I Need To Print Web Pages As They appear Onscreen

I'm currently using a program that runs on Delphi2, and this program contains an ActiveX Internet Browser tool that lets the user view web pages on the WWW. I've built a "Print" option to allow the user to print any web-page he/she likes, but at the moment all I'm getting is the source code being printed out, is there anyway I could print the web-page as it appears on the screen rather than the source code ???.... here's the procedure I'm using, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.....




procedure TfrmWebMain.Print1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  MyFile: TextFile;
begin
  if printdialog1.execute then begin
    AssignPrn(MyFile);
    Rewrite(MyFile);
//    Writeln(MyFile, DocSourceFrm.Memo1.Lines[0]);
    Writeln(MyFile, HTML1.SourceText);
    System.CloseFile(MyFile);
  end;
end;

It is obvious from the code you are getting the source code (HTML1.SourceText). Please let me now which component are you using to do this.

I can offer you an answer for using the Microsoft's ActiveX Internet Explorer component and printing the pages exactly as they should appear with Delphi2 or Delphi3.

Hi There Kolarb,

           I don't exactly know what the component I'm using is called, but I do that it is an ActiveX Internet Browsing tool. I hope the code below for the component helps in anyway, send me what you know, even if it might not be what I need, perhaps I can try it out. Thank you for your time...

OK - here it is - the most simple way.

Get Delphi3, look into demos/cool
they've done it all for you...
