Visual Basic 6: Printing to a Picture Box

I am trying to print to a picture box on a seperate form.

I enter data in the main form, and submit each record, by pressing on a submit button, which does the calculations and prints details to the picture box, but does not show it right away.

After all the records are submitted, I press on a different command button (Generate Report), and it's supposed to print to a picture box in a seperate form. I can't get this to work.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I don't think you can print to a picture box without API. You can however put a label in the pic box and set the backstyle property to transparent and it will look like you are printing to a pic box

Why are you trying to put your data into a picture box? Is it text-data? If so, why not use a textbox?

to get data from one form to another, here is a way, i hope this leads you in teh right direction

having 2 forms, form1 and form2

from form1, form 2 can be access by asking for it

form2.textbox= "stuff"

or

formx.objectname.objectproperty


hope this gets you thinking in the right direction.

also dont forget about the autoredraw setting if it is not showing up like it should.

Thanks, the only thing is I'm doing some calculation on my form 1, that are then supposed to printed to the picutre box in form two, when I click on the 'Generate Report' button. So I'm not really grabbing anything from a textbox in form 1. It's an assignment for class, so it has to be done in a picture box.
Right now I have:

Load frmReport
Hide Me

frmReport.picReport.Print

to print all the calculations that have been done.

Hope this is enough information.
