MXXMLWriter for pretty printing


I am trying to use MXXMLWriter with the indent flag to pretty print an XML
document from vb6.

Although the output is mostly indented in a reasonable way, the end tags are
always bunched up at the end of a line not on a line by themselves e.g.

<c>some text</c/> </b>
<d>more text</d> </a>

am I doing something stupid here? is VB just displaying it in a funny way?
is there any other way to fix this behavior?

failing that, does anyone know of a SIMPLE way of indenting some XML with vb
and MSXML? by simple I mean less than 100 lines of code, no extra downloads
and no horrible API calls.

I realise that XML and whitespace is an emotive issue. My definition of
reformatting is that any whitespace within a text node (i.e. not at the
beginning or the end) or between text nodes should be preserved.
whitespace-only text nodes and leading/trailing whitespace should be
rewritten to "pretty up" the document. I think this would serve for 95% of
all 'pretty print' requirements.

Hi, I know Access allows for easy construction of a report setup to print labels from a table/query, etc. I've done that one. It works pretty well for what I need. However, is there an example anywhere that someone can point me to that is more flexible? And, I mean flexible in this regard:

Hello, I have 7 different crystal reports that need to be collated. Since I want to end up with a page of each (which all together make a single report), I created a blank main report and then added the 7 as subreports so they can print one after the other. I'm supposed to be printing them from a VB.Net 2003 application and I will be passing 2 parameters (start and end dates). These reports are huge (over 1000+ pages each). My original...

I have a vb.net 2005 application and am using the print preview screen. This screen has a printer icon on it that the user can use to print the document currently being viewed. It uses the default printer settings to print. I wanted the print preview to appear the same for all users (i.e. a default page size of 8.5x14 (legal) and portrait mode). Many users have different printers as their default (plotters etc..) and I found that various...

We have clients asking that we provide an easy way to print envelops from within our web applications. These envelopes need to be pretty advanced, and need to include a bar code and maybe even a logo. My boss wants a solution where we simply "push" the Word or ODF file to the client's computer and it automatically prints on their printer. I actually think that is what our clients are hoping for as well. I've told him I am pretty darn...
