I've just been given a requirement to add line-printer style printing to my app.
I have a message window dialog. Each message displayed in the dialog needs to be sent to a "modern" (ie inkjet or laser, etc) printer.
Anybody know how to:
1) Tell a printer to grab a sheet of paper.
2) Print lines of text like a line printer.
3) Eject the paper and load a new sheet
4) Repeat from 2.
I've looked at example code from this site and The Code Project and Code Guru but so far have found a lot of printer classes but nothing too useful to me as of yet.
