Print PicBox at Co-ords on page???

I am trying to print a PictureBox control (Container with image controls and labels) to a printer...  The difficulty I'm having is when I try to place the PictureBox at certain co-ordinates on the page.  I am currently trying various methods - none successfully.  I'd appreciate ANY help!!

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim PrintingX as Long, PrintingY As Long
Dim PrintingWidth as Long, PrintingHeight as Long
' Set these values as you need

PrintingX = Printer.CurrentX
PrintingY = Printer.CurrentY
PrintingWidth = Picture1.Width
PrintingHeight = Picture1.Height
Printer.PaintPicture Myform.Picture1.Image, PrintingX, PrintingY, PrintingWidth, PrintingHeight
End Sub

Thanks for the speedy reply there Arc... Unfortunatley, when I entered the code and ran the application, I received the error msg >> 'valid Picture' (which is an improvement on the msgs I was getting earlier, I can say).  Would you have any advice on this matter??

PS:  The AutoRedraw property of the PictureBox control IS set to TRUE.

That Error Message should have said 'Invalid Picture' - Ooops!!

I am beginning to find that the problem is the fact that the PictureBox is containing other controls...  Can anybody help???

Hi
Sorry, now I understand, what you mean. I thought you want to print image, but you want to print controls from  picturebox container. Invalid picture error is because you have no picture in your picture box. Try to use API BitBlt function:
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.ScaleMode = vbPixels
   Printer.Print "" 
   BitBlt Printer.hDc, 100,100, 200,200, Picture1.hDc, 0, 0, Picture1.ScaleWidth, Picture1.ScalleHeight, vbSrcCopy
End Sub

I tried the above code.
Its the perfect solution except that

Bitblt will not accept picture1.scalewith and picture1.scaleheight

I just wanted to bring this to notice..

Arc...
I have the Problem sorted out, but I will definately try your API call as it looks a lot more exact...

I have decided to just remove the PictureBox control and give exact co-ordinates for the printer object of each individual controls contents...

Thanks for the help... I accept both your answers with gratitude...
