RTF > PDF conversion

1 post in this topic

Here:
https://github.com/nachbar/TRichViewToPdfUsingDebenu/blob/master/Unit1.cpp

I found a code in C++ for file format conversion from RTF to PDF with using Debenu QuickPDF.

I know how to use Debenu QuickPDF in AutoIt .

My question is about RTF part of this code:
 

HDC hdcNew         = debenu->GetCanvasDC(
            RTFPRINTINGDOTSPERINCH * RTFPAGEWIDTHININCHES,
            RTFPRINTINGDOTSPERINCH * RTFPAGEHEIGHTININCHES);
        canvas         = new TCanvas;
        canvas->Handle = hdcNew;
        RVReportHelper1->DrawPage(
            PageCounter,
            canvas,
            true,
            RTFPRINTINGDOTSPERINCH * RTFPAGEHEIGHTININCHES); // LastPageHeight);

 

First there is hdcNew declaration , and this is not the problem.

My problem is in converting the following code snippet, to AutoIt

canvas         = new TCanvas;
        canvas->Handle = hdcNew;
        RVReportHelper1->DrawPage(
            PageCounter,
            canvas,
            true,
            RTFPRINTINGDOTSPERINCH * RTFPAGEHEIGHTININCHES); // LastPageHeight);


If you remember, I created RTFPrinter sometime ago. But it was some time ago , and created by trial and error, rather than in-depth analysis.
Also, it was just a modification of another script, not my own work from scratch.

So now I'm looking for help how to adapt this code snippet to AutoIt.

Any tips ?

      I woud like to know how i can handle my Problem.
      ----
      I have a Excel Data with 362 random numbers.
      For Example:
      1166642335374 1172899897343
      .....
      this numbers are a part of the filepath ...example
      D:\Projekte\1166_64233_5374
      as u can see its the first number of the Excel data. After the first 4 numbers it shoud make a "_" than another 5 "_"
      This is my first question. How can i handle this to make it Shell execute.
       
      --------
      Second question:

      For Example:
      D:\Projekte\1166_64233_5374
      the code shoud search for specific PDF Files.
      They are named like: 0050569E364B1ED79B900F73E62660EC.pdf

      Hey Everybody,
      as you know im on a very low autoit-level.
      My question is: How can i read all PDFs from a Folder wich is open and copy them to a Folder on a Desktop.
       
      The Folder wich contains the PDFs is variable Z:\Projektls\"*"*"*EVERYTIME ANOTHER ENDING"*"*"*"*"
      There can be 1 PDF or even 15 PDFs.
      i tried it with _FileListToArray and _FileCopy but i Need some help to understand this language
       
      THANKS!

      Hi Guys,
      I've been reading this post ...
      When I came accross the examples, non of them had what I was looking for.
      I basically want to "snapshot" my GUI's multiple tabs and send them into the pdf.
      A little nudge from you guys would be great.
      Im really stuck with this one, therefore I have no code.
      Lets discuss or point me in a right direction... thanks alot

      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
