PEgetmeta Method

Scope All ProEssentials Interfaces


PEgetmeta As Long


This function returns the handle of a metafile that is managed by the ProEssentials object. Do not use the Windows DeleteMetafile function on this handle. ProEssentials will call this function when necessary.



Use the returned handle with ProEssentials PEplaymetafile function or Windows PlayMetafile API call to send the image to any device context.


Seen Chapter 7, common Question 21.


Also see "PRNTPAGE.TXT" or "VCPrint.txt" in the directory where ProEssentials was installed to see a basic example of sending an image to a printer's DC.
