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. 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.

The following example demonstrates how to set the FontSize property.

Dim pr As New Printer
pr.Print("This is the default font size")
pr.FontSize = 20
pr.Print("This is a 20 point font")
