Hi, I am just learning Visual Basic and working on my first program. I have a form whith text boxes on it. When I print, it prints the boxes as well. Is there a way to have them show yet not print? I want them on th eform so the user knows to input their data but I don't want them to print, only want the info contained in the box to print. I tried setting Visibility to False but then they don't show up on the form at all. Please help me out if you can, email me at developer@xtremeonline.com if possible. Thank you.

Just before the code you are using to print the form, change the visibility of the text boxes to false.  Alfter the code that prints has completed, change the visibilty back to a yes.  For example...

Private Sub cmdPrint_Click()
      txtbox1.visible = false
      txtbox2.visible = false
      form.printform
      txtbox1.visible = true
      txtbox2.visible = true
end sub

Actually, now I see what you are saying...   here is what you need to do.   For each textbox, create a label as well. Set  each label.visible to false.  When the user says to print, perform the following code.

Private Sub Print_Click()
    label1.caption = text1.text
    label2.caption = text2.text
    label1.top = text1.top
    label2.top = text2.top
       ' do the same for width, height and left...
   label1.visible = true
  label2.visible = true
  text1.visible = false
  text2.visible = false
form1.printform
   ' Now change the visible settings back to the original values...  
   '  i.e.  textboxes as visible and labels as invisible.

That should do what you want...

I don't understand. I made them false, then they don't show up at all. Thanks for a fast reply to my question.

I'll just keep trying, till something works.
