How to make window forms goes beyond 800, 780

I developed a module to print window forms to printer.  The output was great except that it is a bit short for a 8x11 letter size.  Because the form.size is 800 by 780.  I need to expand it to 800x1100, but from the form properties I can't change the height, I enter 1100, hit return, it reset to 780.

If not posible then is there a better way to print reports to printer in window applications, I need to be able to set bold, italics, big font, lines and boxes.

Thanks in advanced.

Thats because your Screen Resolution is set to "1024 by 768".
Window could would not display a form larger than itself.
Go to "Display properties" -> Settings and change Screen Resolution to "1280 by 1024".

Now, you would be able to increase height beyond 780
