    Odd behavior with Flex Printing

    Bryan Dresselhaus

      I am trying to print a canvas using the mx.printing libraries. I have a UIComponent, which is a canvas, displayed in the user interface. I want to print it out so I start a print job and call the addObject property of the print job, passing the canvas as the parameter.

      I proceed to call the send method which invokes the windows printing dialog where you choose your printer and settings. If you proceed to print everything works as normal - the canvas is printed out. However, if you choose cancel at the windows dialog my canvas in the user interface just disappears.

      Has anyone else run into this issue? Am I taking the wrong approach to printing UIComponents? Why would my canvas disappear?
