try these two ways and see if they give error:

var
vInput,vOutput : OleVariant;
begin
 WebBrowser1.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT,OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT,vInput,vOutput);
end;

or this one:

var
vInput,vOutput : OleVariant;
begin
try
 WebBrowser1.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT,OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT,vInput,vOutput);
except
  on E: EOleException do begin
    if (E.ErrorCode <> -2147221248) then begin
      Raise;
    end;
  end;
end;

Hi,
do you have initialization etc as below:

var
I,O : OleVariant;
begin
WebBrowser1.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT,OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT,I,O);
end;

initialization
  OleInitialize(nil);

finalization
  OleUninitialize;

end.


at the bottom of your unit put these and try again.

hi,
uses activex;
(sorry i assumed you would already have that in your uses section)
if you include a proper messages handler you would need it,twebbrowser has many bugs and needs a message handler usually just to survive common tasks.
ps,
i always recommend embeddedwb from:
http://www.euromind.com/iedelphi/
as it is a far better implementation of the browser and has most of the bugs ironed out ;-)

hi Masoud ,
can you paste the whole exact unit here that gives the error.

i just done some tests,
new project -add twebbrowser and one button:
on buttonclick event add the print procedure.
now i get the error.

i know from this now that the reason in my case for the error is because the browser is empty (i have not assigned/loaded anything into it)

but if i now add a second button and put
webbrowser1.oleobject.navigate('www.blah.com')
then wait for it to finish loading then press the print button i dont get the error.
i would suggest do something like:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
I,O : OleVariant;
begin
if assigned(webbrowser1.document) then
WebBrowser1.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT,OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT,I,O)
else
showmessage('no document loaded');
end;


i hope this is the reason your error ocurs because it is easy to solve by doing as above (or out the print code in the twebbrowsers onDocumentComplete() event handler. :-)

let me know how it goes.
Regards Barry
