Thanks

1. Open the dialog box. Make it active. Press Alt-PrintScreen. Now the image of the dialog box is placed in the clipboard.

2. Open Paintbrush: Use Edit | Paste. Now you can print the image.

Thanks a lot alex_r for being so quick. It works fine. Experts-exchange is really great. Actually now I need to make this task automatic: I want to add a button in the dialog box that would trigger the printing (so that the user would have nothing else to do than pushing this button to get the dialog box with all the data inside printed). Thanks a lot. I am truely very grateful to you.
