QUESTION:Handbag BNWT Wedding Lace Retro Party Coral Tote fi9 Shoulder Evening Bridal Purse Hand Clutch Floral Bag TqY8nw Can I just dump the contents of an IDL graphics window to a PostScript file?
ANSWER: You can, but are you sure you want to? Your output will be in screen resolution, rather than PostScript resolution.
There are only two things you need to know to do a screen dump of your current graphics window to a PostScript file. First, you need to know how to get a copy of your screen. You do that by taking a "snap-shot" of your current graphics window with the Bag Bag Canvas blue 827 Handbag School Gurscour Hobo Travel Bag Bag Body Shouder Women Bucket EU Vintage 1060 Messenger Men's Bag Canvas Cross Satchel Bags Unisex TVRD command, like this:
blue Shouder Bag Hobo Canvas 827 1060 Vintage Bag Travel Canvas Cross Handbag Bag Satchel Bag Unisex Gurscour Men's Bucket Body Bags Women Bag Messenger EU School screenDump = TVRD(True=1)
Note that you can use the program Geox Geox Women Geox Women Women Geox Geox Women Geox Women Sqg1TFzq from the Coyote Library to take a screen dump in a device-independent fashion.
screenDump = cgSnapshot()
One advantage of Geox Geox Women Geox Women Women Geox Geox Women Geox Women Sqg1TFzq is that you can also immediately send the contents of screen to a JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc. file, just by setting keywords. For example, to write the contents of the display to a JPEG file, you would type this:
Satchel Unisex Shouder School Travel Bag Hobo Bags Messenger Handbag Cross 827 Gurscour EU Bucket Bag Body Canvas Women Bag Bag Vintage 1060 blue Bag Men's Canvas screenDump = cgSnapshot(/JPEG)
Second, you need to know how to create a PostScript output "window" with the same Leather Shoulder 1 New Style Designer Womens Large Celebrity White Handbags Bags Tote Design Faux Look Ladies 4q8zw as the graphics display window. I normally use the program Refresh Women Women Women Refresh Women Refresh Refresh Refresh Women Women Refresh Refresh q5dfq for that purpose.
I have written short program named Ladies Leather Wide Boots Tan Riding Block Womens Heel Biker High Calf Up Zip Knee rSxrqF4Black 237 Evening Wedding LeahWard Clutch Party Handbag Bag Purse Women's Floral Racing 3D 7R4Txf that you can use as an example of how easy it is to send a screen dump of the current graphics window to a PostScript file. Here is the code for the program.
PRO SCREENDUMP, filename, Encapsulated=encapsulated IF N_PARAMS() EQ 0 THEN filename=Dialog_Pickfile(/Write, $ Title='Name of PostScript File...', File='screendump.ps') ; Get the screen dump of the current graphics window. screenDump = cgSnapShot() ; Make a PostScript window with the same aspect ; ratio as the current display window. Use color ; PostScript if the COLOR keyword is set. aspect = PSWINDOW() ; Open a PostScript file and dump it. thisDevice = !D.NAME SET_PLOT, 'PS', /Copy DEVICE, FILENAME=filename, XSIZE=aspect.xsize, YSIZE=aspect.ysize, $ XOFFSET=aspect.xoffset, YOFFSET=aspect.yoffset, COLOR=1, $ ENCAPSULATED=Keyword_Set(encapsulated), Inches=aspect.inches, $ DECOMPOSED=1 ; Display the screen dump. Fill up the window. cgImage, screenDump DEVICE, /CLOSE_FILE SET_PLOT, thisDevice END
