Printing A Form On A Full Page
I am trying to print barcode labels on a sheet of barcode label stickers. First, I used the printer.print command to print labels, but was not able to make it print three across b/c the spaces I used the serperate the barcodes, actually ended up becoming the barcode equivalent of a space (resulting in one really long line of barcode).

Now I have a form laid out with 18 labels, and I just fill the labels with the barcodes I need and print it out. I would like to somehow get all 33 / page on one form, or atleast in one print job. I seemed to have reached the max on form height, otherwise I would simply add more.

If anyone has any idea on how to print a full page of labels, I would love to hear them =) Thank you!


Make Form Full Screen [VB6]
I have been receiving complaints regarding the size of my applications form, users want it larger and want to be able to make the application full screen.

Making the form larger is simple, but getting the Full Screen (maximize) feature to work seems a little different. I know that I can easily enable the “Maximize” property of the form which allows the form itself to maximize but I would like the other components to maximize as well.

Currently when I enable maximize button on the form and then test it I get only the form goes Full Screen but all components (datagrids, text boxes, labels, etc..) stay the same size and are aligned left instead of Centered which would look much nicer.

Any clues?

Confusion On How To Print A Full Form
Ok, I have done a few searches on how to print a child form and have not been able to find exactly what I needed. I have read several things, and then came across a post in the vbcity forums about a suggestion that the person may want to use Crystal, Report, Data Report to print a form so now I am really confused and not sure what or where I should do/go.

I have a child form. In that child form I have a pic box with a number of text, label and combo box controls. Because scoll bars will not automatically appear/disappear when needed, I went with an example that someone have me on how to code that into a child form, but all of the text, label, etc controls need to be placed in a pic box. (Attached I have the project that I am working on)

I am using the Print as a menu item and the code is as follows:

Private Sub mnuFilePrint_Click()
End Sub

I have two problems with this.

First, when a child form is not open, I get an error. I know that there is a check that I can do using ActiveForm to see if a child form is open, but I cannot find my notes on this, and wadeing thru the MSDN is a pain in arse. Isn't it something like

If ActiveForm.Nothing then Exit Sub ?

Second, when a child form IS open, the form will print, but

1. It does not fit on the page (8.5 x 11) width wise and

2. the full form is not printed, only what is displayed on the screen.

Using the active form properties, how can I make it print the whole form, even that which is not displayed?

Thanks in advance.

If you use the prject attached, you will probably have to create an access database with the file name FDN_DWG_INDEX.mdb ( dont need tables at this point).

Prob With Printing A Full Page Form
I am trying to print a one full page form (height = 14000). However on the resolution of 1024 by 768 and less, the form will auto decrease its height to 11000. With the height of the 11000, it will not be a full page. To make it worst, it squishes all the objects on the form together.

On my form property, I have set the following:

- windowstate = 1 minimized
- StartUpPosition = 1 - CenterOwner
- BorderStyle = 2 - Sizable
- Scalemode = 0 - User

Do I need to set AutoRedraw On?

Creating A Full Page Sized Form
I need to create a form that displays information about a car. The information will be pulled from a previous form that a dealer will fill out and will be put on a final form. My problem is that I need to be able to print out this final form with the car information on a regular size piece of paper. However, I can't get the height of a form to be any larger than about a half sheet of paper. Does anyone know how to create a form to be printed that will take up the whole page? Thanks!

Hi! Brand New :) - Center A Form In Full Screen??
Hello everyone, I have visited this site for many months when I needed some help. I was usually able to find my answer in a search but this one has me stumped. I am very new to VB and I am basically making a checklist program if you will. I have it set up so that it loads full screen, with no Border. The only problem is that when its loaded full screen the buttons, labels, and pictures are nested in the top left corner of the screen. I would like it it so that the buttons and everything moves to the center of the screen keeping their original formation. The reason I want to have this setup like this is because this application will run on an 800x600 and 1024x768 resolution.

Thanks in advance for all the help!

Get A Full-screen Game To Load Into A Windowed Form...
I currently have a game that does not have an option to run in "windowed" form. It only runs in fullscreen! I know it's possible to take external applications and load them into internal VB forms and controls (such as picturebox). I've done this many times with MS Calculator, etc. by setting the Parent Form.

My question is... how difficult would it be to successfully load a game that runs in fullscreen into a VB form that can be "windowed" (doesn't even have to be resizable). I tried the "SetParent" method that I mentioned above on it; however, only an icon of the game shows up in the VB form... and when I click on it, it launches back into a fullscreen mode!

Any suggestions!? Thanks...

The Full Name
Hi folks,
I need to find out how to use the windows name of a file inside VB, for example, if a file is called “Ineed~.mp3”, how can I get to know how the user has really called the file? (eg. “I need you to come home tonight.mp3”?
Thanks very much,

Full Screening..
I have my application border set to "None" and my windowstate to "maximized" which makes it full screen on startup.. I have shapes which i have created to act like normal windows.. on startup.. how can i make the shapes move to the center of the screen? I will be sending my application to many people after it is completed, and most of them have a different monitor size than i do.. so is there a "center screen" for shapes ? and other objects? or is there a way to insert a window into a full screen application, which could act as a frame to hold other objects inside it, so that when it is moved, the rest of the objects will also move with it?

Full Screen
is it possible to make say a picturebox go full screen or at least make it so that the application windows overlays the start bar?

thanx in advance for any help provided.

Full RGB Gradient
I am simply looking for a RGB gradient.

It is needed for the user to select color with cursor (much like in most paint programs), however if anyone could suggest a better way that using the picturebox (and using the rgb return for mouse position command..forget the command) then it would be most welcome.

Of course it's not difficult to make a rgb gradient, rather that it is difficult to find a good one (and they are too easy to make though).
Only the algorith is necessary, however, if it's in code then I am using VB98.

Thanks in advance.

(I have searched all the obvious places for it on this forum as well as planetsourcecode, but have only found one that didn't look like it would particularly suit.)

Thanks Alot.

Full Sail
I'm not quite sure where this fits under for the forumn, but I was wondering if anyone has attended or is attending Full Sail for Game Development and Design.

I'm trying to decide whether or not I'll be going there after this associate degree in programmer/analyst.

I have read some reviews on the college in gaming magazines, but I really would like some of your inputs on it, if you have been there before or are currently attending.

It's quite expensive, so any input, what so ever, would be appreciated.

Full Screen
is it possible to change the screen resolution during run time so that when i maximize the window, its always the same size for all computers ? i know it can be done with ActiveX, but i don't know how that works... is there another way ? If not, how do i do it with ActiveX ? Thanks

Full Screenshot With DX?
Can anybody show me a step-by-step walkthrough for a way to take a screenshot of my entire desktop using DX? I'm really not very familiar with VB at all. (Studying C++ and Java in college) Any help would be appreciated. The only thing is I need the routine to be very fast, which is why I'm choosing DX over WIN API. Thanks.
