Hi I was wondering if you can help me. I am stuck on a director project.

I want the user to be able to print information from a screen, but I do not know the lingo or any other way to do this can you help? I am using Director MX 2004 any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rob

hi,

The Lingo "printFrom" command prints whatever is on the stage in the frame(s) passed to the command. The command can be used to print any frame in your score. Frames can be passed to the command as either numbers or marker labels. You can pass a single starting frame number, in which case every frame in the movie will be printed, including the one specified. Alternatively, you can also pass the ending frame to be printed, which will cause only the specified range of frames to print, inclusive of the two frames you specified. In either case, you can also specify a reduction value in %.

Note:
The 'printFrom' command is not supported in Shockwave movies.

Valid syntax for the command used on a button on stage would be as follows:

CODE
on mouseUp



printFrom 1, 2, 50



end


I hope this helps, if you want a more accurate print function or something better feel free to ask and I will give you some better code

Cheers
