According to documentation at,vs.80).aspx

you can load a page into a WebBrowser control and print it.

Unfortunately I have Visual Studio 2003, and the ActiveX WebBrowser control (not a .NET control) that it ships with has no print method.

thanks jens . .
I loaded the COM "Microsoft Web Browser" component
and I also noticed it had no print function.
Right now I'm trying to print the "Form" . . with the component on the page.
Hi MikeMCSD:
I suggest you add a PrintDocument to your form and read the examples in Help about it.
With the PrintDocument you can print anything you want in the way you want.

In short, you can read your web page into a webbrowser control, then print it using the PrintDocument control
