Panel Graphic stretched when plot is printed

Post by BVSimmons » Fri Mar 07, 2014 10:24 pm

Just upgraded to TeeChart 2014 for Delphi 2007 (version: 2014.10.140220)

I noticed that the custom graphic that I placed on the panel is stretched when the graphic is set to the printer. I noticed that the Bounds Tab of the Image Tab of the Panel Tab is always set the Style to Stretch and the Style can not the changed because it is grayed out. (See the attached screen shot 'TEEChart.png').

I have included a ScreenShot of the graph as it appears on the screen (Sample.png)

And a Screen shot of the output set to a PDF printer driver, the same occurs when set directly to a printer (SampleOutput.png)

Is there a work around that I can implement to prevent this from happening?

This did not occur with Tee Chart 8.08.

Thanks
Bernard

Hello Bernard,

We'd need to see how are you exactly loading/drawing this graphic. Could you please arrange a simple example project we can run as-is to reproduce the problem here?

Thanks in advance.

These options are greyed out if you don't have an image loaded in the same editor, here:

HI Yeray,

Sorry for the delay it too me a bit of time to create a sample project which was stripped down to just focus on this issue.

In the sample C++ Builder (2007) just select from the Print menu to Print the graphic on the screen and you will see the effect.

Hope it is something simple that I am doing which is causing this.

Thanks in advance

Bernard

Hello,

You project contains references to packages we don't have here: TAdvMainMenu, TAdvMenuStyler. Anyway, I could move the code from your project to a new project and reproduced the problem. I'd suggest you to take a look at the following resources:

- Printing Better article
- StretchDraw technique
- Printing Charts FAQ

I'd suggest you to check the StretchDraw technique.

I didn't use the StretchDraw method.
I don't know where to implement it.Using the ChartPreviewer component.
