Note

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to set the CurrentX and CurrentY properties. In this case, it prints text 500 twips from the top edge of the page and 500 twips from the left edge of a page.

Dim Printer As New Printer
