Re: Can i get windows print dialog box in LabView? How?

Hi,
i tried doing your way, but it says "error -2147221230 occured at unknown system error in showprinter.vi"
on analysing i saw that, the refnum passes '0' as output to property as well as invoke node. suggest me the appropriate, either another way of doing it or rectifying(if needed) in the present solution.

Kinnary

hi,

well, there's a

PrintDlg in Comdlg32.dll, but that function needs a bad structure as input.

Hi Chris,
Both the solutions, show printer dialog box and printing of the vi, both are working fine individually. how do i co-ordinate both of them. mean i want the user to select the printer name from printers' dialog box. please suggest the soon.

Kinnary,

The example program titled Print Panel to Selectable Printer will allow you to first select a printer, and then print the front panel of the current VI. This example is designed to be used as a SubVI.

Please post the "Print Panel to Selectable Printer.vi".  The above link is broken. I need a vi like this.

 

Thanks.
