I have a dlg app created in VC5 using the app wizard. It has a CString output to an edit box. I initially didn't want to print out the contents but if there is a quick way to set this up I might. What would be the easiest way to do this?

There is a real easy way to print the contents of an edit control under windows.  Its a bit of a back door

1)  Copy the contents of the edit control into a character buffer
2)  Create a file, and write the contents of the character buffer to the file
3)  Close the file
4)  Do a WinExec command and execute the string "notepad /p filename.txt"
    make sure you put the same filename in as the one you created.

5) the file will automatically be printed by the notepad executable.   Additionally if you use SW_HIDE you can hide the notepad window from the user as it prints.

Good luck
