Switch between paper trays in vb6 using printform method

I want to switch between two print trays as printing is done programmatically in VB6 without user intervention.  The user must not be involved in the choice of print trays.  We are using the PrintForm method  in the following command  FormContract.PrintForm.  If one uses the following method  Printer.Print , then one of the available properties is the PaperBin property.  That property is not available using method PrintForm.  
Is there a way to easily switch between paper trays?  Please illustrate with code example if it is possible.
If it is not easily done,  is there a dll or ocx available to do this?

The PrintForm() method will print to the default printer as defined in Control Panel. This means it will print with the default settings as well, including which paper tray to print from.

So, since the visual basic Printer object is a reference to the default printer.... have you tried just changing the Printer.PaperBin property, and then calling PrintForm()?
