Closing a PrintPreviewDia log with the escape key

Hi There,

I am trying to add the option to close a PrintPreviewDia log using the
escape key.

Firstly is there an option when creating a PrintPreviewDia log that
would allow me to do that?

I have tried to inherit the PrintPreviewDia log and override the key
events. That didn't work.

I also tried to catch the key events using a deligate. That also
didn't work

Thanks,

Peter.

Well you could try to send a WM_Close message to the window on Esc key
press, is that what you tried? There seems to be a override for
ProcessKeyMessa ge, did you try that? There is also a ProcessKeyDialo g(), for
override. One of them should do it. I feel bad for suggesting Trial/Error
methods, but if you have tried all of it, I will check my team that wrote
our printing compnent, see if we can help you better..Our app seems to close
it on cancel, I just don't have code now to see what it does.

Try overriding ProcessCmdKey and try catching the esc key there.

By default, my PrintPreviewDialog is coming out too small. What is the best way to control its size and position? Ideally, I'd just like to maximize it. Thanks!

Hello all, I'm trying to print using PrintPreviewDialog. What's happening is that the PrintPreviewDialog shows the correct information to be printed, but when I click the print icon, it prints a blank page. If I comment out the printPreviewDialog1.ShowDialog(); and just do a printDocument1.Print(); instead, it prints all the pages like a champ. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

How to customize PrintPreviewDialog, such that, addition of a new button, change the functionality of existing button should be possible programatically. Sample code will help a lot.

Is there anyway to hook the PrintDialog to the printer icon on the PrintPreviewDialog? I know that you can print a document using the PrintDialog but it does not allow previewing and the PrintPreview dialog does not allow you to select a printer - is there a good and simple way to get around these problems. My users would like to select a specific printer while looking at the Preview window.

I am using PrintPreviewDialog to preview a file. There is a button that the user can press, which seems to print the file to the default printer. I would like to capture a click on that button so that I can present a PrintDialog, print some files in a special way, etc. But there does not seem to be an event among the PrintPreviewDialog members to do this? Or perhaps I missed it? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Hello, Is there a way to call a printDialog from a printPreviewDialog (from print icon for example)? Indeed, the print icon in the printpreviewdialog prints directly the document without lunching the printdialog (i.e. the user can't choose the print parameters). Thanks a lot.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
