Here is a VB class for printing rotated text to the screen or printer.  This should work for you:

I can't seem to get this to print.  The code all runs, but it doesn't send it to the printer??

OK I got this working.  Is there anyway I can send a picturebox instead of text?

This is what I am trying to do.  I have a barcode that I created and stored into a picture box.  I would like to be able to rotate it 90 degrees and then print it to the printer (with some other text which is also rotated).  I already have my text printing in the correct spot.  I just need to get my barcode out.

Thanks

Hi Fraser,

Glad to hear that you were able to get the code working.  Is the barcode you are trying to rotate just a regular image in a picture box?

I'm not sure the above script can rotate a picture, although I believe it can rotate text and put that text in a picture box.  I found a link to a VB script which can rotate a bitmap to the angle you specify, but I was only able to find a link to a zip file containing the code (no instructions on how to use it).  You might check it out and see if this would work for rotating your barcode.  You can probably figure out how to use it fairly quick.  I did read that this script is limited to a 256 color bitmap though, but if you're using a regular black & white barcode, that won't be an issue.  Here's the link:

Let me know if this works for you.

I am only using a black and white barcode.  I just took a quick look, but I will look further.  I will let you know how I make out.

I havn't got a chance to look at it again.  It will be a couple of more days before I can.  Sorry I'm being so slow.  Trying to do to many things at once.  I will keep you posted.
