warning printing help file?

Postby duetto » 28. Sep 2009, 15:34

hi all,

i'm new to stx.

i'm using the gui builder tool and wanted to print pages. when i hit print button i get a warning "cannot open PSGraphicsContext" and nothing prints. i have loaded the class into my image.

i'm running windows xp and a hp laser printer.

also tried copy/paste in help but that doesn't seem to be supported.

any advice will be appreciated.

Unfortunately our HTMLDocumentViewer does not support printing under Windows. We will add this feature to our wish list.

A quick work around to print any page from the documentation (using any Internet Browser) is:

1. Navigate to the help page to print.
2. Click the "Source" button while pressing the CTRL key. This will open a FileBrowser with the selected html help file (for ex. "TOP.html").
3. In the FileBrowser, click the option "Browser>>Windows Explorer" (or CTRL+e) to open the Windows File Explorer in the folder where the html help files are.
4. Open the selected help file with the default Internet Browser and print from there.
