Printing Of Multiple Pages Is Simple Enough Utilising The Printdocument?

Nov 12, 2009 printing of multiple pages is simple enough utilising the Printdocument. Previewing the pages via the PrintPreviewDialog control is also simple enough.BUT Whereas the doc.print() will cause all pages to be printed stat - the Print button on the PrintPreviewDialog control calls the printPage handler one more time before printing.As all pages have been laid into the document this extra call to the printPage causes only a blank page to be printed. defeat the PrintPreviewDialog call to the handler? - Other than building, previewing and printing each page as a separate job!

Printing Multiple Pages?

Jun 2, 2010

I want to print multiple pages with So I have al my data in 2 lists, containing objects ( let's call them list1 and list2). e.g I have in list1 all the kind of cars and in list2 all the available types of those cars. So he first loops through list1 and then looks in list2 which types are linked to the kind. The amount of types per kind of car is unknown. Now I want to print the whole list. He first puts the kind of car. Then I have to write every type of car vertically under each other... So I need to construct a function that checks whether I'm at the end of my page to hit a hasMorePages = true .

I was already wondering if I can print it first all on a image and then I take blocks of that image and put them on different pages.

Printing Multiple Pages From A Listbox?

May 13, 2010

I have been trying to print multiple pages from a listbox. This is the code I have been trying to get to work. It prints the entire contents of listbox6, which is good but it only prints on one page and the text overlaps once it starts to print from the top of the page again.

Private Sub PrintDocument3_PrintPage(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs) Handles PrintDocument3.PrintPage
Dim lpp As Integer
Dim lno As Integer


All I need to do is print the entire contents of listbox6 whether it has 1 page of data or 19 pages of data.

Printing Multiple Pages Using Class And E.HasMultiplePages?

Oct 9, 2009

Problem: code prints different (in fact, a random number, less than or equal to number of pages needed) number of pages and thus lines overlapping. And I can't find out what is causing it. Working in Visual Studio 2008, .NET 3.5, WinXP, Visual Basic. Code is in a class, loaded form the MainScreen form, which' instance is passed through.

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Drawing.Printing
Imports System.Windows.Forms


Tried to avoid using 'AddHandler' by using 'PrintDocument1_Printpage [..] handles PrintDocument.PrintPage but kept getting this error saying I needed to do something with Friends WithEvent handling. Can't figure it out :-(Update: noticed the following behaviour: when the command 'print' is given the first time, everything works out fine. The next time, the page sub is executed twice as many times as there are pages, and the third time three times as many, and so on. So first time printing works fine, second is screwed, and so on.

Printing Multiple Pages When Print Job Is Dynamic?

Jan 27, 2012

I am migrating over to VB2008 and I get it except for printing. I can print but I have lost a lot of the methods to print dynamically and I need to know the secret not to pull my hair out doing this. These are the circumstances I need to fill:1. Multiple Document Interface (Parent Document) holding multiple forms.2. Each will print from their own form page but this is the scenario I am trying to accomplish which I did rather well in VB6:Dynamic page length. As it runs through the data and deciding what needs to be printed. All print statements are mapped. currenty =y currentx = x.

a. Calls private sub HEADER to print header (eg store name address) resets currenty= 0

b. Calls private sub BODY based on selections answered. Not answered then omitted.if currenty > 9 inches and you are not done then call private sub TRAIL then HEADER and continue in the BODY recheck for currenty >9 inches and not done printing

c. Calls TRAIL to finish off.

Now I have been able to do all this using the Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 statement but that is using the old methods and may or may not be usable in 64 bit mode processing.When I use the printdocument.print() method , everything must be handled inside of the printdocument events. Going out of the routine to call another section causes the document to end and start a new page. Since gosub routines are not allowed, it is almost impossible to jump around to make this run properly. Am I missing something???? Can I form the document in different subroutines and pass a completed page to the printer with graphics??

I can do this by constructing the document in a picture box sending all the print commands go to an image the old VB had a more stable image container that did not disappear if minimized or another window openened over it by auto-redraw. I thought about saving it as a .jpg and them printing but that is still just crazy. There has to be a simple way of constructing multiple pages that I am just missing.

