I know this is the wromg group but there are no experts answering C++Builder question in the C++ forum.

I am using TCppWebBrowser o print a htnl document in C++Builder 5.01.

How can I stop the header (dopcument title and page #) and footers (filename abd date) being printed?

Thanks, Tom.

Here's the documentation for it. I do not do C++ builder but I think these links are what you are looking for. I think they are used like this:

ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, pvaIn, NULL);

If pvaIn is a VARIANT of type VT_BSTR, pvaIn specifies the path to a custom print template.

IDM_PRINT Command ID:

TEMPLATEPRINTER Element:

Rick,

Thanks so much, I had little - I was using ExecWB to print. I am not so sure how to deal with the IDM_PRINT commands and templates and if I can access is from C++Builder. SHDocVw.dll is wrapped which is how I can access ExecWB, but I am not sure about the rest.

From the article
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q236/7/77.asp
I can access the registry to temporarily alter the header Page infromation and the footer date. Perfect. That just leaves the additional footer filename info, I'm trying to figure how to get at that.

Thanks so much, Tom.

Rich,

What can I say, superb :-) Temporarily altering the registry setting for footer and header wiped everything including the html title in the header and file name in the footer. Which is exactly what I wanted in a few lines of code. Thanks again, you have really helped me out.

Cheers, Tom.

FWIW I couldn't get the Template to work in Delphi either.
