Hi, is there a reason why the winforms samples were removed from github?

Also, is it possible to print a pdf or svg generated via graphicsmill in c# code?

Thanks

We removed Windows Forms Controls in the version 9 of Graphics Mill SDK. if you still need this functionality or need code samples please submit a case.

Do you need to print to a local/network printer or do you need to generate a PDF file for further processing?
Best regards,

Basically we're generating images at runtime in RGB or CMYK (depending on the printer with printer/paper specific colour profiles to be accurate as possible) and we need to be able to print them. We haven't done a lot of printing code but the prototype i made last year used the winforms code so that we can print cmyk images as far as i know.

Printing a pdf is less important, we we're thinking of generating PDFs so we can store a record of what documents were generated/printed so would be preferable if we just generated that then printed it.

Is it possible to print cmyk etc. images to a windows printer if graphicsmill doesn't wrap that functionality?

Edit: We don't actually use Winforms (we use WPF) but we may also print from a headless/server machine so even if there was a way of just creating a print job made of images that would be good?

Thanks

If you have a valid license for GM, we provide you the source code of WinForms package for free. Please submit a support case.

As I understand, WinForms doesn’t have any special abilities for printing. It uses Bitmap.DrawOn method inside PrintPage event handler. Inside DrawOn method pixel data is converted to Format24bppRgb, so only RGB data is printed.
