I have finally mastered printing including multiple pages. I have 2 things I am trying to do.

1.. Print a line of text to the printer in color (assuming printer supports color). I can't figure out how to set the color to print using paint.drawtext

2.. I want to create a rectangle area on the page filled with a color and have it serve as a background to the text printed. in short a colored rectangle with print in it. I can not do this. the rectangle covers the text when I try to do this. I get the rectangle in blue and the text in black but only one or the other will show.
