Set Custom Papersize To Printer From Code In .net 2005?

Mar 11, 2010

we have a vb.net windows appliacation that uses sql server as backend. we have created all reports for this application using crystal report that is embedded in visual studio 2005. everything is working fine except the reports specially which needs to be displayed is custome mode. we have used some code to dynamically set the printer settings because at runtime the original printer settings are unknown and we don't want to let user set printer settings manually everytime before taking the printout. so the question is, how to set a custom papersize programactically. here is the code snippet that we have used to set some printer settings in runtime :-

rpt.PrintOptions.PrinterName = Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("DefaultPrinter")
rpt.PrintOptions.PaperOrientation = PaperOrientation.Landscape
rpt.PrintOptions.PaperSize = PaperSize.PaperFanfoldUS

we have usedreportdocument object to set printer options. we have two rpts which need to displayed in custom paper format. the formats are like 9X6 and 14X12. we have created these formats in server properties. now how to to set this from code? like in place of rpt.PrintOptions.PaperSize = PaperSize.PaperFanfoldUS...some sort of syntax which will let us to put the papersize in place ofPaperSize.PaperFanfoldUS...

created by the code, is not changed but it is changing height and width as custom paper i have given in the code. But still it's printable area remains the same as previous paper

VS 2005 - Throw An Exception When Print To The Printer Using The PrintDocument

Oct 29, 2009

When I print to the printer, using the PrintDocument, I want it to be able to throw an exception if there is a problem. Currently, if I print to a printer that has a jam, is offline, or doesn't even exist, VB still thinks it printed fine. I never get an error. How can I have the printer report back to my program so that if I print to a printer that doesn't even exist, it wont let me do it? I just tried adding a LPT1 printer to my computer (and there is no local printer). I called it some random printer and installed some random driver. Then used my program to print to that printer and never got an error.

Printer Stuff - Detect If My Printer Is Busy ?

Mar 18, 2011

1. Detect if my printer is busy, because my code tells the printer to print more pages that it can cope with, so I need to delay the command for 'Print the next page' until the printer has finished printing the previous one.

2. Shift the output to my printer so that it gets printed in it's entirety on the paper, instead of seemingly being anchored to some nebulous point on the A4 page. It starts printing at X = 29mm from the left edge, and Y is 28mm from the top, and stops at X = 22mm from the right edge and Y stops at 22mm from the bottom edge, leaving (aprox) 50mm of X and 50mm of Y unprinted.

3. Get useful information on Bounds, which I'm fairly certain is what I need to control where my printing should start and finish.

I've hunted through this forum, MSDN, 'Help' (a misnomer if ever there was one) the VB Library and one or two other forums, which either baffle me with reams of code or suggest code to try which either just don't work or which doesn't declare all the variables and usually don't suggest what type of variable I need, it's all very frustrating

[2005] Custom Scroll Bar For MDI Parent?

Oct 15, 2008

i have a MDI Parent. As you know a MDI parent can have scroll bars. I want to make customized scroll bars. Meaning instead of windows default scroll bars i want just to images / buttons (arrows (up/down)) that when clicked will scroll up and down, and then others for left and right...

How do i do this? I dont want windows default scroll bars to appear.. i know can disable them but then is there a property / method to scroll in a direction, let my code do the work.... i would also then want it so as you scroll my custom scroll buttons wont go away, as you scroll they should stay in the same spot.. i think i can do that by a panel and docking, so that isnt important.

Asp.net - Can Linq2sql Do This Without A Lot Of Custom Code?

Jan 13, 2009

how to make linq2sql behave like my custom code used to, I want to check to make sure that it isn't already "built" in behavior that I can just use by setting up the relationships right in the designer...

Very simple example: I have two tables: Person and Notes, with a 1 to many relationship (1 Person, many notes), linked by Person.ID->Note.PersonID.

I have a stored procedure (all data access is done via SP's and I plan on continuing that) which makes the Link2SQL a bit more work for me.

sp_PersonGet(@ID int) which returns the person record and sp_PersonNotesGet(@PersonID) which returns a set of related notes for this person.So far so good, I have an object:

Dim myPerson As Person = db.PersonGet(pnID).Single

and I can access my fields: myPerson.Name, myPerson.Phone etc.and I can also do a

Dim myNotes As Notes = db.PersonNotesGet(pnID)

to get a set of notes and I can iterate thru this list like:

For Each N As Note In myNotes
( do something)
Next[code].....

Basically, Linq2SQl would need to call 2 stored procedures each time a Person record is created...Is this doable "out of the box", or is this something I need to code around for myself?

VS 2005 - Creating Array Of Custom Controls?

Nov 6, 2009

I am creating an array of customer controls by doing the following:
Dim CtlLosArray(150) As Control

Then I'm setting up the first control in the array like this:
CtlLosArray(1) = New ShieldLOSInfobox
CtlLosArray(1).Location = New Point(0, 0)
CtlLosArray(1).Visible = True
CtlLosArray(1).Show()
CtlLosArray(1).Name = "Label1"
Me.pnlLOS.Controls.Add(CtlLosArray(1))

Now on this custom control I have a panel and a few text boxes and as you can see I may be adding about 150 of these custom controls. What I am wanting to do is to be able to access that control then the item on that control based on the array. Something like the following:
CtlLosArray(1).Controls.Item(Panel1).backcolor = Color.Yellow
But the above does not work. How I can access a specific item on the customer control within the array?
