Hello,

 Here's what im trying to do.. I appreciate all help on this...

 I have a taskbar tray icon that will periodically pull from a database and print off whatever needs to be printed.. I have the taskbar app already made. If the user right clicks on it, it will allow you to select a printer. Im trying to figure out first how to use the print dialog box properly so it will show the select a printer box to the user and let them select what printer they want.

 Once they have a printer selected, I need another button or something so that when they click it, it will print off the data that I have stored in an array. It is sales related data. So I need:

 1. To figure out how to show the select a printer dialog.
 2. To actually print a few lines on to the selected printer from within vb.net

 Thanks!
