Cancel Button on Print Display Box not Canceling Print

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the cancel button does not cancel printing a datawindow?

Its a simple dw_1.Print(TRUE). When clicking the Cancel Button it still sends the datawindow to the printer for printing.

I've done a lot of searching but cannot figure this one out.

Thank in advance

Hi Dom71555,

Maybe this will help.
Assuming that you are using dwcontrol.PrintCancel()
Have you checked the return value?
Documentation indicates it will return –1 if an error occurs, Null if the dwcontrol is null.

Another thought is if it is a small print job, the print spooler might have already passed the job along before the cancel operation gets executed.
