[reportlab-users] Problem with renderPM.saveToFile; how to output .PNG?
Wed, 13 Aug 2003 23:55:39 -0400
I just installed reportlab today and I'm trying to create a simple
'hello world' type document, except I want the output to be in .png
format rather than .pdf. The graphics users guide says I can do
something like this:
from reportlab.graphics import renderPM
renderPM.saveToFile(mydrawing, 'mydrawing.png', 'PNG')
And that's all there ought to be to it! But when I try that, I get this error:
>>>renderPM.saveToFile(mydrawing, 'mydrawing.png', 'PNG')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'saveToFile'
What am I missing? What am I doing wrong?
I hope to use reportlab at work as a scriptable alternative to MS
PowerPoint; is anyone doing similar work?
Thanks for the help.
