Creating RTF-File with WMF Graphics included

Creating RTF-File with WMF Graphics included

Post by Markus Koc » Sat, 25 Mar 2000 04:00:00


we have a problem when creating RTF-Files with WMF-Graphics included.
First we create a TMetafile with the following parameters:
Then we create a TMetafileCanvas from the above TMetafile to paint on.
When painting is finished, we insert in the RTF-File the following tags:
fprintf( RTFFile,
                            , widthPix, heightPix, widthPix  * 20, heightPix
* 20  // TWIPS = 1/20 Pixel );
After inserting these tags we write the Metafile to the RTF-File by
converting every Byte
we get of  the TMetafile->SaveToStream Function to hexvalue. After that we
add an "}".
When we open the RTF-File with MS-WORD there is all the Text, but no
graphic. Sorry,
there is a Box at the place where the graphic shoud appear, but no image.
The similar same procedure with a TBitmap (other tags) works fine.

Do someone has an idea whats wrong ?

Thanks for help!

1. * * * URGENT Include an EnhancedMetaFile in a RTF File * * *

Hi *.*

I'm trying to put an EMF in an RTF
I can store the emf on disk using the CreateEnhMetaFile API
I can create a memory based EMF with the CreateEnhMetafile API and export it
as an Emf using
    Clipboard.SetData hEmf, vbcfMetafile
I can insert the emf into an rtf string, insert the string in the clipboard
and paste it into Word 2000 using
    Clipboard.SetText strRTF, vbcfRTF
    The PageLayout view shows it like I want it.
    The PrintPreview shows it like I want it too.
    When I try to print it, using word, only a small part of the emf is
zoomed in the expected image rectangle.

What am I doing wrong?
I want the printed document to look like the preview...
