[archive] Windows Print Dialogue

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 18 January 2005]

I would like to be able to invoke the same Windows print dialogue from a push button that launches when you press the print icon in Acubench. Is there a way to do this?

Regards

Using

Call "win$printer" using winprint-setup-old
is the solution. Brings up the printer selection screen first.

Is this something that has been added to the AcuBench just recently?

Only asking because I specifically asked AcuCorp if this could be done and was told no.

I know its part of "WIN$PRINTER" and not acubench.
My point is just that "most" windows applications bring up the printer selection first instead of the way WINPRINT-SETUP works.

I specifically remember asking if the way WINPRINT-SETUP-OLD works was available, and was sort of told "No, you'll have to write it yourself".
