I am looking to print invioce numbers on stationary. So, for example, the invoice number is located in cell I1 of the excel spread sheet and starts at 100600. I want to print 150 invoices with the invoice number going up by 1 in each increment. So, I have thus far written:
What i need to achieve as you can now see is that the macro picks up the invoice number and does this however many times (or however many invoices I want to print.
3107.DGV Print in VB2008.zip For some time I have looked ways of using a datagridview to create an invoice and print it on paper. I know that I am not the only one who wants to do this. I have seen many requests for help over the years but no solutions. The creation of the invoice in VB was relatively easy but printing it to paper presented a huge challenge. What I am presenting here is a cut down version of an invoice program to illustrate the printing of a datagrisview rather than the whole invoice project.Printing a datagridview is hard work. There is no luxury of WYSIWYG.There have been a few items on the various VB help web sites on how to print a datagridview but I, as a novice programmer, had difficulty following the code. The last one that I found and could use is:
I would suggest you download the project from this site and take a look at it as I removed much of the code that did not apply to what I wanted in my invoice. Please also note that this Code Project download prints the contents of a database and you cannot modify the DGV contents. I have made a slight modification to the print code to cater for blank or empty cells. If this is not done, the print stops at the first empty cell in the datagridview even if there is more data further down the grid - a very real situation in an invoice where lines could be left blank for clarity.
There are a few other points worth noting. FormMain is the form containing the invoice layout and is the project start form. This is done deliberately as the print sequence needs to use Form1. I have not yet found out why. Some of the buttons, tick boxes and radio buttons on the PrintOptions form do not work and are not required for this demonstration. The PrintDGV code is based on the original Code Project download. I needed a starting point and the code has been extensively modified to meet the invoice layout requirements. To save time during developing the print code, I hard coded the invoice number and customer name and address text boxes on FormMain. This information was inserted in the properties window under "Text" for the text boxes. I also hard coded the name and address of the business initiating the invoice in the PrintDGV code. I have yet to find a way of giving the end user the opportunity to create their own company name and address on another form and have it automatically inserted in the print code.
Besides just being able to print a datagridview, I have looked at what each part of the code does and I have made comments in the hope that it will make it easier for the reader to understand and learn. Although my invoice is designed to be only one page long, I have left the code at the end of the print sequence to show how multiple pages can be used.
To understand what I have done, I suggest you download the zipped file, unzip it to a folder of your choice and run it. You will see a datagridview with 16 rows of text and numbers representing goods sold. (These have been hard coded in the MainForm_Load sub routine. Removing or commenting out some of this data will leave blank cells in the DGV but the whole thing will still print.) Press the "Print" button to show the "Print Options" form. Leave all the controls in their default state and click "OK". This will take you to the "Print Preview" form where you can see what will be printed. If you want to actually use paper and ink, press the printer icon on the "Print Preview" page. The 3 check boxes in the checkedlistbox on the "Print Options" form allows you to remove columns from the printed form. I will be using this facility in the finished product as some of the new columns in the DGV will be for internal use and calculating the totals only. No totals have been shown at the bottom of the invoice to keep the demonstration as simple as possible.A future project will show how to print an invoice using a database for the items sold - a more practical application. There are some differences in the code in FormMain - mainly how to set the form to take 16 line items even if only 2 or 3 lines are used.
I'm trying to figure out the best and or easiest way to print to a pre-formatted invoice form so that my data lines up with the appropriate fields on the invoice. I've looked at PrintForm from the Power Packs, but it doesn't print a full 8 1/2 x 11 page that I can tell. I was thinking about storing the data to a text file and printing the text file, but I know there are going to be problems if I use hard spaces inbetween the text. Is there a way to use some kind of absolute positioning to line up my data? If so, how would I go about doing that?
im having problem creating an invoice. on my form ive layed out text boxs,listboxs etc in the correct order. i do not want to print out the whole form, but just how the layout is and containing the information in the labels etc.
my program is working perfectly fine the only problem is i just cant print it!! i managed to print the subheadings, eg price,name,quantity etc . i want to be able to print the contents of the listboxs under the correct heading. does anyone know a way to go about this?
I generate a print preview, the only thing is, if there is enough data to fill like 2-3 pages I don't know how to generate a new page. It only fills the first page and that's it....
Private Doc As New PrintDocument() Private Sub btnPrint_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrint.Click[code].....
most of the code it's just pulling data from database and printing necessary charges to the invoice, but if the invoice is more than 1 page then I don't know what to do because it only generates 1 page.
