Printing

I have a simple form with a data base attached.  I have a group of labels and TDbedit boxes that I would like to print, but I can not find any documentation on how to print this form to the print. I can get the print dialog box to come up but when I press the ok button, the print dialog boxes disappears and nothing is printed. ???

The best and easiest way to print anything in Delphi is to use teh Including version of Quickreports.  It is not 'necessary' to use quickreport - but why invent the wheel?

Don't know what version of Delphi your using, but teh general steps are as follows.
 1  Create a new form, click the quickreports tab and select the Qreport icon (should be teh first one).  The form should turn white.
 2  Add a few quickreport DBText fields to the new form
 3 Either add a datasource & table to the new form or connect teh dbtext fields mentioned above to the datasource in your existing form (add it to your uses clause)
 4  Set the qreport properties and set the tables to active.
 5  Call the new form from a button/menu item in your existing form and use the Qreport.print method.

This is really, really high level, but it should give you a general idea and enough to get started.  The is a QuickReport manual somewhere in your Delphi directory (different places for different versions)  Good Luck!  Any questions, please add a comment.
