Printing a form

I have an MDI child form that can be wider that the available area on the MDI parent form.

I need to print the MDI child form, but by using PrintForm, only the visible area is printed.

Does anyone know if I can print the MDI child form contents without having to scroll the MDI parent form, or how I can automatically scroll the MDI parent form to print the MDI child form using multiple PrintForm commands?

Are you issuing the PrintForm from a reference to the MDIParent or from the MDI Child?

If you say MDIForm1.PrintForm then you will only get the visible contents of the MDI parent form (assuming that it's name is MDIForm1)

But, if you say frmChild.Printform, then you should get then entire child form to print whether it is completely visible or not.  If not, then try setting the child form's AutoRedraw property to True.
