Basically you can't
Visual Basic doesn't raise an error when you assign an unsupported size of a font, but silently uses the closest valid font size that is less than the requested size.
So in your case if 9 and 10 are valid font Sizes VB will
convert it to 9 in each of your cases.

The screen is a virtual size, not an actual size. Since you have a fixed number of pixels, you cannot print a font size of 9 and a font size of 9.1.  It would occupy the same pixels and would not show a difference even though a printer which has higher resolution would show the difference with no problem using the same code as you have.
If you used a font size of:
fontsize =9.9 * 4  
print "test"
fontsize =9.8 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.7 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.6 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.5 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.4 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.3 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.2 * 4
print "test"
fontsize =9.1 * 4
you could see a difference even though windows would still set it to the nearest legal size.  Even then, there will still be some fonts that still show no difference.
