    Image not appearing

    UbuntuPenguin Level 4

      Hello Everyone ,

        The application I am working on uses printing.  To print something that hasn't been rendered yet , I do the whole "make invisible , add/remove from the topApplication" dance.  I decided to add an image to one of my printing components , and this is where problems arose.


           When I embed the image source , the image prints accordingly.  However , when I set the image source dynamically , the image refuses to print.  Is there a way I can force the image to draw itself.  I have tried validateNow , and validateDisplayList as well as setting the creationPolicy="all" , but to no avail.


      Sincerely ,

          I dont't think that without rendering image you can print it.Please try this hope this will fullfill your requirement.

              Before priniting, create an Image SnapShot of the image, then add the snapshot to the print. You Need not print the image dynamically.




              1. ImageSnapshot.

              2. Add the snapshot to print

              3. print.


              You will definately acheive success.
