    First of all, your question would be better placed in the normal Forum (not in the CodeBank),
    but I'll answer it here anyways, in case a moderator will move the thread to the main-VB6-forum.

    ... as the class-name cwVList suggests, this is a Virtual-ListControl - and as such,
    it will not "hold" any Data inside of its class-structures or -variables.

    All your Data is kept outside of such a Virtual Control (inside normal Arrays, Collections or Recordsets) -
    and the "visualizing" (the Rendering) of that Data then happens "outside the Control" as well
    (usually within Handler-Procs of the appropriate VList_OwnerDraw-Events, the Widget-Class will throw into the hosting Form).

    So you will have to look (e.g. inside these just mentioned Event-Handlers),
    in which DataContainer your data is really located (Array, Collection or Recordset) -
    it will for sure not sit within the cwVList-Control itself, which does not know anything about that Data.

    And after you found that DataContainer-Object or -Array, you should now be able,
    to render its whole content (by looping over all its "Rows" or "Records") -
    also on a Printer-Canvas (a Printer-hDC or alternatively on a PDF-Surface of the RC5).

    As for rendering stuff directly into a PDF, there's an example here:

    How do I render this on a PDF surface of the RC5 if for example I have 200 records to print? this is my wish

    Moved to main forum. Codebank is for code submissions rather than questions.

    I've uploaded a new Demo (which is capable, to render a Recordset across several Pages) in the CodeBank-thread here:
