Hi !

you may try create a picturebox and set the visible to false.
then write the following code:

Private Const SRCCOPY = &HCC0020 ' (DWORD) dest = source

Private Declare Function BitBlt Lib "gdi32" _
    (ByVal hDestDC As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, _
    ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal hSrcDC As Long, _
    ByVal xSrc As Long, ByVal ySrc As Long, ByVal dwRop As Long) As Long

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Picture1.Width = Form1.Width
    Picture1.Height = Form1.Height
    BitBlt Picture1.hDC, 0, 0, Form1.Width, Form1.Height, _
            Form1.hDC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY
    Printer.PaintPicture Picture1.Image, 0, 0
End Sub

Hi Sendoh

You again :-)

OK, I will try what you suggested.
Do you believe VB can not print out the .ocx controls in a form by PrinForm?

Cheers.

Yes !! I'd tried it out already.
Somehow it just can't printout the custom ocx control.
I've got some addition comment, If you need to print the form border as well, then you had to
       parentHwnd = getParent(form1.hwnd)
       parentDC = getDC(parentDC)
       BitBlt picture1.hdc, 0, 0, Form1.Width, _
               Form1.Height, parentDC, startX, startY, SRCCOPY

Note: startX and startY are the screen coordinate for form1.

Hi Sendoh

Thank you for your added comment.

>Yes !! I'd tried it out already.

My English is not very good :-) When you say "Yes", do you mean "PrintForm can not print the .ocx controls in the printer"?

Happy Xmas.
