Printing out a graphics screen c++ metro direct2d

    Question

  • Is it possible to print a graphics screen to a printer in metro c++ ?

    I have rendered an image now I want to print it out.

    I had a look at the printing samples and none of these address what I am trying to do.

  • Hi,

    How do you make the screen into a image?
    Is your Windows store app based on XAML or Direct X?

    Best regards,

    I am using direct2d to render the graphics. It is a Metro app in c++.

  • I am trying to use the SimpleTextRenderer c++ example as a basis for my program.

    I just want to print out the contents of the screen to the printer.

    I don't need anything fancy just a basic print function.

    The printing samples provided by Microsoft wont fit in with my program. I just end up with lots of compile errors.

    Any help would be appreciated.
