PRB: Cannot Print Graphical Image from Clipboard

ID: Q101800

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5 and 2.5a


When you try to print a graphical image from the Windows Clipboard using FoxPro for Windows, a blank page is ejected from the printer.


FoxPro for Windows is designed to print only text information from the Clipboard. FoxPro initializes/returns information to or from the Clipboard by way of the system memory variable _CLIPTEXT. _CLIPTEXT, by design, is not intended to handle graphical images.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

1. Copy a bitmap from Paintbrush to the Clipboard.

2. In FoxPro for Windows, choose Print from the File menu, and select

   Clipboard from the Windows list box.

The resulting output is a blank page.
