How a lot of string formatted output to a printer?


1) The first line of Arial font and size 20 and Bold

2) The second line to the fourth line of  Tahoma font and size 14

3) Insert two blank lines every 5 row

4) Every 64 rows to add a page break (chr(12) ) and add headers and footers

5) Finally, the formatted string output to a printer(Dot matrix printer)

Use a GUI then use RichEdit there you may could make this with different Fonts~ Then u may could add the string within a Array which would be in the end written to the RichEdit. Then you could stream it to a file which is a .rtf and this can be printed in the end ;3

You can format your lines and send directly to print.  A search of "rtf print" turned up several examples including this.

Formatting your print will involve reading a source (file, probably), formatting each line according to your requirements and outputting the line to a printer or file.

See what you can put together and come back for help, if needed.

Good Luck,
