Printing String Builder With Form Feed Not Working

Printing String Builder With Form Feed Not Working

Printing String Builder With Form Feed Not Working

I'm using string builder to create some text file reports. I can add a CrLf using


stbReport.Append("REPORT TOTAL".PadRight(15) _
          + New String(" "c, 59) _
          + RptPayTotal.ToString("#####,##0.00").PadLeft(12) _
          + ControlChars.CrLf) 
But when I add


it is not doing a form feed when I print with the following code where txtReport.Text contains the text from stbReport.ToString


Dim myPrintObject As TextPrint = New TextPrint(txtReport.Text)
    Dim dlg As New PrintDialog
    dlg.Document = myPrintObject

    Dim Result As DialogResult = dlg.ShowDialog

    If (Result = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK) Then
      If ReportLayout = "LANDSCAPE" Then
        myPrintObject.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = True
        myPrintObject.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = False
      End If
      myPrintObject.Font = New Font("Courier New", ReportFont2)
    End If 
Any way to make this work?
