Printign data over form

P: n/a
Hi All,

I'm new to VB. I would like to know, how to print data over a form. Much
like Turbo Tax prints the data over the tax forms, all in shot.

Visual Studio 2005, SQL 2005.

TIA,

E Ortega

If you have a bitmap graphic or scanned image of the form, you will need
to determine the coordinates of where you want the generated data to appear
on the image, and draw the text at that location. Of course, you can draw
the entire form from scratch if you want to.

If the form exists as a PDF file, there are third party tools that will let
you interact with the form fields in those files. Microsoft's InfoPath also
exists for just this type of activity. If you can describe the form using
InfoPath's XML schema, you could probably merge your data into that for printing.
