Slow Printing

Post by jcusack » Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:52 pm

Hi,
I seen someone else posted a problem with the Slow Printing using the .Net GdViewer.
I'm having the exact same problem, ie where it is increasing the size of the file hugely when it sends it to the printer and taking a very long time to print.
Is there any fix for this yet, as it is causing a lot of problems?

Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Are you using the latest edition ?

What kind of document are you printing ?

Do you have an example of code to give us ?

Kind regards,

Loïc

Hi,
I'm using version 6.3.0.5
I've tried printing a few pdf documents.
For example, I tried printing a 7.43 KB pdf file and it sends it to the printer as 18.7 MB.
I tried printing a 3.98 MB pdf file and it sends it to the printer as 107 MB.

The code I'm using in a dummy app to test the Viewer is below:
(I've tried a few different settings, this should be low quality/low resolution)

Thanks,
John

Code: Select all

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        GdViewer1.ZoomMode = GdPicture.ViewerZoomMode.ZoomModeToViewer
        GdViewer1.DisplayQuality = GdPicture.DisplayQuality.DisplayQualityLow
        GdViewer1.PdfRenderPageToGdPictureImage(10, 1)
        GdViewer1.SetLicenseNumberUpgrade("XXX", "XXX")
        GdViewer1.DisplayFromFile("C:/invoice.pdf")
    End Sub

    Private Sub UltraButton1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles UltraButton1.Click
        GdViewer1.PrintSetColorMode(GdPicture.PrinterColorMode.PrinterColorModeGray)
        GdViewer1.PrintSetQuality(GdPicture.PrintQuality.PrintQualityLowResolution)
        GdViewer1.Print()
   End Sub

Hi,
I'm afraid still getting same problem.
It's not increasing the size of the file as much when sending to printer, but still increasing it significantly and causing much slower printing.
Printer is: HP LaserJet M2727 MFP Series PCL 6.
We never had this problem with the Active X version of the control, using the same printers.

Rgds,
John

John,

I'm not sure to understand this:

Could you be clearer ?

Could you send the PDF you are testing at esupport (at) gdpicture (dot) com ?

Kind regards,

Loïc