"Create a class called Invoice that a hardware store might use to represent an invoice for an item sold at the store. An Invoice should include four pieces of information as instance variables--a part number (type String), a part description (type String), a quantity of the item being purchased (type Integer) and a price per item (Type Integer). Your class should have a constructor that initialize for each of the four instance variables. Provide a property for each instance variable. If the quantity is not positive it should be set to zero. If the price per item is not positive it should be set to zero."
I attached the code I have. obj is underlined and says "Argument not specified for parameter 'Invoice4' of the 'Public Sub New (Invoice1 As Object, Invoice2 As Object, Invoice3 As Object, Invoice4 As Object)' and so the program won't run. What am I doing wrong?
Public Class Form1
Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Dim obj1 As New Invoice(Val(TextBox1.Text)) TextBox1.Text &= obj1.Invoice1 & vbNewLine TextBox1.Text &= obj1.Invoice2 & vbNewLine TextBox1.Text &= obj1.Invoice3 & vbNewLine TextBox1.Text &= obj1.Invoice4 & vbNewLine
In our VB.Net application, we print a no. of documents (pre-printed forms); Since the formats of these forms vary client to client, we want to provide an option for client to adjust the alignment while printing. Is there an option which will enable the user to move a data element (that is printed) up / down / right / left so that the alignment comes out correctly without calling for the help of programmer?
I'm very very very new to VB.Net and am doing a class project. I want the user to simply clicka print button and get a printout of an existing Word document. Is this possible and if so, can someone suggest the code?
I was given an assignment to "write a program to print only even numbers between 6 and 16 using events", but I don't even know where to begin. The main thing I am having difficulty with understanding in this assignment is how I am supposed to specify that it only print even numbers in the given range of numbers.
Am I going to have to do a Mod2 code for each individual number and have it exclude any with the result of 1? Or is there another piece of code specifically designed for such an occassion? Perhaps there is some type of equation I can have the program read in terms of a variable, which holds the values of 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16? I am just genuinely confused on how this is supposed to be programmed.
I'm making a simple little program. It's going to save the image in the clipboard (from pressing Print Screen) to the folder that the .exe is in. My problem is trying to find out how to save the image file with a user-specified name, such as "Image", then adding numbers to it. So it would be like Image_00001, Image_00002, etc. I would like to make the name be specified using a textbox (pretty easy). I know how to get it to save as different image formats and all, and I know how to get it to save as a hardcoded name in a hardcoded location, but that it isn't what I'm aiming for. If you've ever used the screenshot function of Fraps or MSI Afterburner, then that's basically what I'm trying to make here.
I've already searched these forums and did some Googling, but couldn't find anything that I was looking for. Not even a sample program with something like this. I found something in the CodeBank, but it's all the stuff I've already gotten implemented.
I am exporting data from vb.net to excel and it is dropping the leading zero when its displayed on excel. How can I avoid the dropping of leading zero? I read the solution of adding a single quote but it makes my excel sheet column ugly. Also users will complain if they see a single quote on zip code field.vb.net code
adding a single quote or manipulating excel sheet with column formatter (general/numbers ) etc. I don't want user to make any changes on excel to get the display properly when the excel is displayed from web page it should be all set with proper formatting. also we have no control over client excel software?
Dim exlapp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application Dim xlWorkBook_new As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook Dim strOriginal As String strOriginal = Server.MapPath(Request.ApplicationPath & "/Attachments/") & "abc.xls" xlWorkBook_new = exlapp.Workbooks.Open(strOriginal)
The code hangs in the last line. It works fine in the development environment. i deployed in windows server 2000 ,where I get this issue. the browser goes half way and throws the below exception after some time
I have set the identity impersonate to true in web config. This should be mostly an access rights issue.I have even provided access rights for the "everyone " user in the excel file and as well for the interop component. Please post ur valuable comments.
I have one excel sheet which has ontime event of 5 mins to run some code.This code works fine when in debugging mode. But if I lock my PC or minimize excel windows and start working something else, this code just pauses at beginning and as soon as I activate excel window, this code runs.this code involves opening and closing of one userform and i think userform is culprit.
I have been trying to make a problem, that allows me to open a excel worksheet into the datagridview, and then print the datagridview out. However, the code that I'm using now to import the excel worksheet into the datagridview, doesn't import the images from the excel worksheet.[code]Is it possible to get the correct posttion of each table, and the images, so if i print the datagridview out, it look just like the excel worksheet, but was just edited before printing.
I have a list of names in Excel and wish to print name badges from this list.There is a second line of information to be printed under the name. The only label producing software I have is MS Word.I am programming in VB in Office 2007.
