Hi all.

I have created some forms on Excel with all the codes.
Results are displayed on forms.

does anyone has a sample code to structure a customized printing of contents of the userform on A4 paper together with preview?

Need it urgently.

Thanks!!

If this is still an issue:

Could you please give some more details?
I'm not quite sure what you mean.

You mode some VBA forms? You want to print those? What needs to be customized?
And you want a preview of this form to be printed?

Kind regards

HI..

basically, I have some forms with scroll bars. When you use printform, it usually prints only the visible area.
Is there any way to print the whole contents of the form?

Thanks.

Are those scrollbars on the form itselves or are they only scrolling some multiline textboxes?

Kind regards

They are on the form itself.

OK,

I do not have a customised print function, but when it's just printing the form, maybe you could do it quick and dirty by resizing the form for a while.

eg:

Sub PrintTheForm()
  Dim dblHeight#
  dblHeight = UserForm1.Height
' replace 323 by the height of your own form
  UserForm1.Height = 323
  UserForm1.PrintForm
  UserForm1.Height = dblHeight
End Sub

It's not the most sophisticated solution, but this way you're at least able to print the whole form.
(you needed it urgent).

Kind regards

???? What other pages?
Maybe you should clarify a bit more what you're trying to do?

Well... maybe i haven't made myself clear.

a user form can have infinite scroll height (or very huge).
I have tried to change the scroll height to 0 so that it displays the whole contents of the form and then I print the form using printform.
However, the contents of my userform is longer than a standard page on a printer.  When printform is used, it only tried to print the form in one page regardless of whether the contents is going to be longer than a page. in other words, it only prints whatever that can be fit on one standard page and ignore the rest of the contents of the form!!!

I hope I have made mysefl clear.

Ah, OK,

This indeed clears things up.
Well, as far as I can see you have 2 options.

1) use a third party product, for example:

2) Use the WorkAround that Microsoft gives in:

Hope this helps,
Kind regards
