Do you just want text in your GUI box? If so, try a label.

Example:

GUICreate("Example GUI", 200, 50)
  GuiSetControl("label", "Here is a label", 0, 0, 100, 20)
GuiShow()
GUIWaitClose()

Talking to a printer and a GUI are two compleatly different things.

First of all, there is no "GUI mode." You can create a GUI to display controls, and ask for user input. You can use things such as buttons, labels, checkboxes, menus, etc.

I don't believe AutoIt can directally talk to a printer. However, you could automate the printing from within an application. Most apps use the Control-p key to print, so try using Send or ControlSend to send the Control-p key, and any other required keys to hit OK to any print confirmation boxes.
