Graphics functions (metafiles)

A metafile is a device independent representation for graphics images. You need to open a metafile if you use either DO_COPIES@ or PRINT_GRAPHICS_PAGE@ to print a graphics image (an example appears in Using a metafile to print multiple copies).

CLOSE_METAFILE@

Closes a previously opened metafile.

DO_COPIES@

Produces multiple printer copies using a metafile.

METAFILE_TO_CLIPBOARD@

Sends a metafile to the clipboard.

OPEN_METAFILE@

Records graphics sequences so that they can be replayed to the printer.

PLAY_CLIPBOARD_METAFILE@

Plays a clipboard metafile on the current drawing surface.

PRINT_GRAPHICS_PAGE@

Prints a drawing surface using a metafile.
