    Re: ListView Printer

    I made some adjustments to the class in an attempt to solve some alignment problems. The amended class can be found here.

    @dunfiddlin. no adjustments necessary. just use reasonable column widths + no problem, everything prints ok

    Added the class to a couple projects for testing and seems to works well except when I have LV set to autosize columns it isn't printing everything, seems to cut off last 2-3 chars in a column.
    Oh and how about an option to add a title centered at the top of the page?

    Don't want to print icons anyway. dunfiddlins tweak adds too much spacing.
    Guess I'll just have to tweak around with it myself.
    Thanks!

    Re: ListView Printer

    this is the simplest fix for the columnwidths when autosized.

    in form_load:

    Code:
    ListView1.AutoResizeColumns(ColumnHeaderAutoResizeStyle.ColumnContent)
    For x As Integer = 0 To ListView1.Columns.Count - 1
        ListView1.Columns(x).Width += 12 'try different widths here
    Next

    Re: ListView Printer

    Seems I inadvertently created a bug in my last tweaks. It's solved here.
