MSHFlexGrid print rows

Hi.. I have a flex grid.. I want to print all the rows the following code will print out only the first chounk of rows only:

Private Sub Command2_Click()
 Printer.Font = "VERDANA"
 Printer.Orientation = 2
 Printer.FontSize = 12
 Printer.FontBold = True
 Printer.Print Label1.Item(0).Caption
'For x = 1 To Int((Grid1.Rows - 1) / 30) + 1
'Grid1.?!! = x * 30
Printer.PaintPicture Grid1.Picture, 1, 1400
'Next x
Printer.EndDoc
End Sub

I've set a loop to check the rows count and print each chunk but I can't get the proprety to scroll to the last row of the first chunk.. if it's possible.. besides this method is inaccurate since more then 30 rows might be printed and reprinted on the other page.. is there a way to define how much rows to print?

I can use Crystal reports but I'm using VB6.. besides I need to do it using MSHFlex grid if possible..

Hi,

Why not resize your grid to be large enough to display all records, then print that, then restore it to the old size?

I've done it this way with an invisible flex grid..

Private Sub Command2_Click()
'Setting the Grids column widths and columns, rows numbers
GridX.Width = Grid1.Width
GridX.Rows = 29
GridX.Cols = Grid1.Cols
For Colz = 0 To Grid1.Cols - 1
GridX.ColWidth(Colz) = Grid1.ColWidth(Colz)
Next Colz
zxx = Int((Grid1.Rows - 1) / 30) + 1 'number of pages
For x = 1 To zxx 'loop thru pages
RowZ = 0 ' row of GridX
    For RowX = ((30 * x) - 30) To (30 * x) 'loop thru rows
        If RowX < Grid1.Rows Then ' check if the first grid got to its end
            GridX.Rows = RowZ + 1
            If GridX.Rows > 1 And x = 1 Then GridX.FixedRows = 1
                For ColX = 0 To (Grid1.Cols - 1) 'loop thru columns
                    If (ColX = Grid1.Cols - 1 Or ColX = Grid1.Cols - 2) And Grid1.Row <> 0 Then
                        GridX.TextMatrix(RowZ, ColX) = Left(Grid1.TextMatrix(RowX, ColX), 10)
                    Else
                        GridX.TextMatrix(RowZ, ColX) = Grid1.TextMatrix(RowX, ColX)
                    End If
                Next ColX
            RowZ = RowZ + 1
        End If
     Next RowX
'Print here
If RowZ > 0 Then
Printer.Font = "VERDANA"
Printer.Orientation = 2
Printer.FontSize = 12
Printer.FontBold = True
Printer.Print Label1.Item(0).Caption & "  (Page:" & x & " of " & zxx & ")"
Printer.PaintPicture GridX.Picture, 1, 1400
Printer.EndDoc
End If

Re: 'I've done it this way with an invisible flex grid..' from Silvers5,
I modified his/her sample to work in my application. I do however have one problem.
My top row(fixed, database field names) only prints on my first page. Any ideas on how to print the top row on every page?

Thanks,
Bob
