I'm trying to make an app that prints data on the printer with VC 6, however, when I do the TextOut function for the whole text, it prints the whole thing on one line, and \r\n 's are turned into two small unidentified-character boxes.. I've searched through the forums and I've found the idea of taking all the lines, one by one, and print them on a separate line each.
That would work, but I get the same problem with \t , they are also printed as little boxes and not as tabs. I can't believe there isn't an easy way to print text into the printer! I mean, isn't there anything like the Printer object in Visual Basic? or something to make printing easier? it could take me days to write a whole printing module while I'm thinking that it is a very common task that there must already be something implemented that does it!
If anybody knows anything, please, let me know
