I'm developing a program which should be able to print HTML documents, including images. But I can't find any appropriate function in VB. I know of the Printer.PaintPicture method, but I can't print a picture from the system, like this:

sPictureToPrint = "c:\images\me.gif"
Printer.PaintPicture sPictureToPrint, 50, 50

Just want to mention that HTML is not enough in this case. I can't use the built-in web controls in VB5. Among other things I need to enable page breaking.

You need to load the picture into a control *first*, then use the PaintPicture method

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("PARTY.GIF")
Printer.PaintPicture Picture1.Picture, 50, 50
