I've got a CRichEditCtrl in a CDialog, and I want to print its content.  I don't have a CDocument class, or a CRichEditView class, so I guess I don't have the framework's printing support.  Any ideas on what to do?  Thanks!

To print context of the control use WM_PRINT message passing printer HDC as WPARAM

WM_PRINT will only print what's visible in the control at that moment.  (If it even works with RichEdit 1.0; I don't think the control supports it.)

Would it be possible for me to stream the data from my CRichEditCtrl into a CRichEditView, and to have the CRichEditView handle the printing?  If this can be done, is there a way that I can do it without actually drawing the CRichEditView window?  Can I just instanciate (but not display) a CRichEditView, stream my RTF data into it, and have it print?  If any of this is possible, what is the technique, and do you know of any examples?  THANKS!!!!

Call CEditViewCtrl::FormPage. It works!

Umm... I don't know why I accepted yangjun's answer.  

His solution, to use CEditViewCtrl::FormPage() is puzzling because as far as I can tell, there ISN'T such a class.  In addition to that, no classes have a FormPage() member function.  What am I missing here?
