Hi hboys,  I already answered such a question, here it is :

                   The Page is defined as the pagenumber. So:

                   First page : QRPreview1.PageNumber := 1;
                   Next page : QRPreview1.PageNumber := QRPreview1.PageNumber + 1;
                   Previous : QRPreview1.PageNumber := QRPreview1.PageNumber -1;
                   Last : QRPreview1.PageNumber := QRPreview1.PageCount;

                   Use Zoom, ZomeToFit, ZoomToWidth to use zoom capabilities.

                   Go to PrintSetup for printersettins : QRPrinter1.PrintSetup.

                   Have fun,
                   c.u. ZifNab;
