Visual Basic 6 printing


I am using the printer. command in VB6 to output data to a template.

I have a text box set as a multiline text box and I can input the name, address etc on separate lines but when it comes to printing I have set the printer.currentx and printer.currenty to the coordinates on the template, the first line printed is in the correct place but all other lines are pushed back to the edge of the page.

How can I format the text to be at the same column as to print to the template?

Any help would be appreciated

Can you attach a zip file of your project or a demo project with the textbox and the code you are using to print it?

Hi pandgcs,  did you manage to solve your printing issue?

Do you need any explanation in the code example,  I can add more comments if required.
