Print Form Using Visual Basic PowerPack PrintForm?
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.

Use Printform And Print Text On Same Page?
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?
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?
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?

VS 2010 PrintForm And TabControl Tab Page : How To Print Tab Page
I have a tab control in my Main Form which has 2 tab pages, each of which are a different form. I create them as:

Dim UserManagementForm As New UserManagement()
Dim FileManagementForm As New FileManagement()

Then set them up via:

UserManagementForm.TopLevel = False
UserManagementForm.Parent = TabControl1.TabPages(0)
UserManagementForm.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None
UserManagementForm.Dock = DockStyle.Fill


I have a PrintForm component on my form and I am trying to send the currently active tab page to the print form and then send it to the appropriate dialog. However, I keep getting the document contains no images. Any ideas how I pass the tab page to the print form component?

VS 2010 PrintForm Prints The Form With 'blur' Labels?
I'm using PrintForm which comes with PowerPack to print a form with a couple of Labels into it.But the letters appear a little blur and not clear at all, bad quality, I tried by increasing the size of the labels but the result was the same.Under the PrintForm parameters I only found one that could be relevant, the papersize but that doesn't helped too.

VS 2010 Use Print Form Power To Print A Windows Form From Console?
trying to print a Form that I created using a VB.Net console application. My console application creates an instance of a Windows Form and fills it with data. I then created an instance of the Print Form class from the Microsoft Power Pack and am trying to get the form I filled with data to print but no matter what I've tried it just prints the command console window.

Dim firstPage As New FrontPage 'Windows Form
Dim pf As New PrintForm 'Print Form Power Pack
firstPage.Visible = True

Vb Mail Order - Calculating The Percentages - Print Button Allows The User To Print The Form
I have been able to do the exercise's in the first 2 chapters and half the exercise's in the third chapter of the text book (programming in visual basic 2008, Julia Case Bradley & Anita C. Millspaugh). but this one is making my head want to explode. please point me in the right direction with this.

Heres the problem. The company has instituted a bonus program to give its employees an incentive to sell more. For every dollar the store makes in a four-week period, the employees receive 2 percent of sales. The amount of bonus each employee receives is based upon the percentage of hours he or she worked during the bonus period (a total of 160 hours). The Calculate button will determine the bonus earned by this employee, and the Clear button will clear only the name, hours-worked, and bonus amount fields. A Print button allows the user to print the form. Do not allow missing or bad input data to cancel the program; instead display a message to the user.

Here's my code so far. its giving me the wrong results. i have tried many different ways,(hence the commented code) but I just dont know where im going wrong.

Public Class VB_Sales

Const BONUSHOURS As Decimal = 160

PowerPack 3 DataRepeater Not ASP.NET?
I am looking for help with the DataRepeater in VB.Net PowerPack 3. This is Windows development were talking about not ASP.Net. I am able to set it up for a single dataset but I actually want to nest another DataRepeater inside of it. Anyone have experience with that? Is is possible? I've done it with ASP.Net but I realize were talking two different animals here.In my testing the top level repeater seems to populate fields but the nested repeater shows up empty. Nothing in it. My data tier is using LINQ to SQL.[URL]..

PrintForm Using VB PowerPacks 3.0?
I'm have a program filled with forms for the user to enter data to determine fluid and reservoir properties. I want the ability to be able to print out the forms so they may be kept in binders. I'm using the PrintForm function from the Visual Basic PowerPacks but I'm having a problem getting some of the larger forms onto a single page. Is there anyway to zoom or autofit using this function? I've already tried adjusting the margins and that is not enough. I've been trying to look through the object browser but it hasn't worked very well yet.

Printform Error Using Powerpack3
I have created a windows application and it was working fine, then I added in the printform component from PowerPack3 and here the error starts. The application works fine on the computer I wrote it on, but when I move the exe over to another computer (which I have installed PP3 and the .net framework) I get an error. The only difference between the computer I am writing it on and trying to run it on, is that this computer has 2010 express edition installed. What do I need to do from here to get this working?

Using A Timer To Handle Printform
I'm tired of having my dropdownmenu come up in my printpreview and print, so I've decided to use a timer and a progress bar to wait a few seconds before the print or printpreview is started.[code]The problem I have is when I go to print or printpreview, it will work but the program stops debugging and tells me that the form has to be focused. What up with dat?

Forms :: VB - MDI - Application That Consists Of Mainly One Main Form - Ranging Form Graphs, Tables, Dropdown Boxes, Print Preview
I have to write an application that consists of mainly one main form, but several different things I wanna display. Pretty standard I guess. So there is a menu, some controls, and the main stuff below (ranging form graphs, tables, dropdown boxes, print preview, etc). I would like to use it like one would use frames in html, design an object that is limited to a box or panel that I define. The literature I have does not give me a clear idea of how to do this (yet). The most obvious seem to be the use of MDI, open a predefined form with no borders, maximize it before showing and remove all minimize/maximize options. But that does not work so well. The form inside the MDI parent does not fit the size that is given for it when it is loaded. e.g.


So my main question is: Is MDI the way to go here at all or are there better/easyer ways to achieve this? If MDI is the way to go, how do I sucessfully restrict a child form inside another object, without giving the user any opportunity to resize (i noticed that I have minnimize/maximize/close buttons, even if I disable them on the child forms themselves)

VS 2008 - Printdocument Of VS And The Printform Found In Powerpacks
I am printing my form by using the printdocument of VS and the printform found in powerpacks. I never got the preview to work so when ever I want to print I send my information on a new form (form1) which I have altered ( colour borders ) so it is printable. To print form1 I have added a toolstrip with a print button so when the user sees all is ok on the form1 he clicks on it which hides the toolstrip and prints form1. All this sequence works fine. The problem I have been getting lately is that I can print on the first try but when I call another form to print the toolstrip ( with the print button ) is always hidden. I have to exit the application and re enter to get it to show up. Any solution to this or even how to print in a better way. (have the preview to work for example ). I have tried to use printdialog to print but I have never been able to send the document to print.

VS 2008 - Using PrintToFile Method From PrintForm Class?
I'm trying to use PrintToFile from the Power Packs PrintForm Class and I have a question. I'm able to save the form to a file, but now how to print it later if needed. MSDN says that it's saved as an Encapsulated PostScript file. Adobe Illustrator claims it will open EPS file, but it won't open this one. How I can print this file in If you've never used this before, here is my sample code to save the form to file in case someone wants to test it out.

If SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
Me.PrintForm1.PrintFileName = SaveFileDialog1.FileName & ".eps"Me.PrintForm1.PrintAction = Printing.PrintAction.PrintToFile
End If
