Problem


When applying the font underline attribute to a cell that contains blanks, the blanks are correctly underlined on the screen but not when print previewing them.
 


Cause


Unfortunately there is no solution because the Windows SDK ::TextOut() method works that way and we couldn't find a way to work around that problem.
 


Action


Try a simple view (no grid involved at all) with an underlined font selected into the DC and call TextOut().

You will see that this will not print underlined although it shows it correctly on the screen.
