Fax Print Document

P: n/a
Hi All,

I have had success installing the windows xp fax service and sending files
using it (FAXCOMLib) from vb.net.

After installing the service, a 'Fax' option has been added to my list of
printers, which when selected opens a wizard asking for phone number etc
before sending.

My aim is to automate this process and allow users to choose the fax number
from our database of contacts but still send the printed output. It appears
that the FaxDoc only has the capabilities for faxing a file whereas in
effect i would like to fax the output of my PrintDocument object.

I realise I could create a bitmap of everypage then combine these bitmaps
into a tiff image to enable faxing, but this seems like a long winded way
around it. Is there an easier way? If not does anyone have an example of
creating bitmaps from the print routine?

Thanks for your time and help.
