How to Print the Text in a TextBox Using Visual Basic 2008 ..(Page Setup and Print Dialog)

This is the continuation of my previous tutorial which is How to Print the Text in a TextBox Using Visual Basic 2008. This time, I’m going to add the Page Setup and Print Dialog. In the Page Setup you can choose any setup that you wanted in your page and it contains selections such as the margin,sizes and etc.. While in the Print Dialog you can select the number of pages and copies that you want to print. And you can set up your printer too.

Let’s begin :

Open the project of How to Print the Text in a TextBox Using Visual Basic 2008 and add the two Buttons, PageSetupDialog and Print Dialog in the Form. Name the two Buttons, first is “btnpagesetup” and the other one is “btnprintdialog”. It will look like this.

Double click the “Page Setup” Button and do this following code.

  1. Private Sub btnpagesetup_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnpagesetup.Click
  2.      Try
  3.         With PageSetupDialog1
  4.             'SET THE VALUE THAT INDICATES THE PRINT DOCUMENT TO GET PAGE SETTING FORM.
  5.             .Document = PrintDocument1
  6.             'SET THE VALUE THAT INDICATES TO MODIFY THE PAGE SETTINGS
  7.             .PageSettings = PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings
  8.         End With
  9.         If PageSetupDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
  10.             'SET THE DEFAULT SETTING FOR ALL THE PAGES TO BE PRINTED
  11.             PrintDocument1.DefaultPageSettings = PageSetupDialog1.PageSettings
  12.         End If
  13.       Catch ex As Exception
  14.        MsgBox(ex.Message)
  15.        End Try
  16.     End Sub

After that, go to the design views, double click the “Print Dialog” Button and do this following code.

  1. Private Sub btnprintdialog_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnprintdialog.Click
  2.       Try
  3.         If PrintDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then 'CHECKING THE DIALOG RESULT
  4.             PrintDocument1.Print() 'START THE PRINTING PROCESS
  5.         End If
  6.       Catch ex As Exception
  7.        MsgBox(ex.Message)
  8.        End Try
  9.     End Sub
