  • 1. Common Interface for objects that expose VB-drawing-API
    Hi VB.Form, VB.PictureBox and VB.Printer have a TextWidth and TextHeight-method, they also share these VB-Drawing methods like PaintPicture, PSet, Line, Circle, Print, Cls and props like CurrentX, CurrentY, DrawMode, DrawWidth, FillColor and some more. Is there a name for a common COM-interface that these VB-objects implement, so that if i can specify this interface-type for an argument of a method, rather then the generic 'Object'-type? I am replacing controls that have multiple cols displaying text-entries like listviews, grids, option-groups etc by text printed onto either pictureboxes, forms or the printer-object and i need to get max text-width and -height of the list-control. So it was nice, although not necessary, if i could pass the control that executes TextWidth and TextHeight by a strong type. My current signature is: Public Sub GetMaxTextEntend _ ( _ oCtrl As Object, _ oNewContainer As Object, _ ByRef sngMaxTextWidth As Single, _ ByRef sngMaxTextHeight As Single _ ) where oNewContainer As Object, should by replaced by oNewContainer As IVBContainerForDrawing, Now does this interface exist and does it have a name?

  • 2. Update a graphic and save it
    Hi, New to this so bear with me. I am printing to a "pre-printed" form. The user wishes to pre-view and capture a 'picture' of this as well as print it. So my basic idea is to scan in the form and then 'update it' with the text that I am going to send to the printer, and then save the updated image as a new file. Had hoped that it would be as easy as loading a picture box with the image, printing on it and saving the image with the savepicture function, but that dosent work! So it looks like I need to get into the API. Anyone have some code they want to share? Also, since I am going to pre-view the form, how do I 'scale' it down to fit on the screen? Any help or comments are greatly appreciated. -- Terry PS: I am cross-posting this to vb.general.discussion
  • 3. display properties again
    Thanks Mike for the support. I can control font and size of the menu kine now from my application! Could you do that same miracle for the windows caption (blue top bar of appl. window) font as well? That would be the only font left that I can not control. Regards Walter

convert multipage tif image into seperate files

Postby VG9tIEY » Wed, 12 Jan 2005 09:33:02 GMT

I am looking to scan a large amout of documents. I believe I will end up with 
a bunch of documents that contain 30-50 pages. They will come from the 
scanner as  large tif files. I would like to break them up into a tif file 
for each page. I'm pretty good with VB and would like to use it to automate 
this task if possible. I looked on google and can't find anything. I'm sure 
it's out there but I think I'm not picking good key words. Can someone give 
me a hint on that?

I figured it out. It isn't very elegent though. I basically open the tif 
using the MODICtl that is available if you have office 2003 installed. Then I 
systemitacally delete every image on the page except for one and then save 
that as that page#.tif. In case you hadn't figured it out, all the pages I've 
scanned have the page # listed on the bottom. That makes them be the last 
word on the document. Below is a snippet of code that may be useful to 

Set miDoc = New MODICtl.Document
 Dim breakUp, m, n, pre, post
 numberofPagesButton = True
 For n = 0 To numberofPages - 1
     miDoc.Create "C:\01.tif"
          For pre = 0 To n - 1
          miDoc.Images.Remove miDoc.Images(0)
          Next pre
          numberofPages = miDoc.Images.Count
          For post = 1 To numberofPages - 1
          miDoc.Images.Remove miDoc.Images(1)
          Next post
          ' miLayout.NumWords  miLayout.Words(0).Text
        Set miLayout = miDoc.Images(0).Layout
        miDoc.SaveAs "C:\" & miLayout.Words(miLayout.NumWords - 1).Text & 

    Next n
Set miDoc = Nothing

2.Setting the compression when creating the multipage Tif files in

I was successful in creating the multipage Tif files in using

        Dim pages As Bitmap = Nothing
        Dim PgCnt As Integer
        Dim ix As Integer

        Dim fl As String

        If Dir$(resultFl) <> "" Then
        End If


        Dim enc As System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder =

                Dim info As System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageCodecInfo =

        For Each ice As System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageCodecInfo In

            If ice.MimeType = "image/tiff" Then

                info = ice

New System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameters(1)

        Do While fl <> ""
            fl = UCase$(fl)
            If InStr(fl, ".JPG") <> 0 Or InStr(fl, ".GIF") <> 0 Then
                ix = ix + 1
                fl = DrNm + "\" + fl
                If ix = 1 Then

                    ep.Param(0) = New
CType(System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderValue.MultiFrame, Long))

                    pages = Image.FromFile(fl)
                    pages.Save(resultFl, info, ep)
                                        ep.Param(0) = New
CType(System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderValue.FrameDimensionPage, Long))

                    Dim bm As Bitmap = Image.FromFile(fl)
                    pages.SaveAdd(bm, ep)
                End If
            End If
            fl = Dir$()

               ep.Param(0) = New
CType(System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderValue.Flush, Long))


    End Sub

My big problem now is that I was not able to find information on how I
also set the compression that I need for the pages of those multipage
files. For example, for the black and white images in a multipage Tiff
the compression should be CCITT4, and, for the color images in a
Tif file, the compression should be JPEG medium compression with the
resolution. How can it be accomplished?

Thank you very much.

4.Using MODI to convert multi-page tif to single page tif

I have thousands of multipage tif images in many subdirectories that I need 
to convert into single page tifs.  I have vba code to do this (written in MS 
Access) that loops thru the directory tree and I can access info about the 
tifs using MODI.  What I'm looking to do now is convert/save the existing 
multiple page tif to a series of single page tifs so they can be imported 
into our image repository.  Anyone know how to do this?  For example, if the 
current multiple page tif is six pages is would create six single page tifs 
(e.g. sample1_page1.tif,sample1_page2.tif,...


5.Convert multiple .rtf files to .tif files

I have a whole bunch of .rtf files that I want to convert to .tif

Is it possible to "convert" each of the .rtf files to .tif files using
the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer without opening up an
instance of MS Word? I'd like to do a "background" conversion (because
there are so many files).

The user would launch the application and select the source directory
where all the .rtf files are stored. Then the user clicks a "Convert"
button and the files in the directory that the user specifies are
converted to .tiff in the background.

Can this be done, or do I have to use an instance of MS Word in the
