I am using a form just for printing. i am using PrintPictureToFitPage which is kinda like printscreen. the forms needs to be visible to print. I do not want this form to show. i have tried placing the form completly off the right side of screen and this does not work.My next attempt is to place it behind the calling form.
How can i place this form behind another form ?

Have you tried setting its Visible property to False?

set the focus property of the other form.

Try,

for example you have form1 and form2. form2 needs to be sent at the back of the other form.


Do this...

form1.setfocus

The form has to be visible.
The setfocus prints the top portion of the printform and the bottom of the calling form

try to minimize the form without showing it in the taskbar.
another way is to set its borderstyle to none and setting its sizes to zero (width=0 and heigth=0)
