How can I suppress the MS Word print progress dialog by ChrisRChamberlain
Posted: 9 Dec 02 (Edited 13 Jan 03)

If you simply want to print an MS Word.doc and do not want to see either the print progress dialog or an instance of MS Word, try the following :-

LOCAL lcFile, oWord, oDocument, hWin, lnAnswer
lcFile = [C:\test\test.doc]

DECLARE INTEGER GetDesktopWindow IN WIN32API
DECLARE INTEGER LockWindowUpdate IN WIN32API INTEGER lnHandle

oWord = CreateObject([Word.Application])
oDocument = oWord.Documents.Open(lcFile)
            
oWord.Options.PrintBackGround = .F.

hWin = oMain.HWnd && Object reference to active VFP window
LockWindowUpdate(hWin)

lnAnswer = MESSAGEBOX([Do you want to print ];
    + lcFile;
    + [?],;
    4 + 32 + 0,;
    [Print file])
IF lnAnswer = 6            
    oDocument.PrintOut()
ENDI

LockWindowUpdate(0)
    
oDocument.Close()                
oWord.Quit()
RELEASE oWord

Have fun!
