Hello,

How can i use my combobox to view the printpages i want to see
on my preview document
Code: Select all
If Not ComboBox2.Items.Contains(String.Format("{0}", Me.PrintPreviewControl1.PageCount)) Then
            ComboBox2.Items.Add(String.Format("{0}", Me.PrintPreviewControl1.PageCount))
        End If
        
        'we have 2 pages
        
        Private SubiComboBox2_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ComboBox2.SelectedIndexChanged
        Dim sheets As Double = ComboBox2.SelectedText.ToString
        Me.PrintPreviewControl1.StartPage += sheets
    End Sub
If we select 1 we get the first page thats cool
but when we select 2 we don't get the next page
we like to use our combobox as a sort of next page and previous page option instead of buttons

Thank you.

Not sure about this one. Try using just "=" instead of "+="
Code: Select all
'we have 2 pages Private SubiComboBox2_SelectedIndexChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ComboBox2.SelectedIndexChanged Dim sheets As Double = ComboBox2.SelectedText.ToString Me.PrintPreviewControl1.StartPage = sheets End Sub
