Currently, my program creates a large editbox and fills it with the results of competitors in a competition. Using an editbox allows the director to make changes, if desired. I'm looking for a good reference to tell me how to communicate with the printer such that I can vary the size and orientation, etc., so I can adjust the info to fit the printed page. In the "old days" I would simply open up the LPT and send codes. I guess I can still send streams to the printer, but I need to know the rest of the Win32 story. Any good on line references?
As an extra thought, I'm currently using a fixed width font so I can have properly formatted tabular data. Is there something that explains another approach that can show varying width fonts in proper columns?
Thanks for any guidance.
