Summary
  • Microsoft's Visual Basic has been criticized by developers for having too many obstacles to quality printing. By using the Windows API, developers can avoid many of these limitations and make quality printing easy. The printer methods of Visual Basic and Windows API have a nearly one-to-one correspondence between their routines and the only major difference is that Windows requires the user to specifically call StartDoc and StartPage commands at the beginning of a document while Visual Basic makes such calls implicitly the first time a user executes a Print command in a new document. Visual Basic has only one method to print text while Windows API has three and allows more formatting options. Users may wonder why, if the printing methods are so similar, they should use Windows API. Users will benefit from Windows API because it can print to any destination, as long as it has an associated device context.
