Hi,

All printings in .Net are done using the PrintDocument class. Basically, you will handle the PrintDocument.PrintPage event and write your code there using GDI+ to draw the page. When you want to print, you just call the Print method of your PrintDocument object. Whether you're printing a picture, a text page or a listview is not important. The principles are the same. You will get the paper size, the margins and calculate your print area. You also calculate the x, y cordinates of each item being printed. It's not simple in my opinion, but it's not too difficult either.

You can find an example, here.

Send all the listview items to a DataSet then use the Microsoft Reportviewer to print

Hi chibex64,

That's the same what I suggested, but still waiting his response :icon_confused:

I am sorry for taking long to respond to your help.Thanks a lot Luc001,Chibex64, Aldeene and Pocohontus.i have made some progress and i am capable of printing and priviewing in richtextbox only but for listview i get a blank page.could you help me do it.attached here is an example.

As far as I can see, the preview is returning a blank page, because the line

Dim strText As String = Me.ListView1.Text

returns an empty string, as expected because you never filled his text propery.

Probably you should need to do some thing like

Dim strText as String
For Each lvi as ListViewItem in me.ListView1
    For Each lvsi as ListViewSubItem in lvi
        strText &= lvsi.Text & ControlChars.Tab
    Next
    strText &= ControlChars.CrLf
Next

Hope this helps
