Print Setup

I want to be able to access the 'Print...' choice that is under the file menu in my executable. Right now I am using the sys(1037) function. That gives me the page setup but it doesn't give me the ability to do the things the Print dialog box does. Is there any way I can access the Print dialog box?


RE: Print Setup

Yes !! it's possible but in some another manner .
When you prepaired any bar put this "_mfi_sysprint"
and give the bar name print.

This is for menu designer

or you can give this line in your prg

DEFINE BAR _mfi_sysprint OF <menu name (File)> PROMPT "\<Print..."

I hope you understand.

My Email is .

RE: Print Setup


I put the _mfi_sysprint in my menu but the selection choice comes up grayed out. What am I doing wrong. I use the bar # selection

But I can't get that to work. What I want to happen is when the user clicks the print button on a form. I want the user to be able to select which pages to print. This works with the to printer prompt command but how do you do this with the preview command?

Thanks again,
