PrintForm technique in VB Studio 2015

I am attempting to improve my VB programing skills using the textbook "Programming in Visual Basic 2010," by Julia Case Bradley & Anita C. Millspaugh. I am using VB Studio 2015 Community to do my lessons in a total 64-bit environment.

My current lesson (pg. 40) calls for using "PrintForm" component out of VB Basic PowerPack. MS VB Studio 2015 does not contain the the PowerPacks and when I downloaded it, the option did not show up in my toolbox.

Question: PowerPacks are old and I probably need to move to newer techniques, so my problem is what toolbox substitution should I use in my VBS 2015 community software? I am also curious where the PowerPacks install went: what key word to use in searching for it? TIA JP

After downloading the new component, did you look under the "toobox symbol" on the VB Studio 2015 menu?

Re: PrintForm technique in VB Studio 2015

Thanks for responding to my query. The Toolbox under “All Windows Forms” tab has the following listed: PrintDialog, PrintDocument, PrintPreviewControl and PrintPreviewDialog. No PrintForm component is listed nor a header for Visual Basic PowerPacks.

Re: PrintForm technique in VB Studio 2015

Thank you for your response. I placed my cursor on my form and then pressed Alt+Ctrl+X; my cursor moved to the Toolbox list. No Visual Basic PowerPack appeared in the list of tools in any catgory in the Toollbox. I also did another install/repair of the downloaded vb-vbpowerpacks (1,012KB).

Re: PrintForm technique in VB Studio 2015

Happy Days! I was advised to forget the VB PowerPacks, at least until MS provides support if ever! I did manage to find "PrintForm" while familiarizing myself with VB Studio.

Go to top ribbon and select Tools > Choose Toolbox Items > PrintForm

Now if only I could relocate the location where the list objects that showed up in the toolbox space I will be happy - at the bottom of the toolbox area were three choices
Content?(), Index and ????! Next time I will write a road map in my textbook!
