Abiword printing text boxes

Abiword printing text boxes

Post by TheKeit » Tue, 08 Aug 2006 11:32:16

I'm wondering if someone might be able to help me. I created an envelope
template in abiword using the no. 10 envelope page size, .25 margins on
all 4 sides, and two simple text boxes, one for the return address and
the addressee, respectively. The template looks fine on the screen with
the text appearing normally in the text boxes, but when i go to print,
the page comes out blank. I did not put a no. 10 envelope into the
printer, because i wanted to test it out on a regular 8.5x11 sheet
first. The page comes out blank. I've already tried this on two
printers. What is going on?! I can't figure it out. I don't have a lot
of experience with word processors--am I doing something fundamentally
wrong? Help would be greatly appreciated--thanks.

2. Make a text box visible if a different text box has text in it

Question for Marsh if possible.
I have a text box named P1Bill1Name and...
Another text box named P1Bill1Paid.
If P1Bill1Name has text in it I want P1Bill1Paid
to be visible. I can do it easily with a line of code.
.P1Bill1Name.SetFocus: If .P1Bill1Name.Text = "" Then .P1Bill1Paid.Visible =
The problem is I have 50 Paid textboxes. I want to use a function
with a variable for the Paid text box....

Public Function MakeVisible()
Dim ctlCurrentControl As Control
Dim ctlPaid As Control
Set ctlCurrentControl = Screen.ActiveControl
Set ctlPaid = TextBox
Select Case ctlCurrentControl.Text
Case Is <> ""
'ctlCurrentControl.Name = P1Bill1Name
ctlPaid = Left(ctlCurrentControl.Name, 7) + "Paid"
'ctlPaid.Name = P1Bill1Paid
Me(ctlPaid).Visible = True
Case Is = ""
Me(ctlPaid).Visible = False
End Select
End Function

The Screen.ActiveControl works great but the
ctlPaid doesn't seem to work. I get the error "Object Required."
What am I doing wrong?
Please Help!
