    Problem printing forms with white background (VB5, VB6)

    Hello,

    I have a form with a white background. When I print it using PrintForm the printer faintly shades the background of the entire form. I've tried it on several different laser printers (HP, Brother, etc.) and they all do the same thing. The background colour is definitely white.

    Does anyone know why it does this and how I can stop it?

    Thanks in advance.

    James

    Are you sure it's set to the whitest of whites?
    Verify that you've got &H00FFFFFF& for the back color.

    I've never experienced that problem on an HP laser printer with VB6. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Is it small enough to post here? So we could have a look?
