The sample program REPMKR in the Microsoft Download Center demonstratesthe code required to print a report. The report generator prints plain-textreports in monospace fonts either on a printer or in a print-previewwindow. The code to handle printer display contexts is encapsulated in thereport generator code. The interface does not require the host program towork with printing code.
NOTE: This sample was originally written for Windows 3.0. Applications targeted for Windows 3.1 should modify this sample's code to utilize the Common Dialog boxes.

The file is stored on security-enhanced servers that help to prevent any unauthorized changes to the file. The three functions of the report generator are as follows:
Function Description -------- ----------- PrinterSetupDialog(void) Brings up the standard Printer Setup dialog box PrinterSelectDialog(void) Allows the user to select a printer for use by the report generator PrinterControl(int iCommand, Controls page layout int iParam, LPSTR szParam)
The following is the table of specific commands:
iCommand iParam szParam -------- ------ ------- PC_SETCOLS # of columns/page Not used PC_SETROWS # of rows/page Not used PC_PRINT Not used Not used PC_CLEARALL Not used Not used PC_ADDLINE -1 for next line, LPSTR to line of text (n) for line # to add PC_ADDBAR -1 for width of page LPSTR to character (n) for bar width (NULL will print '-') PC_SETPAGENUM Page number Not used PC_SETHEADERn Not used LPSTR to header, NULL will clear PC_ADDHEADERn Not used Not used PC_SETFOOTER1 Not used LPSTR to header, NULL will clear PC_ADDFOOTER1 Not used Not used PC_STARTJOB Not used Not used PC_ENDJOB TRUE = OK, Not used FALSE = Abort PC_SETTITLE Not used LPSTR to title of print job PC_SETPRINTMODE PC_CODE_PRINT or Not used PC_CODE_PREVIEW
In the REPMKR archive file is a sample program BASE that demonstrateshow to use these functions.
Each header is printed on every page, unless it is set to NULL. Eachfooter is printed on every page, unless it is set to NULL. The titleof the print job is displayed in the "printing" message box.
