Printer Common Dialog/Flags

How do you use the constants (ex. cdlPDAllPages, cdlPDPageNums) to return the value of the print common dialog box after the user presses OK? I need to know whether the user has selected All Pages, a page range, or just a selection, etc.

It's simple,

After calling CommonDialog1.ShowPrinter, get the properties of the CommonDialog1 control:

CommonDialog1.ShowPrinter      ' display Printer common dialog box.
iCopies= CommonDialog1.Copies
ifrom = CommonDialog1.FromPage
iTo = CommonDialog1.ToPage

To get the values of the Flag property, use a bitwise and to read the state of the option button.

CommonDialog1.Flags = cdlPDAllPages Or cdlPDSelection
CommonDialog1.ShowPrinter
If CommonDialog1.Flags And cdlPDSelection Then
  MsgBox "Selection"
Else
  MsgBox "All Pages"
End If


Hope this helps
