Default printer using System.Drawing.Printing

Posts: n/a

I'm using System.Drawing.Printing to print some simple

Private WithEvents mDoc As New PrintDocument

The click event on a button has the


command, which launch the event to start printing.

Private Sub mDoc_PrintPage

e.Graphics.DrawString("Hello", mFont, Brushes.Black,
xPos, yPos)

According the MSDN library this code should use the
default printer. But it doesn't work. When I add the code

mDoc.PrinterSettings.PrinterName("my printer name")

it works. But I want to use the default printer of user.
What is coming wrong?

Many thanks,
