I have a form where after somr caculation are done the information is added to a textBox.  I want to place a button
on this form and when you click it. and it sends the text to the printer. How about doing the same with a listbox.

The text in the textbox is  like:

(100) ...One Hundred
(1,010)... One thousand Ten
(1,000,954)...One Million Nine Hundred Fifty Four
and so on

program converts numbers to text

You can use a printDocument to print the things you want in the printPage event of the object with the e.Graphics.DrawString method.
