I have a form I've created in VB6 with loads of controls (txtboxes, cmboxes, etc).  How would one go about printing the screen with all of the information contained in the form?  Long and Short, offer the users the ability to create a printout of what's on the screen for record keeping.  Limitations - a screen print will not be acceptable and using an application is not acceptable.
