Hello luthar,

What do you mean by "print"? And what distinguishes in this case between RTB and Label?

You could access Label.Caption property or RichTextBox.Text or RichTextBox.RTFText properties...

so...

is
Debug.Print Me.Label1.Caption
the answer?

Sincerely yours,

Crin

PS. Sorry, English is not my native language... :(

Sry i should have been more clear in my question.

I wish to send the content of my label to my printer so i get a printed document that has all the characters my label had.


hope it's clearer...

Private Sub Form_Click()
Printer.Print Label1.Caption
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
Label1.Caption = "VALERA" & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
"DAMN"
End Sub

If you want to create a document, something like word makes it is not enough to use a simple label. You have to use the printer object (or  a crystalreport control etc.) to do this. If you just send something to the printer...well it's not enough if you want to make something beautiful. I will help for you with that if you want. If not luthar's and kamall's answer is absolutely correct.
