Major points for simple printing question in 95

I'm writing an app and doing the printing manually by adding code to OnPrint function.

My problem is that according to the help, each time OnPrint is called, it allows printing a specific page number.... i.e. first call, all printing goes to page 1, second call, all printing goes to page 2.

My question is :
In the middle of printing to the device context of OnPrint (ie. pDC), is there a way to change the page number that the printing is going to without exiting the OnPrint function and waiting for the next call?

Need answer ASAP!!

OnPrint function is passed pointer to CPrintInfo structure as second parameter. This structure has field m_nCurPage that is current page. I guess you can change this field at any stage.

I've tried that.  What happens is that what ever was printed on page n gets erase and the new data being printed goes onto page 2.

I just tried it.... did not work.  Again, it refreshes the age, but I lose the page I was printing on.

Any ideas??

you can't do it the way you want to. Its time to bow your head in shame and obey windows. Process the OnPrint function according to spec, let the Print and Print Preview functions get normal parameters. The problem is that the OnPrint function expects one page of data, if you go over you get overflows and that ,my friend, is bad news. Just print the appropriate page when it is asked for. If you need code to help parse the data into pages for you let me know.

good luck...
