[crystal Report] Avoid Printer From Ejecting Page After Printing A 3 Line Page
Im taking a printout in crystal report - but there are only 3 lines and after printing it goes to next page - but I dont want it to goto next page.
Instead I want it to continue the rest of the printing - which may be in some other report etc - to continue printing from where it left behind (maybe one or 2 lines break)
But after printing 3 lines it automatically ejects out the paper and goes to next page
How do I avoid this ?

Vertical + Horizontal ScrollBar
In a list box, how do you get a vertical scrollbar + horizontal one? I know you can change the column to get a horz scroll bar, but I want one that's vertical that can scroll over. Because the way I have it, things will keep going down on the list and the down scroll bar appears but they won't fit into the list box. Is there anyway to change this without increasing the size of the listbox? Check out the picture to get an idea what I mean. Thanks!

Graph Horizontal And Vertical Cursor

I'm wondering anyone can help me with the following problem:

I have a graph which is used to display a waveform. There are x and y axis. I need to have a horizontal and vertical line which follow the mouse's arrow tip(cursor)--- the intersection point of the horizontal and vertical line should follow the mouse's arrow tip. At a mousedown (mouse click ) event, the horizontal and vertical line intersection point should lie on the point where the mouse click event occur.

The vertical line should cut the corresponding point on x axis and the horizontal lines should cut corresponding point on the y axis. At the mouse click point, i should be able to display its coordinates with respect to the scale of the graph.

Can someone suggest some ways or codes i can use to achieve the above describe line cursor?

I have search around the internet for information but unsuccessful.

This function is really important in my project-help help!

I'm using visual basic 6, standard exe project, not activeX.

Thank you!!!

Don't Eject Page After Printing In Printer
Hello All,
I am using VB6. I have module to print Labels on Dot-matrix printer in the user defined size.
say for eg a label with width 3 inch and height 1 inch. I am directly writing to the printer using Printer.CurrentX and Printer.currentY to set position and writing using Printer.Print.
Since the customer in this case is using a dot-matrix printer with 6 lables down and 2 across. When user wants to print only single label, our program prints the label and after printing it ejects the page (for full length as defined in Printer printing preferences) so user has to again roll back the page for the next label. Can anybody tell me how to force printer to stop at the point where last label is printed and not eject the page.

Thanks and Regards,

Printer Ejects Blank Page Before Printing Report?
I am using the Printer Object in VB6. When I go to print the report...a blank page is printed before the rest of the report. I simply want to print the report without that blank page.

How can I eliminate the blank page printing?

Printer Change Page Orientation From Page To Page
I'm running VB 5. Is it possible to change the page orientation from one page to another.

portion of code:
If page_orientation(gridno) = 0 Then
Printer.Orientation = vbPRORPortrait
Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
End If

If I use "Printer.EndDoc" before the above code, the program works fine. Each page is a separate 'print-job' with the orientation that I want. A problem arises when I want to print to a .PDF printer: each page is saved as a separate PDF because they're all separate 'print jobs'.

If I substitute "Printer.EndDoc" with "Printer.NewPage", I get the error "orientation property cannot be set within a page". Is there any way to get around this?

Printing To Zebra Printer With ZPL Or Printer Object

I know that this question isn't all VB, but I tried to get some info in the barcode forum, but there isn't any traffic there so I thought I could try here.

For the past 10 or 15 years we have used two Zebra label printers hooked up to a computer via serial port and  have sent ZPL to it. We decided to upgrade to newer Zebra printers with network cards so we can print images on the labels, which they have pretty much done what I planned, but I am running into some complications.

With the new printers I used VB6’s printer object and set X and Y coordinates to print my text and bar codes on the labels just like I do with many other documents that I send to HP LaserJets. I am not going to get into the issues that I am having, because I don't think it is relevant (but if you think so I will post it).

My main question is everything I read says to write the txt file and send ZPL to the printer. Why is this used instead of VB6's printer object? I have about 80 users that send print jobs to these printers and wondered if creating a ZPL file was a better way of printing. And, if writing a ZPL text file, where would be a proper place to save the file before it is sent to the printer.

Any input or experience would be greatly appreciated, I am going crazy with this!
