    Printing MS DOS Screen

    Hi,

    I am programming in Turbo Pascal 7.0 and get some graphics and text as a result.

    But when I need to make hard copy og this issue I get stuck.
    Even print screen doesn't copy this graphics, but only text.

    Does anybody have idea how to print Turbo Pascal result?

    Any help appreciated!

    have you tried Alt-PrtScreen then open Wordpad and press Ctrl-V to paste? That sequence copies the active window to the buffer and ctrl-v pastes it. I did this when creating documentation (with screens) for a DOS based system we have in use.

    I've just tried that, all I get is text.

    I normally do this by just running the program in a window then using the print screen key, pasting it in to paint and selecting copying the area containing the DOS screen, sorry I know this is the long way round but it's the only reliable method that really works for me.

    I agree,paint should work for your graphics.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    That thread on google groups discusses several options. I hope that helps.
