you have a better Idea.

I have tried lots of other programs from Martin and they are great.. But this print one it just seems to always crash on me.. All I'm doing is using his printexample... Wish there was something built in for printing..

Ok! Good luck with your search and thanks for the idea!

[edit] typo

Hey, I wasnt able to do built in printing, but i was able to accomplish this with Irfanview! It's free for non-commercial use at www.irfanview.com

None the less, Here's the Example code i used to capture and print my Gui on command.

GuiSetCursor(16, 1)
_ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd("C:\Temp.bmp", $GUI1,2,21,832,661)
Run('i_view32.exe c:\Temp.bmp /print')
FileDelete("C:\Temp.bmp")
GuiSetCursor(2, 0)

The GuiSetCursor commands hide the Mouse Pointer just incase it is on the form!
