Print Form Using Visual Basic PowerPack PrintForm?

Jan 20, 2011

I have created a form that we use for our employee goal setting. I would like to let the users print the form. The form is quite large and has scroll bars. I am trying to use the Printform to print the form. I would like to use autofit or some other type of scaling to get the form to fit on one page. I have done some looking aroung and have seen the following instrutions a couple of times.

1.Drag a PrintForm component onto the Form from the Visual Studio Toolbox

2.Set the PrintForm.BodyContainer property to reference your Form

3.Drag a PrintPreviewDialog component onto your Form from the Visual Studio Toolbox

4.Set the PrintPreviewDialog.Document property to reference the PrintForm component

5.Add a button and button click handler. In the handler call PrintPreviewDialog.ShowDialog()

I don't know how to set the PrintForm.BodyContainer propery (number 2). I am using Visual Basic 2010 express.

Cannot Print Form In Landscape Orientation In Visual Basic 5.0

Jul 18, 2009

I have Visual Basic 5.0 and need to print the full form in landscape mode.  My form has lines,textboxes, and labels that need to be printed as they are on the screen.  I understand that printform.print does not respond to changing to landscape orientation.  I have tried the paint picture method, but did not like the quality of the text.  I have also tried having a common dialog box before printing and even set the default to landscape, but the form still printed in portrait.  Is there a way that I can print my form in landscape mode in Visual Basic 5.0?

Use Printform And Print Text On Same Page?

Jul 2, 2009

I have a form that I am using "PrintForm" to print out, however there is a notes section that can contain a lot of text, seeing as the Printform function only takes a bitmap of the form, it cuts off the text. I have another function that will print the contents of a textbox - I'd like to display this below the bitmap.

First is the code for printing the bitmap - second the textbox

PrintForm1.PrinterSettings.DefaultPageSettings.Margins = New System.Drawing.Printing.Margins(0, 0, 0, 0)
PrintForm1.Print(Me, PowerPacks.Printing.PrintForm.PrintOption.Scrollable)

Printform Print Differently On Different Screen Sizes?

Jul 22, 2009

I am creating a program that I would like to distribute. I am using printform in VB 2008 to print my form. My form is the size of my computer screen...15 in. If the program is run on a different computer with a different screen size, will it affect the appearance of the form on the screen or the printing of the form? If the form is run on a laptop, for example, with a smaller screen, will it cut off my form and thus cut off the form during printing? Will a bigger screen increase the size of the form and not allow it to fit correctly when printed? I was just curious and wondering.

Render A Powerpack RectangleShape At Runtime To A Form?

May 8, 2009

The generation of the shape is controlled at runtime by data read from a file to set all the properties I care about e.g. Size, Location, Color, BorderWidth etc. Now, I would like to render it on a form. This should be trivial, but I can't just add it as a control so something different must be done...

Dim rc As RectangleShape
rc = New RectangleShape
rc.Location = New Point(100, 100)
rc.Size = New Point(150, 150)

Do I need to create some container on the form first, am I missing one of the commands to cause it to draw and/or connect it to a specific form, something else?

Print A Windows Form In Visual Studio 2010?

May 3, 2010

Is it easier to print a VB.net windows form in Visual Studio 2010?

I have been struggling with this - the PrintForm utility in the Powerpack only prints the displayed portion of the current form. 

I spent a lot of time creating a process which loops through each control on my form, converts to a bitmap, and drops it on the print document, only to finally discover that the RichTextBox control (which I used extensively) does not include a functional DrawToBitmap method.

I have already researched various ways of managing this, but if VS2010 will do it without jumping through the hoops then I'll spring for it like the sucker I am.

I can do this in Access and VB6, I believe, so I don't think this is an unreasonable expectation.

Find The First Record On Form From A Combobox In Visual Basic 2010

Jul 14, 2010

This is well documented and easy to accomplish in Access, but how does one accomplish this in Visual Basic 2010 on a form designed in Visual Studio that is bound to a SQL Server database?

The idea is to create a combobox that holds 2 columns - a primary key value and a unique value such as a [Company Name] or a [Student Name]. The user would then find the appropriate record within the combobox and the code behind the combobox control would then perform a .findfirst method that would NOT filter out all other records, but would rather use selectedvalue primary key column value to move to the selected record.

I am currently getting into VS 2010 & revisiting VB having been programing in ACCESS & VBA for years. In the Access/VBA environment it is very common to have to find a given record on a given form using this method, but it would appear to be poorly documented if in fact not commonly used in the VB.NET/VS community.
