Sending contents of a list box to a printer

VB6 under XL:

I have an application that computes some stuff, and displays it in a list box, item by item.
I would like to send the contents of the list box to a printer.

I wrote a routine:
Public Function GetDefaultPrinter() As String
It seems to work just fine. It either returns the printer, or "Not Found".

On the form containing the list box, I have a command button: cmdPrint with the associated sub:
cmdPrint_Click()

Question: How do I send the contents of the list box to the printer? Code to go into the Click Sub

Comment: For this purpose, a List Box may not be the best container for the computed data.

Here is a quick reference:

It walks you through to print a text file line by line. You can just change the lines of the text file with the items of your listbox.

This will do it.
Dim X as Integer
For X = 0 To List1.ListCount -1
      Printer.Print List1.List(X)
Next X
Printer.EndDoc
This assumes the List box is called List1. You can change that as necessary. Note taht this automatically uses the default pritner, so you do not need to find out which printer it is.
