Hi mwebster,

  Instead of using

for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
  ////print my stuff
   if(i == 3)

try the following:
1. define variables int nstart, nend, numberOfLinesPerPage
2. add these to your OnPrint()
for(int i=nstart;i<nend;i++) {
  //do printing here

The catch is that you can make use of of pInfo->m_nCurPage to decide which page you are in now and how many lines you want to print for this page.

is there a way to dynamically set the number of pages my program is not printing what is on screen but rather what's on file from my database so some data will be greater than some and i don't want to set an arbitary ammount of pages in the OnPrepareDC function
thanx again

Hi mwebster,

  Can you try this:

1. Set the max page number to be a reasonably large value.
2. In your OnPrint() method, keep track of number of lines that has been printed on the current page. e.g.

OnPrint() {
while(1) {
//print m lines here
numberOfLinesPrinted += m;
if(numberOfLinesPrinted > maxNumberOfLinesPerPage)
let me know if there is any further problem. Thanks.

i thought about that but here's the problem
void MyView::OnPrint()
 print my stuff
   i want to end the page here
   and start new page

the loop restarts and prints the same thing on the next page
