First I want to thanks to RoyGlanfield for : Printing RichEdit
 



 
A long time ago I was wondering how to print RTF files in the background.
I just used to use this solution:
ShellExecuteWait($sRTF_FileFullPath, '', '', 'print') 

Unfortunately, it is slow and is not done, in the background.
 
 
A few days ago I was looking for a solution through google.
I found a solution at home  :) and exactly here.
 
I modified it a little, and behold, here it is:

    ===================================================
    2014/06/04
    v0.1 First official version

    2014/06/04
    v0.2
    * Global Variable renaming by adding $__
    * extended $__API_RTF_Printer
    * new function: _RTF_SetMargins($vMarginLeft = 1, $vMarginTop = 1, $vMarginRight = 1, $vMarginBottom = 1)
    * new function: _RTF_SetNumberOfCopies($iNumberOfCopies = 1)
    * added #Region RTF PRINTER initialization#
    * CleanUp
    * added #forceref
    * added #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-q -d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w- 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w- 7


    2014/06/12
    v0.3
    * Global Variable Renaming add 'RTF' to variable names and added $__ to be sure that no one else used the name
    * Global Variable renaming $aPageInfo to $__aRTFPageInfo to be sure that no one else used the name
    * variable renaming $hInput* to $iCtrlInput*
    * in _RTF_PrintFile() new parameter $fAddIndex
    * Setting RTF_Printer Window Title
    * fix problem with printing more than 16 RTF files >>  GUIDelete($__API_RTF_Printer[$__hRTF_Gui])
    * new internal function __RTF_AddLeadingZeros
    * added some more comments
    * brand new RTF_Printer_Examples.au3

    2014/06/15
    v0.4
    * $sRTF_FileFullPath_or_Stream   - A string value. Full path to the RTF file to be printed or Stream Data from _GUICtrlRichEdit_StreamToVar
    *       Now you can create documents in RichEdit and print them without the need to save the RTF file.
    *       You can also download the documents from the database and print them without having to save them to disk as RTF files.
    * new RTF_Printer_Examples.au3
    * new #Region MSDN Links , Help, Doc
    * some minior variable renaming

Today I found a bug.
Is related to printing multiple prints at once after 16 print documents are no longer transmitted to the printer.
More or less already know how to solve this problem.

I plan to release an update this week.
Any comments? Any feature requests?

mLipok, can you clarify the simplest call the print directly from a RichEdit control:

__RTF_Print($hPrintDc, $hRichEditCtrl, $sDocTitle)

Do I first call __GetDC_PrinterNoDialog()?

I ask because the GetDC function identified as Internal Use Only.  But, otherwise, I don't see how to populate $hPrintDC.

for example:

using _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create example from HelpFile:

; This is modyfied example from HelpFile based on _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create.au3

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

; here add reference to my UDF
#include "RTF_Printer.au3"

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $hGui, $hRichEdit, $iMsg
    Local $idPrint, $vRTF_Stream
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, 4) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1)

    ; here add Print button
    Local $idPrint = GUICtrlCreateButton("Print", 220, 320, 85, 25)

    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 220, _
            BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL))
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hRichEdit, @CRLF & "This is more text")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While True
        $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit) ; needed unless script crashes
                ; GUIDelete()   ; is OK too
                Exit

            Case $iMsg = $idPrint ; here is support for Clicking in Print button

                ; here Setting default margin - all = 1 centimeters
                ; you can set your own margins
                _RTF_SetMargins()

                ; here setting number of copies - default is 1
                _RTF_SetNumberOfCopies(1)

                ; here getting data to Print
                $vRTF_Stream = _GUICtrlRichEdit_StreamToVar($hRichEdit)

                ; and here Printing
                _RTF_PrintFile($vRTF_Stream, Default, True, True)

        EndSelect
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I'm sorry if I'm completely missing the point, here ... but this is what I tried and it works:

Func _Print()
   Local $Dc = __GetDC_PrinterNoDialog()
   Local $anySel = _GUICtrlRichEdit_GetSel($myEdit)         ; take note of user's selection, if any
   __RTF_Print($Dc, $myEdit, "Printed result")
   If $anySel[0] <> $anySel[1] Then
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($myEdit, $anySel[0], $anySel[1]) ; restore user's selection, if any
   Else
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_Deselect($myEdit)           ; otherwise, deselect all
   EndIf
EndFunc

Am I supposed to be calling _RTF_PrintFile() and ignoring that __RTF_Print() is available?

 

(BTW, I added the lines to restore the user's selection.  Maybe this should be considered for a future update.)

