CDC::CreateDC

Creates a device context for the specified device.

BOOL CreateDC( 
   LPCTSTR lpszDriverName, 
   LPCTSTR lpszDeviceName, 
   LPCTSTR lpszOutput, 
   const void* lpInitData  
);

lpszDriverName

Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the filename (without extension) of the device driver (for example, "EPSON"). You can also pass a CString object for this parameter.

lpszDeviceName

Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the name of the specific device to be supported (for example, "EPSON FX-80"). The lpszDeviceName parameter is used if the module supports more than one device. You can also pass a CString object for this parameter.

lpszOutput

Points to a null-terminated string that specifies the file or device name for the physical output medium (file or output port). You can also pass a CString object for this parameter.

lpInitData

Points to a DEVMODE structure containing device-specific initialization data for the device driver. The Windows DocumentProperties function retrieves this structure filled in for a given device. The lpInitData parameter must be NULL if the device driver is to use the default initialization (if any) specified by the user through the Control Panel.

Nonzero if the function is successful; otherwise 0.

The PRINT.H header file is required if the DEVMODE structure is used.

Device names follow these conventions: an ending colon (:) is recommended, but optional. Windows strips the terminating colon so that a device name ending with a colon is mapped to the same port as the same name without a colon. The driver and port names must not contain leading or trailing spaces. GDI output functions cannot be used with information contexts.
