Print HTML from Visual Basic


The purpose of this article is to explain how to get the WebBrowser to print (i.e. there is no standard print method)

Original Author: Philip Leitch

Code

I was creating a form to be printed by HTML, then, after creating the form, realised that I didn't know how to print the HTML. I looked into it further and found some obscure way in MSDN and some message boards to set focus (through Windows API) to my HTML WebBrowser control and send it a Control P key. The problem is that that only brings up a print dialogue. I didn't even want to show the HTML form, let alone ask the user to select which printer. I searched further and found a workable solution. Here it is:




frmHTML.WebBrowser1.Navigate("C: empRequest.htm")


frmHTML.WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, 0, 0