This look good.

Because it is easier and faster I think I will add this to UDF in a few day.

 

BTW:

I am not a RichEdit expert I just find RoyGlanfield example and adapt it to more usable form.

Cheers

Hi mLipok,

I'm trying to use this library as I see it being my go to for the application I'm developing. Really cool what you have done, I just have a little problem.

When trying to call __RTF_Preview() I get nothing, it doesn't come up with anything. This is how I am using it:

#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <RTF_Printer.au3>

Local $msg

Local $hWnd = GUICreate("", 200, 200)
Local $pEditWindow = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hWnd, "This is a test", 0, 0, 100, 100)
Local $pPreview = GUICtrlCreateButton("print preview", 100, 145)

GUISetState()

Local $acKeys[1][2] = [['^p', $pPreview]]

GUISetAccelerators($acKeys, $hWnd)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $pPreview
            prtPrevw()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($pEditWindow)
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func prtPrevw()
    Local $dc
    $dc = __GetDC_PrinterSetup()
    __RTF_Preview($dc, $pEditWindow)
EndFunc

Hopefully I'm just doing something trivial. Thanks for the help and the library!

EDIT: Added code for clarity.

Hmm, must be missing something yet again. I changed my RichEdit_Create statement to be identical and it still did not give me a print preview.

Tried changing it to

_GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hWnd, "", 0, 0, 100, 100, $ES_MULTILINE + $ES_AUTOVSCROLL)

still nothing :(

Am I flawed in calling

__RTF_Preview($dc, $pEditWindow)

Yep, I was just hoping your __RTF_Preview() function would do it for me. :)

I think in terms of time I might just make up something myself, as I cannot get the result I would like from it :(

I'll be thinking on this at night, now I have a nice evening.

Check tomorrow morning, or rather afternoon.

 

Thank you for your time mLipok :)

      I am seeing a weird result when pasting some lines from the forum into WordPad, even while using Paste Special > Unformatted Text ...
      Example: copy the reply from the first post here:
      Go to WordPad and Paste Special > Unformatted Text (Ctrl + Alt + v)
      Result is two fonts instead of one "unformatted" (I took out the blank lines):

      If you analyze the .rtf code, it has this font command in it: {\f1\fnil\fcharset134 SimSun;}}
      (1) Why is that there, or how can it even get through Paste Special?
      Is it really there, or is it a one-in-a-million text combo that triggers WordPad formatting?
      (2) Speaking in general, if you would run this through AutoIt, or you copied it with AutoIt, how would you prevent it?
      What could you filter out?
      Is this some kind of control code that can be filtered simply, or would you have to do a regex for these patterns?
      Thanks

      Two questions...
      When presenting a form containing a richedit control, is there any way to make the displayed text, within said richedit control, non-selectable?
      In addition, is there any way to hide the vertical line cursor, within said richedit control?
      Thanx.

      I've finally come up with some simple solutions for dragging & dropping a URL onto a control.
      There have been many requests here for this over the years.
      I do have an issue though, with my second code example solution as is mentioned here.
      The issue relates to working in Win 7 (and no doubt newer Windows).
      As I state there, failure is no doubt due to 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' missing from the System32 folder, at the very least.
      Not sure if it would be wise to just dump 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' from WinXP into the Win 7 System32 folder. I expect not.
      I imagine there is a better solution available in Win 7. Maybe a different OCX file, and perhaps a different Class of object etc.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Code is here (second example).
      EDIT
      Okay, I have rediscovered that 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' is a VB6 ActiveX control. So while I could dig up a copy and register it, that would probably not be helpful to everyone.
      And registering it didn't help. Possibly other dependencies are also needed?
      When running the script, it is clear going by the error reported, that Object is not being created.

      Hi guys
      Looking to automate...I have PDF files...Need to convert them all to 2 pages each but more specifically, retain only the first and last.
      Searched a lot and hitting the wall....Any ideas? Just directions would do...
      Not sure how to "print to file" and I believe |ShellExecuteWait($sFilePath, " /h /p", "", "print", @SW_HIDE)| doesn't give options of what pages...

      Please tell me, who knows how to apply and cancel styles in RTF?
      The following code does not work:
      #include <GuiRichEdit.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("RichEdit Style", 500, 500, -1, -1) $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "Test", 20,40,460,400) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) Sleep(3000) GUICtrlSetStyle($hRichEdit, $ES_RIGHT) Sleep(3000) GUICtrlSetStyle($hRichEdit, -1) Sleep(3000) Thanks!
