Well, here's a Basic Question.

I have a window that displays a Picture Resource. I want the picture to 
print.

With the Print routine I've been using for text, I change a few things 
and, after calling _RouteToPrinter, I merely call Picture  Field 
1,%gPictRsrc%, then _RouteToScreen.

When I run the program and select the Print routine from the File Menu, 
everything works OK to the point where it says it is Spooling the 
Document, which it does forever without doing anything. Fortunately, for 
the time being, I can still access the File Menu>Quit,  to get out of 
this. If I substitute  Print "something" for the Picture Field 
statement, it prints the "something", but ONLY after I Quit the program, 
since the Spooling Dialog never closed until then.

Interesting. This is the first time I've tried to print a picture.

TIA,

Joe Wilkins
