Custom Printing to a Form

P: 2
Is there any way to print directly to a form?
Where I can move the cursor to a location, set the font size and style, print a charater and continue on.

I'm actually attemping to create a form that is going to print over a preprinted paper form.

It can be done, but it is a very tedious operation, requiring precise alignment and positioning of Controls on a Form. The basic idea is to Scan the Pre-Printed Form, use the Graphic as a Background for the Form via its Picture Property, precisely position Text Boxes on the Form, then Print it. This will obviously require many attempts to get it just right.
