Programmer Reference : Common Printing : Using a printer shell
Using a printer shell
As mentioned above, a CwPrinterShell is used to create print jobs. The window associated with a CwPrinterShell corresponds to the physical page on the printer, and can be drawn on using standard Common Graphics commands. The shell itself handles job and page control.
CwPrinterShell has the same application program interface (API) as a CwTopLevelShell widget, with the following exceptions:
Child widgets are not supported. Graphics can be drawn on the window associated with the printer shell, but child widgets cannot be added to the shell.
Video-specific features such as shell iconification are not supported.
Additional printer-specific methods such as resolution are included in the CwPrinterShell API.
