Size of AxWebBrowser print preview window in C#

I have a class that creates an AxWebBrowser object in the
background, loads some arbitrary html content, then shows
the user a print preview. The only problem is, this print
preview is a tiny little window on the top left hand
corner of the screen.

Thinking that this may have something to do with the Print
Preview dialog not being able to detect from it's caller's
size so that it can set its own size equal to that of the
caller, I moved everything over to a form instead. That
worked, except that the whole point is to not show the
user the class/form that performs all the background
operations. Whenever the form is
minimized/hidden/notshown, the print preview dialog will
appear as a tiny little dialog box on the top left corner.
Only when the form is actually visible will the print
preview dialog take the size of the visible form. This is
highly annoying since what I am trying to achieve is
basically allowing the user to right click on something
(say a hyperlink) and select print. He/she will then be
shown a print preview of whatever the link points to.

thanks for any advice!

I have Access 2002 and I am writing this application with a custom menu bar that has a print preview button -- the start up options hide the design window.

Hi; I have a form window that places an AxWebBrowser control in it and I can display html fine. However, I am now trying to print (and save and e-mail) the page.
