Making something print

I have created a project with approximately 10 forms in it.  What the program I am trying to create is this.  I give you a bunch of radio button with various components of an off road vehicle.  You click on it and as you continue on, pictures are being shown for what you have chosen and a vehicle is being created for you in front of you, your way.  I want to know how a person within the program will be able to print the picture of the vehicle they have created.

You will need to create a report, using ActiveReports, CrystalReports, or whatever, and embed your picture into the report, then print it.

jimhorn,

You are answering two of my questions, one about this printing deal and the other about the end user saving it's work and then going back to it.  Do you have a pretty good VB background?  Both seem like good answers but I am still a little confused.  I am very brand new at this.

My comment in the other question would apply to this one, although on a much smaller scale.

My main skillset is Access, and from there I moved into VB6-SQL-Crystal Reports.

EE is a great resource for specific technical Q&A, but for training issues such as data access that have a larger scope than you can write into one question, I'd go the manual route.

There may be some URL's that have tutorials on data access and report writing.  
These may help, and other developers would also have their favorites, in addition to EE:
http://www.engin.umd.umich.edu/CIS/course.des/cis400/vbasic/vbasic.html A basic 'Intro to VB'
http://www.ftponline.com/vsm/  Visual Studio Magazine
http://www.vb123.com  Makers of 'The Toolshed'

Hope this helps.
-Jim

if you show pictures,
you could use the Printer object in visual basic

then you can print (virtually) everything you want.
