I am working on a visual Basic 6 project.
I wish to enter a chess move into a text box and then have the computer check 
it current database of the chess board..
it will update the board and report any errors if the chess move was illegal.
then it will dump a prinout of the chess board to my ink jet printer.
the chess board will be represented with
alphanumerics symbols.
I can visualize how this will look and I think I can do this right if I can 
make th printer print in the
Courier New Font.  This font has all characters in the same exact size..  So if 
I print a line of 55 letter A''s and then the next line is 55 periods..tey will 
line up exactly.
Can anyone point me to a snippet of Visual Basic 6 source code that will allow 
me to change/use the Courier New Font with my printer.
I am still looking thru my VB6 programming books, but have not found this sort 
of example yet.
thanks for any help you folks can offer.
