Hi, i'm trying to implement a print function and i can print a single string out but i'm having trouble configuring the page setup properly, mainly moving to a new line when the margin of the page is reached and moving to a new lines for each string in a list of string.

so far i have this printing out a single piece of text:

private void document_PrintPage(object sender,
        System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs e)
        {
            System.Drawing.Font printFont = new System.Drawing.Font
            ("Arial", 28, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular);

            string text = "Now then";
            // Draw the content.
            e.Graphics.DrawString(text.ToString(), printFont, System.Drawing.Brushes.Black, 10, 10);
        }

i've tried looking on the internet but musent be using the right search criteria because i can only find stuff to print one small string.

Any suggestions of how to do the above or suggestions of tutorials will be great

thanks

Remember to take the page rectangle into account when you do a newline at the bottom of the print page!
EDIT: Oh and on line 9 you don't have to do text.ToString(), because text is already a string.

Well spotted on the line 9. thanks i'll have a crack with your suggestion. any other suggestions are welcome
