Hello All!

What's the equivalent to

Printer.print "Hello World" & vbcrlf
Printer.print "I am here!"

from VB6 in VB.NET?

Thanks!

Hi pvg1975,

Well, sir, that works perfectly!
Quick question before I award you all the points:

Is this the best, shortest syntax just to dump variables etc to paper?
Can this also be used to dump to a screen?

Thanks, Lbiederman
