Hello everybody i have a small question , not big enough for the quick answers . I am working on a MFC project a little bit old. And i had to add a header to the print result. My problem was with the font Size. After some tries i found the really useful Article about Printing trics. The problem was when i used
Printing was ok but the PrintPreview wasnt. The font size was still small and i know why the GetDeviceCaps was returning the dpi of the monitor. This was understandable . After some digging in the code i found that for the rest printed text the font size was calculated a little bit different. For the font Height was taken the absolute value of the height multiplied by the zoom and all divided by some constant. My question is is there some practice about that kind of calculation . To be honest i don't think its a good idea to use it. I don't believe that all printers will print the same thing. But the PrintPreview and the Print result are pretty much the same.
What do you think ?
