Color printing

Postby GTGeek88 » Fri Oct 08, 2010 5:37 pm

I'm having trouble getting BullZip to print in color. I have a report that works fine when I print to my color inkjet. It has some standard text areas that are just black ink and then it has a pie chart, created from a JPG, that is in color. When I print it on the inkjet, it prints just fine. Nice, pretty pie chart in color. When I print it to BullZip to create a PDF, I get a gray-scale pie chart. I'm using RUNONCE.INI. That seem to work fine to tell it what to name the file, where to put it, etc., but is there some setting I need to use to get color? Any help would be appreciated.

JUST A NOTE TO ANY MODERATOR THAT MIGHT READ THIS . . . before posting I searched on the phrase "color printing", but it would not search on those words, saying they were too common. That seems ridiculous. Is this something that needs to be looked into and adjusted. That seems like a reasonable phrase to search on, IMHO.

Hi,

There shouldn't be any problems that I know of. Which program are you printing from?

BTW: I changed the search ;-)

I'm having the same issue,

Im using MFC C++ with VS6. When I try to read the GetDeviceCaps(BITSPIXEL) I get a value of 1.
All my images are appearing black.

Can anyone help?

I'm having the exact same issue.

Im coding in MFC C++ in VS6. When I read GetDeviceCaps(BITSPIXEL) I get a value of 1. Which seems wrong to me and all my images are coming out black.

Hello,

I had also a problem with color printing when programmaticly print (Visual basic)

After searching I found the setting: objBullzip.SetValue "icc","yes"

that works for me

Hi there, I'm having the same problem trying to get an Access Report to print through VBA. It prints fine, but in Black and White. If I print it manually using the BullZip driver, I can change the setting from Black and White to Color, and then it will print in color.

http://www.biopdf.com/guide/examples/microsoft_access/

I'm using the example from here and replacing biopdf with bullzip as instructed, yet nothing happens when I add the line .SetValue "icc", "yes"

Would you mind posting a sample of your code to show what object you created to setvalue icc?

I am having the same issue. When I print to CutePDF Printer, or any other printer, it comes out in color. When I print to Bullzip without using runonce.ini, it prints properly in color. However, when I print to Bullzip using runonce.ini, it comes out in grayscale. Setting .Setvalue "icc", "yes" had no effect for me either.

Does anyone else have a solution? Thanks!

The solution is to add the following color argument to your statement:


Object.ForeColor = vbRed
Object.Line (X1, Y1)-(X2, Y2), vbRed ' ok on both PictureBox and Printer
Object.Print "Text" ' ok on both PictureBox and Printer
