That can be useful, but it converts the screen to an image in a picture object. If you have small type or other fine detail, it becomes harder to read on the printout.

Its sometimes useful to write your routines which do the drawing in such a way that they can accept a parameter to specify a target object - ie a form, picture box, or the printer object.

Most of the drawing/print methods available for picture boxes and forms also work with printers, so you can use the same rountines to print both to screen and to printer.

ie

private sub DrawBox(x1 as integer, y1 as integer, x2 as integer, y2 as integer, target as any)

   target.line (CX * F1, CY * F1)-(CX * F2, CY * F2), , BF

end sub

I agree with paulstamp.
The only way to print exactly what you see is to do the same drawing functions on the printer that you do on the form.
PrintForm is buggy.
