Problem Printing In Color

User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any problems printing to a color printer?  If I try to print

a chart to an HP color printer from within the ChartFX (98) control, the

output is always black and white. If I copy the chart to Word and then

print to the same printer it prints in color. I've made sure that the

printer settings are for color but it still prints in black and white.

We've tried several HP color printers, all modern, and still get the same


Any help would be appreciated.

It is printing in gray shades.

Where should I set Printer.ForceColors=True? We are developing in VB6 with

ChartFX 98. We have no printing logic of our own. We merely included the

Printer button included in the "Property pages" popup when designing the UI


We can set the "Force colors" at run-time from the print preview popup but

if you could help me out with defaulting that programatically that would be

a great help.
