If I put the poPageNums option ON for the PrintDialog, it doesn't enable the corresponding entry fields. Is it a bug?

Ronit,

If I do that, the dialog doesn't come up. I did some experimentation and found that to let the dialog come up I just need to enter some number in maxpage. But, again that is not the behavior I want. I don't know how many pages are in my huge printout and with the above approach, the ALL text becomes "All 99 pages?" which I don't want.

Finally, I found that if I just set maxpage to -1, it leaves the ALL text untouched and also enables the entry of page numbers as in Windows 3.1. So, this is the solution I will use.

However, I want to thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
