Assuming I have managed to embed a WebBrowser control from the ActiveX SDK client window that I have created, how can I instruct it to print its content?

How do I print from the WebBrowser control?Although the WebBrowser control does
not support a print method, you can print its contents using one of two ways:
•Set focus to the Web Browser Control and send a key combination of Ctrl-P, or
•Call the GetDocument() method, which returns an *IDispatch. Using thisIDispatch

pointer, call QueryInterface() on IID_IOleCommandTarget. With the object pointer

returned, call Exec (NULL, OLECMDID_PRINT, 0, NULL,NULL):     LPDISPATCH
lpDispatch = NULL;    LPOLECOMMANDTARGET lpOleCommandTarget = NULL;    
lpDispatch = m_ctlWebBrowser.GetDocument();    ASSERT(lpDispatch);    
lpDispatch->QueryInterface(IID_IOleCommandTarget,(void**)&lpOleCommandTarget);  

 ASSERT(lpOleCommandTarget);    lpDispatch->Release();    // print contents of
web browser control    lpOleCommandTarget->Exec(NULL, OLECMDID_PRINT, 0,
NULL,NULL);    lpOleCommandTarget->Release();
