jabaco and printers.

I am just wondering how to do about, for example, taking the contents of a text box, and sending it to a printer for a printed output? That or perhaps the contents of a file as well.

I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I can't see the equivalent VB Printer object so far. I haven't searched the whole runtime yet however. But if someone made this once already, or know how to do it rather simply, please point me in the right direction. :)

Due to platform dependencies, printing is not really easy in Jabaco (, and in Java in general).
Please use the search facility of this forum and look for "printing".

The Simplest way I found to print out in Jabaco.
Format all your output into a rich text control
Richtext1.Text = "This is an Example"

Richtext1.Text = A$ & vbcrlf

Then use:

Richtext1.Parent.Print ()

That is all. You will even be given a printer dialog.
