I've created a pdf with the new printing library with the PdfDocument object.
I don't have de same result with different android version and different device.

The same program on a 5.x device got the android_5.pdf file and with a android 6.0 version got the android_6.pdf

Should I forgot something ?

Thanks in advance.

I've made a copy of the sub code if you need more, let me know.


Sub CreatePdf
    'Détermine le nombre de jour du mois
    nbrJour = DateUtils.NumberOfDaysInMonth(Special_code.MoisTextVersNum(spnMois.SelectedItem),spnAnnee.SelectedItem)
    posN = 1
    Do While posN <> nbrJour
        y= 20

    Dim out As OutputStream = File.OpenOutput(File.DirRootExternal,spnHoraire.SelectedItem & "_" & spnMois.SelectedItem & "_" & spnAnnee.SelectedItem & ".pdf", False)
    lblPrint.Text = Language.GetString("{0048}", "Create") & " " & spnHoraire.SelectedItem & "_" & spnMois.SelectedItem & "" & spnAnnee.SelectedItem & ".pdf"
End Sub

I have some problem;

My phone and my Android Tv card diffrent size result for text.

@lucdrb ; I think problem is not andriond version 5 or 6. Problem is screen size/screen resolutions what is your screen size and resolution each device.

I thinking each devices has different text size (dip). But, why pdf lib code diffrent size!!!
@Erel how can we create same char size on pdf page with different device?

I found a error in the code:
I put the
/ GetDeviceLayoutValues.Scale
after the Textsize instead of the x value and all is OK

Pdf.Canvas.DrawText(Language.GetString("{0036}", "Arrivée"),35,y,Typeface.DEFAULT_BOLD,15 / GetDeviceLayoutValues.Scale, Colors.Black,"LEFT")

Anyway, many thanks for your always valuable help

I see the problem. You need to divide the text size with GetDeviceLayoutValues.Scale:
Pdf.Canvas.DrawText(Language.GetString("{0036}", "Arrivée"),35 / GetDeviceLayoutValues.Scale,y,Typeface.DEFAULT_BOLD,8, Colors.Black,"LEFT")

Thank your for reply; I will update my code.
