public class Printer

The Visual Basic 6.0 Printer object has no direct equivalent in Visual Basic 2008. The Printer object provides all the properties, methods, and events of the Visual Basic 6.0 Printer object. This enables Visual Basic 6.0 printing code to run after upgrade.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
