I have created a report that is formatted as html.  I need to print this using vb.net 2008.  The report is in memory, not a file or in a browser control.  Any guidance appreciated.

Create a System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser.
Write the HTML to a file (in your temp directory).
specify the file as the source for the webbrowser.  
WebBrowser.Url = New Uri(wrkFileName)

Open in new window

print it using:
 WebBrowser.ShowPageSetupDialog()
WebBrowser.Print()

Open in new window

good call.  actually you can just use the webbrowser.documenttext to load memory html and then just call the print() method.  

thx for the help
