Few questions about printing and creating a setup disc

P: n/a
hello,
i'm writing a windows application in c# and i have few questions:

1. where can i read or see examples about printing documents which i'll create in my forms. i want to print tables and insert data (each time different data).

2. when i'll finish my program (soon i hope...) i need to create a setup disc.
how can i create a setup, i want to include in my setup also files that not exsist in my project, and i need to know how can i "close" my project so i'll be able to install it in different computers.

thank you.

Hi,
1. where can i read or see examples about printing documents which i'll create in my forms. i want to print tables and insert data (each time
different data).

You could use Crystal Reports with the data in a Dataset, it let you print
formatted or export it to a pdf file.
2. when i'll finish my program (soon i hope...) i need to create a setup disc. how can i create a setup, i want to include in my setup also files that not exsist in my project, and i need to know how can i "close" my project so
i'll be able to install it in different computers.

You add a Setup project to the solution. to add out of project files you
just add then to the setup project ( right click on the project name / Add/
File )

You then create an autorun.inf file pointing to your setup.exe and just burn
this CD :)

Cheers,
