    Right now, we're converting our iPad app for the iPhone, but we came across a problem with the printing and emailing

    In our iPad App we have a sales order view, in which we screen capture the view into a PDF and print. but in the iPhone version, it captures the iPhone screen and when we print or email it the sales order is the size of the iPhone's screen.

    is scaling the only option? or can i show how populate and use the iPad's PrintingView through the iPhone?

    how has others solved this issue?

    I tried doing this with an app but ended up going the harder route and actually programmatically generating a pdf document.

    It might take more time, but it ends up looking a lot better, and is not resolution dependent.

    While it is possible to make views that are larger than the screen you'll get the best results from generating either pdf or html for emails.

    Thanks, for both replies.

    but if i do make a view that is larger than my screen (for temporary quicker solution than programmatically generating the PDF)

    in theory it shouldn't matter if its an 4", 3.5", 5.5", or a 5.7" screen correct?
