You have to use a TPrinter

var SelectedPrinter : String;

if PrintDialog1.execute then
  SelectedPrinter := printer.printers[Printer.PrinterIndex];

TPrintDialog alone will not print

And I thing so, but:

Name: Star NX-1500 (in Print Dialog's drop-down box)
Type: Star NX-1500
Where: LPT1

and

if "SelectedPrinter := printer.printers[Printer.PrinterIndex]" then ===>>> SelectedPrinter = "Star NX-1500 on LPT1"  :((((

I want the NAME. Most often Name is the same as the Type (I am not sure!!!) so in this case I want NAME OR TYPE.
