Hardcopy problem

My application using XWD.EXE file to capture screen and then print on postscript printer via other server. I am printing from DECwindow Motif version 1.2-4 for OpenVMS running on Alpha workstation. During screen capture I am loosing some data ( I am trying to print Trend, I am loosing plot I am getting print for other data)

Same window I can print correctly from VAX Station (VLC) running DECwindow Motif version 1.2-3

Any help will be very much appreciated.
Thanks,

Re: Hardcopy problem

Hello,

you might want to try xwpick (e.g. at

)

Re: Hardcopy problem

I am new to VMS this XWPICK is same as XWD or because XWD is just scans display then there is printxwd process which will run after this so I am not sure this will be compatible with xwd???

Or I can just copy XWPICK to XWD (this might be stupid Question)

Re: Hardcopy problem

Hello,

the link in my previous mail is to a source package of xwpick. You do need Unzip and a C compiler on your system to build an executable (xwpick.exe) out of this. Given the fact that your system is very old (DW Motif 1.2-4 most
probably matches OpenVMS 7.1-2) I fear I can not build the executable for you.

Since xwpick can create Postscript directly no postprocessing in this respect is required (which is what you use xwdprint for apparently).

Re: Hardcopy problem

Martin,

Thanks,

I will try to build exe and then I will try.
What you think it could be motif problem if I upgrade motif then also it could work.


Thanks, again.
