embedding an axtiveX that prints on the local printer.

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by george d lake, Jul 9, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    Is it possible to write in VB6 an activeX that will receive a RecordSet and
    display a data report and then print it on a local/network printer?

    Yes, George, it's possible.

    Of course, you might want a different looking printout for different
    recordsets. Also, if you wished to alter the look of the report you would
    need to distribute a new DLL.

    Instead, you might want to look at turning XML into HTML (or some other
    format) using XSLT. That way you can just change the XSLT (file) to get a
    different looking report.
