Problem with bitmap and Crystal Report

P: n/a
Bitmap that I put on my Crystal Report is printed in very bad
resolution; it is completely rastered, and it is very hard to read
letters on it.

Printer settings are:

Quality Settings: Draft
Print Quality 300 x 300 dots per inch.

The problem is that the same bitmap, on the same printer and same
settings was printed decently from MS Office Applications (Access,
Word) and from Paint.

Printer settings should remain the same.

Could I change any related settings from vb.net code?

P.S. The code:

rpt.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation =
CrystalDecisions.[Shared].PaperOrientation.Landscape

does not have any effect, although report is designed to be Landscape,
and this code is written:

Dim rpt As New cr
rpt.SetDataSource(ds.Tables(0))
rpt.PrintOptions.PaperSize =
CrystalDecisions.[Shared].PaperSize.PaperA4
rpt.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = CrystalDecisions.
[Shared].PaperOrientation.Landscape

Does anyone has any idea?

Thanks, Jelena

Hi Jelena,

How does it appear when you print preview? Is it distorted in any way?

You might want to try to save it in .jpg and/or .gif formats and then place
it on the report and test print that.

If you send me the .bmp I will put it on a report and print it out to see if
the problem is your printer.

HTH,

Dear Bernie,

Thank you for trying to help me. I sent you three different bitmaps,
but I tried also with other formats like gifs and jpgs. The effect is
the same. Picture is not destorted, it has its form, but the quality
is awful. On the preview everything seems fine, but when I print it I
can not read the letters and digits.

And there is a correction: The printer does not have Quality Settings
Property so its not set to Draft.

Maybe I have this problem because Crystal Report does not corespond
very well with this old HP Laser Jet III and its driver.

Thanks a lot.