Critical Printdocument Printing?

Aug 25, 2009

I have a program that prints using the printdocument control. How do I check for errors in the program. Sometimes the program prints ok, sometimes the print does not print at all or give any feedback about the status of the print.

Bireirectional printing is enabled on the printer.

The program prints barcoded orders to a barcode label printer. The supplier's only cue to supply is the printed barcode label. I can see in the program that the orders are getting queued, and at certain intervals a timer runs to update each available order's status to "printed".As far as I am aware, there is no "Error" event of the printdocument control, and the printing is an asynchronous operation. So how should I check?

Printing Coordinates For RTL Using The PrintDocument?

Sep 20, 2009

I'm sending a rtl text "Arabic" to a receipt printer. My problem is in selecting left and top coordinates for each line. If the paper width changes the whole procedure needs to be written for that specific width, because I'm measuring form the left edge. Is there a way in the printDocument object that flips the starting point from left to right?

p.s. the format string in the args.Graphics.DrawString() only select the direction of the printed string in case it has some numbers and symbols but it doesn't start the string from the right edge of the page.

IDE :: Saving PrintDocument As A Word Document File Rather Than Printing It?

Feb 7, 2009

I am using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition under Window XP.I am able to generate a document that I can preview and print on my printer using PrintDocument1_PrintPage and PageSetupDialog1.ShowDialog() without problems.I would like to be able to save the document as a file that could eventually be printed with a Word Processing program such as MS Word or other Word Processor.I have added a PrintDialog to my form and have set the folowing:

PrintDialog1.Document = PrintDocument1 PrintDialog1.AllowPrintToFile = TruePrintDialog1.PrintToFile =

When I run it, I get a Dialog Box with a "Print to File" checkbox that is checked. I do not seem to be able to specify a file name or location. When I click the "Print" button, I don't get any error messages and the dialog box just closes. I can't find anywhere that the file is saved.

Print Preview Not Printing All Pages

Jan 2, 2011

I have a small program written in VB10 that allows me to enter checks and then print a deposit slip. The maximum number of checks per printed page is 32 so if I enter more than 32 two pages will print. I send the output to print preview and then,
if everything looks OK, I will print from there. If there are two pages to print all the pages show up in print preview. However when I print, only the last page prints. I am printing two copies so I have one for the deposit and one for my records. One page prints fine: I get two copies of the page. If I have two pages to print then I get two copies of page two.

Printing Range Of Pages With PrintDialog?

Aug 18, 2005

In my code I have a PrintDialog that allows the user to select a page range to print (the AllowSomePages property is set to true), but when a range is selected (ex: pages 2-3) in the dialog it still print all the pages in the document. I've been following the API documentation as well as articles/tutorials online but I still can't get it to work. Multiple copies print fine. Print to File works fine. Just the page range doesn't work.

I've tried manually setting the ToPage and FromPage members in the PrintDocument's PrinterSettings and DefaultPrinterSettings members as well as in the PrintDialog's PrinterSettings member. I've also set the MinimumPages and MaximumPages in each one with no success.

Here's some test code I've been trying to solve the problem with (...well the latest version anyway). The code is on a WinForm with one button (Button2).

Printing ListView As Simple Report

Dec 29, 2009

I am using following code for printing Listview items in vb 2008:
#Region "Print related declarations"
Protected WithEvents pd As Printing.PrintDocument 'used by Print sub
Protected Ratio As Single = 0, CurrRow As Integer = 0
#End Region
#Region "Simple Printing of ListView"
''' <summary>
''' Print the List view as a simple report
[Code] .....

The code is working fine except a few requirements:
a) The lines at the end of listview " Net Amount, Paid Amout and Balance" need some adjustments. Like upto 45 records of listview these lines are displayed perfectly on one page. When the number of records are 46, only NetAmount and PaidAmount are displayed and when the number of records are 47 only NetAmount is displayed. I think I have a problem in the code segment of HasMorePages. How I can limit that the three lines of " Net Amount, Paid Amount and Balance" are displayed on first page correctly.

b) How I can add a footer to the print preview to display number of pages in the format 1 of 1, 1 of 2 and so on.
