        End If

Please help

For some reason I failed to get that print preview to work :@

I noticed that your code needed to bind PrintDocument to PrintPreviewDialog before showing the dialog. Also the source of data and rendering were missing but I bet you have code for that. I started to use MSDN documentation PrintPreviewDialog Class, but so far it's not working. I suggest taking a look at that documentation, you may spot something that I missed. And one thing that's confusing was InitializePrintPreviewDialog method mentioned in the MSDN which I didn't manage to locate :-O

i think it is included in visual studio 2008

You're right. No separate download needed for printing anymore :)

Anyway, sorry that I couldn't help you any better after getting totally stuck myself :'(
