Fill a combobox with current defined printers

Add this code to an empty form with a combobox or list box on it:
private Sub Form_Load()
    m_GetPrinters Combo1
    Combo1.ListIndex = 0

End Sub

' looking for all printers and filling objListOrCombo
public Sub m_GetPrinters(byref objListOrCombo as Object)
    Dim objPrinter          as Printer
    Dim intNbOfPrinters     as Integer

    intNbOfPrinters = Printers.Count - 1
    for Each objPrinter In Printers
        objListOrCombo.AddItem objPrinter.DeviceName
End Sub
