Set you page length in the Printer Properties page to the length of the paper you're using.

You should have given this question 1 point, because 5 are too much for a simple answer like this.

I think you are the most generous person I ever met!
to remind you EASY question is considered in EE to be given 50 points, and what you say is that you barely want attention to your problem, this is what you'll get.

Anyway about the point. I'm new in VB so I don't know if this question was easy or hard. I thought that for the expert maybe this question will be just a little effort. I'm also willing to increase the point if you could give me a good answer. By the way, zivf, can you answer this question? If you REALLY can, how do you want the point to be? I could increase it if you could also give me the sample source code.

Thank you in advance.

Is that mean I have to change property every time I'm printing? Is there anyway to set it in my program.

I would answer u, but u must reject the current answer.
If u want to print draft text just open the PRN port as a file:
open "PRN" for output as #1 (or so)
then all u have to do is:
PRINT #1,"My string"
as much as u want
if u want to do a form feed just do:
PRINT #1, chr$(12)

You sould set the property in under Start/Settings/Printers. Once you've loaded the printer with continuous feed paper it will remain loaded no matter what program you run. Thus you set it at the control panel level instead of inside the program. Once set it should remain set. If you change papers, change the setting so the system stays in step with how you're actually using the printer.

mark,
and what if I want to change the paper's length to 10 meters?

mark2150Commented:
I don't know if the range on the paper size will go that high, but there's no logical reason why it won't work. Only problem is you're going to get 10M of paper feed every time to issue a page command!

It's your office! (grin) You can make as much confetti as you want.
