Problem with CPrintDialog

I want to ask the printer-configuration without displaying the printer-configuration-dialogbox, so I programmed:

CPrintDialog printDialog(FALSE);

If I debug this codeline in VC++5.0 I always get a hwnd=0x0000. Does anybody knows, what's the cause for it ?

Thanks

FALSE == 0
CPrintDialog printDialog(0) == CPrintDialog w/ parent window handle 0.
Try "printDialog(this)".

Why can I nevertheless ask for the printer-configuration by programming:

CPrintDialog PrintDialog(FALSE);
PrintDialog.GetDefaults();  ???

Why does it work, also if I don't use '(this)' ???

Then you should use CPrintDialog's constructor instead of CDialog's constructure:
CPrintDialog(BOOL bPrintSetupOnly, DWORD dwFlags, CWnd* pParentWnd);
