I'm using the PrintForm command... however, I'd like to center the image on page... how is this possible?

I tried experimenting with this code over here, but haven't came up with much... http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q148392

Any assistance is appreciated...

Will this work?

'apply same scale mode to printer
Printer.ScaleMode = Form.ScaleMode

'position current printing coordinates
Printer.CurrentX = (Printer.ScaleWidth - Form.ScaleWidth) / 2
Printer.CurrentY = (Printer.ScaleHeight - Form.ScaleHeight) / 2

'print form
Form.PrintForm

Unfortunately, the .PrintForm method simply sends the image to the printer directly so you cannot alter it.

What you would have to do is save an image file (bitmap) of the form, and then set the Printer's CurrentX and CurrentY and finally .PaintPicture the saved image.

Here's some good example code that will help you with this:

The example prints the image fit to page (scales it as big as possible), but you can easily remove that portion of the code to circumvent that from happening.
