This should work:

void CMyDialog::OnPrint()
{
    DOCINFO     theDoc;
    CString     docName;
    int         tx,ty,sdc;

    docName="Document title";

    theDoc.cbSize       =sizeof(DOCINFO);
    theDoc.lpszDocName  =docName;
    theDoc.lpszOutput   =NULL;
    theDoc.lpszDatatype =NULL;
    theDoc.fwType       =NULL;

    CPrintDialog cpd(
          FALSE,
          PD_HIDEPRINTTOFILE|PD_NOWARNING|PD_PAGENUMS|PD_RETURNDC|PD_USEDEVMODECOPIESANDCOLLATE|PD_NOSELECTION,this);
    CDC* cdc;

    cpd.m_pd.nMinPage   =1;
    cpd.m_pd.nMaxPage   =m_nPages; // no. of pages
    cpd.m_pd.nFromPage  =1;
    cpd.m_pd.nToPage    =m_nPages;

    if(cpd.DoModal()==IDCANCEL) return;

    cdc =new CDC();
    cdc->Attach(cpd.m_pd.hDC);
    cdc->StartDoc(&theDoc);
    tx  =cdc->GetDeviceCaps(HORZRES);
    ty  =cdc->GetDeviceCaps(VERTRES);

  // this part (StartPage() ... EndPage()) may be repeated for each page to print
   cdc->StartPage();
   // painting ...
   cdc->EndPage();

    cdc->EndDoc();
    cdc->Detach();
    delete cdc;
}

Using the CPrintDialog (with the flag PD_RETURNDC set), you'll get a handle to a printer
DC in the CPrintDialog::m_pd.hDC. Then call StartDoc(), StartPage(), EndPage(), EndDoc().
Within StartPage() and EndPage() you can paint to the DC, and repeat this section for
each page ...

Hope this helped ...
