Please refer to the Printing from a FireMonkey Application topic for more information regarding printing in FireMonkey applications.


void __fastcall TMyForm::PrintButtonClick(TObject *Sender)
  TRectF SrcRect, DestRect;
  TPrinter *Printer = Printer;

  /* Set the default DPI for the printer. The SelectDPI routine defaults
	 to the closest available resolution as reported by the driver. */
  Printer->ActivePrinter->SelectDPI(1200, 1200);

  /* Set canvas filling style. */
  Printer->Canvas->Fill->Color = claBlack;
  Printer->Canvas->Fill->Kind = TBrushKind(1);

  /* Start printing. */

  /* Set the Source and Destination TRects. */
  SrcRect = Image1->LocalRect;
  DestRect = TRectF(0, 0, Printer->PageWidth, Printer->PageHeight);

  /* Print the picture, on all the surface of the page and all opaque. */
  Printer->Canvas->DrawBitmap(Image1->Bitmap, SrcRect, DestRect, 1);

  /* Finish the printing job. */
