Default print data as receipt format

Hi all,

I need your help. I need to print data as receipt format. The receipt has date, title, cashier name ordered menu and the accumulative payment. As I know there is no preformatting printing in doNet so is there a way to overcome that?

Please help

unforutantely, you'll have to make your own.

To make right-alignment, use the PadLeft() method.

public static string LeftAlign(string text, int widthOfLine)
    return text.PadRight(' ', widthOfLine);

public static string RightAlign(string text, int widthOfLine)
    return text.PadLeft(' ', widthOfLine);
To centre text, find the width of the text, and do Math.Floor( ( (width_of_line - width_of_text) ) / 2 ) to get the position to start at.


private string CentreText(string text, int widthOfLine)
     int startPosition = (int)Math.Floor((widthOfLine - text.Length)/2));
     StringBuilder blankLine = new StringBuilder( new string(' ', widthOfLine) );
     blankLine.Insert(startPosition, text);

     return blankLine.ToString();
I hope this helps,
