Hi mkjoshi,

simply create a printer dc (see CPrinterDialog and PRINTDLG on how to do this) and call CWnd::Print() with the dc against your dialog.

hope that helps,

Here is what I do

void CMyDialog::PrintMe() {
    // Instantiate a CPrintDialog.
    CPrintDialog printDlg(FALSE, PD_ALLPAGES | PD_RETURNDC, NULL);
    // Initialize some of the fields in PRINTDLG structure.
    printDlg.m_pd.nMinPage = printDlg.m_pd.nMaxPage = 1;
    printDlg.m_pd.nFromPage = printDlg.m_pd.nToPage = 1;
    // Display Windows print dialog box.
    printDlg.DoModal();
    // Obtain a handle to the device context.
    HDC hdcPrn = printDlg.GetPrinterDC();
    if (hdcPrn != NULL) {
        CDC *pDC = new CDC;
        pDC->Attach (hdcPrn);      // attach a printer DC
        pDC->StartDoc("job");      // begin a new print job
        pDC->StartPage();          // begin a new page
        Print(pDC,PRF_CHILDREN|PRF_CLIENT|PRF_ERASEBKGND);
        pDC->EndPage();            // end a page
        pDC->EndDoc();             // end a print job
        pDC->Detach();             // detach the printer DC
        delete pDC;
    }
}

This is essentially what Zoppo is saying.
