In the Std libraries that are supplied with gINT, we have configured the report forms to obtain your company information and logo from a block. Blocks are groups of entities that can be reused. Any change you make to a block is reflected in all the report forms that are referenced by it. Therefore, you will only need to place your logo in one block for it to appear on all the forms.
Select FileImport/ExportDXF Import. Navigate to the location of your DXF logo file and click Open. The program imports the file and displays it on the screen. You will control the size and placement properties of the logo when you place it.
Select FileNew or click the New button. In the dialog box that displays, enter a Name and if desired, a Description.
Click the browse button next to the Load Bitmap File field and navigate to your logo file. You can import any of the following image formats: JPG, BMP, TIF, PCX, PNG, PPM, or TGA. Click OK to import the file.
Note: If you have gINT Logs, the General Drawingstab does not appear.
From the options that appear on the lower right section of the screen, click Erase.
Select either the DrawGraphicsDiscrete Graphics or DrawGraphicsBitmap Symbol option, as appropriate:
Set the X and Y fields to “0”.
Click the browse button next to the Discrete Graphic or Bitmap Symbol field and select your logo.
Set Override Height to 0.9 (this equals the height of the square in the drawing). Set Override Horizontal Alignment to “Left” and Override Vertical Alignment to “Middle”.
For a Discrete Graphic, set the Design Mode Color (this setting does not affect the final output color) to “Very Light Blue” (this is a gINT standard; please feel free to use any color you wish).
For a Bitmap Symbol, check Show at design time. If unchecked, the logo is only displayed on the form when it is previewed or printed.
Click OK to place the logo.
If the width of your logo is significantly larger than its height, it will overlap the Company Information text. To correct this, you need to change the logo height or width and/or the X property of the Company Information text entity. To display an entity’s properties, double-click on the desired entity.
