printing causes form to close

I have a strange error. When I print to a printer, it causes the form to close.

here is the code:

Private Sub PrintALabel()

Me.printdoc = New PrintDocument
Me.printdoc.Print() ' This line cause the form to close

End Sub
Private Sub printdoc_printpage(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs) _
Handles printdoc.PrintPage

Dim XDate As Date = Now()
Dim pfont12 As Font = New Font("Arial", 12)
Dim pfont10 As Font = New Font("Arial", 10)

commenting out the Me.printdoc.Print line makes the form stay open but nothing prints naturally.
Anyone know what causes this behavior, and how to prevent it?

Thanks, Art
