We are designing a new UI for our app, and every screen will have print
functionality. We don't want to use the bog std method of providing a print
button. Has anybody got any good ideas please ?

One idea is to provide an extra tab on every screen called Print Preview !!
Any better ideas ?

Why not add a button next to the "minimize" "maximize" "close" buttons on
the forms captions bar?
That way the button would not be intrusive and is always accessible.

Hi,

There is a print preview control in addition to the print
preview dialog.
