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.
I have form with text boxes that are collecting data from access database.Now I want to print this, but selectively.I know how to print whole form using PrintForm PowerPack. But I want to print only labels and text from text box.
I try to use printForm from powerpack , but is doesnot have fit size function. I use the following code to print , using setResolution to set the size to fit A4 paper. But I cannot print the scrollable area. 1) If using such approach, how can I print scrollable area2) With PageSetupDiaDialog, how can i set to default orientation to Landscape. I use pageSetupDialog.PageSetting.Landscapte = true, but there is error when it runs
Public Function calculatePrintPageNumber(ByVal form As Form, ByVal panelsize As Size) As Int32 Dim panelHeight As Integer = panelsize.Height Dim formHeight As Integer = form.Height Return System.Math. Abs(formHeight[code]....
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?
i am working on Scrollable form, when i am trying to print this form with PrintForm object its printing only the showing part not all the form this the code which am using. Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click Me.PrintForm1.Print(Me, PowerPacks.Printing.PrintForm.PrintOption.Scrollable) End Sub

I have a form which i need to print, however, I need to know how to format it, margins, etc... I've got it to work by adding the PrintForm powerpack and using the simple code below, but the margins are too big and it is not printing the rich text box I have.[code]....
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)
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.
I've been trying to print out a text string to a printer that I have connected. I cannot print using the PrintDocument.Print() as this sends the string as a graphic to the printer.I don't know C# and I am very new to full fledged VB having spent most of my time using VBA in Excel
I'd like to know how to print a form to printer without using the vb powerpack. Also, I'd like for the users of my program to be able to save a copy of the form to a jpeg file. I'm using Visual Basic Express Edition 2008.
Okay guys this is my first thread as well as my first dive into programming. So my question is, I want to have this design on my form that would fade from blue to black, and I have no idea how to do this. So picture a form thats blue and when you look
I am trying to display *.rpt file in visual basic submit form, how would I do that? I have Report2.rpt and Form1.vb, I like to call Report2.rpt when submit button is clicked, it will then show the report on screen.Private Sub SubmitButton_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SubmitButton.Click.[code]And also how do I get the date to be queried in my crystal report, I don't want all records, I just want the records in between fromDate and toDate.
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?
