Details of options

"Print" option

The "Print" option is used to print the content of the Scheduler control. A specific window is displayed, allowing you to configure the print.
AAF - Printing the schedule
This window allows you to configure:
  • the report orientation.
  • the time braket per page: day, week, month, ...
  • the period to print (set of dates).
Note: Depending on the options specified for the pages' time bracket and the period, the printing of the scheduler may require more than one page. For example, a schedule printed on a daily basis over a week will print 1 page per day.
The "Print" button is used to start the print.
The content of Schedule control is viewed in the print preview.
Regardless of the selected orientation, the content of the Schedule control is entirely printed between the specified bounds.
The characteristics of the print are as follows:
  • The title of the print corresponds to the caption of the Scheduler control. If no caption was specified for the Scheduler control, the report displays no title.
  • The print respects the colors used in the Scheduler control.
  • Today's date is printed at the bottom left.
  • The number of the current page and the total number of pages are printed in the bottom right corner.
  • The print takes into account the writing direction specified by ..TextDirection for the window and/or for the Scheduler control.
Notes:
  • The "Print" option found in the popup menu of the Scheduler controls requires to provide the print libraries of the WINDEV framework with the executable.
  • To avoid proposing the "Print" option in the popup menu of the Scheduler control, use DisableAAF associated with the aafPrintSchedule constant.To avoid proposing the "Print" option in the popup menu of the Scheduler control, use AAFDisable (or DisableAAF) associated with the aafPrintSchedule constant.
  • To customize the report associated with a specific Scheduler control, you must create a new Scheduler report based on this Scheduler control. It will be automatically associated with the Scheduler control and it will be printed via the "Print" option.

Customizing the setting window for printing the scheduler (available from version 170078)

WINDEV allows you to include the setting window for printing the scheduler used by the AAF in your application. You will have the ability to customize:
  • the appearance of this window (modification of skin template for example)
  • the languages supported by this window. This feature is very useful when translating this window into the different languages proposed by the application.
To include the window for configuring the print of the schedule in your application:
  1. Select "File .. Import .. WINDEV elements and their dependencies".On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, expand "Import" and select "WINDEV elements and their dependencies".
  2. Select the sub-directory containing the elements to import. The window for print configuration is found in the "Programs\Data\Preset windows\AAF" sub-directory of the setup directory of WINDEV.
  3. WINDEV lists the elements found in the directory. This directory contains the different elements corresponding to the customizable AAFs. The window to import is named "WinDevAaf_ConfigPrintingSchedulerOrganizer.wdw".
  4. Validate. The window is included in the project and it can be modified. This custom window will be automatically taken into account when running the application.
Notes:
  • The window must not be renamed.
  • If this window is included in your application, you may not benefit from the improvements made to this window during the different updates. Don't forget to check whether this window has evolved.
  • Caution: To modify this window, the corresponding file must not be read-only. Modify the characteristics of the file in Windows if necessary.
  • If you are using a scheduler control in your project, the Print AAF of the Scheduler control will also use this window.
Versions 18 and later

"Send by email" option

The "Send by email" option is used to:
  • print the content of the Scheduler control in a "Schedule.pdf" file.
  • create a new message in the messaging software configured by default and attach the generated "Schedule.pdf" file to this message.
The procedure for printing the organizer in the PDF file is identical to the print procedure performed via the "Print the schedule" option (see the previous paragraph).
The generated Scheduler report is not viewed in the print preview but it is directly printed in a file in PDF format.
