    About Setting Print Options ..

    Hi ..

    I am using PDF Creator printer to print my files. I have set it as default printer.

    It displays two dialogs .. "Printer Setup Dialog" and "Dialog asking filename and other details to save to file".

    I want to avoid these two dialogs. But EndDoc calls the other dialog by default.

    How to do this ?

    pl guide ..

    Arjay Sir ,


    Code:
    void CftsexofflineviewerView::PrintData() 
    {
    	// TODO: Add your command handler code here
    	
    	CftsexofflineviewerDoc *pDoc = GetDocument();
    	ASSERT_VALID(pDoc);
    
    	CDC dc;
    
    	CPrintDialog dlg(FALSE);
    	CPrintInfo pi;
    	dlg.GetDefaults();
    	dc.Attach(dlg.GetPrinterDC());
    
    	DOCINFO di;
    	::ZeroMemory(&di, sizeof(DOCINFO));
    	di.cbSize = sizeof(DOCINFO);
    	di.lpszDocName = _T("TRY");
    	
    	pDoc->TagPrintTubesFlag = 1;
    	m_nMaxPages = pDoc->TagPrintTubeCount;
    
    	if (!(OnPreparePrinting(&pi))) return;  //  Here Standard Print Setup Dialog (By DoPreparePrinting(pInfo) call. )
    
    	OnBeginPrinting(&dc, &pi);
    	dc.StartDoc(&di);
    			
    	OnPrint(&dc, &pi);
    		
    	dc.EndDoc();     // Here PDF Printer Save File Dialog function
    	OnEndPrinting(&dc,&pi);
    }
    I need to avoid both of the standard Print dialog boxes. I want to give File name and Path to PDF Creator Printer to save the data .
    I have set PDF Creator Printer as default and have set the resolution , paper size etc.
    I have read about setting PDF Creator printer but could not understand how to do that.

    First, please, edit your post to correct the closing Code tag. It must be a slash, not a backslash there.
    Second, did you try to set the lpszOutput member of DOCINFO struct?

    VictorN Sir , I tried lpszOutput member of DOCINFO struct .. I filled it with required output file name . It created a file but that file was not in PDF format. PDF reader failed to open it. What additional settings I will need ? Pl guide

    What .ini do you mean? MSDN article DOCINFO doesn't mention any ini!
    Perhaps you owuld need to specify lpszDatatype member of DOCINFO?
    And sorry, I never tried to print into .pdf file, so cannot help you more.

    I use Win2PDF and it allows me to set a file name/location/quality before I print to Win2PDF, no dialogs pop up and nothing to output before saving as a PDF file...

    I have been using this print driver since about 2006 with great success, but it's not free but close and worth every dollar.

    Just a user, not connected with them in any other way.
