Last Modified: 2010-07-27
I'm using a TWebBrowser to display a gif image from a web-server.

It seems like it's no way to print the image that are displayed.

Is tehere a good solution for this.. Can I use some other component to print the image or to download it in the temp dir and print it from there....

have you tried printing like so (quoted from,

Q: How do I Print?

A: There are a couple of ways to print. The first example works in IE 4.x and up, but you'll have to use the second example in IE 3.x:

  vaIn, vaOut: OleVariant;




procedure TForm1.PrintIE;
  CmdTarget : IOleCommandTarget;
  vaIn, vaOut: OleVariant;
  if WebBrowser1.Document <> nil then
      WebBrowser1.Document.QueryInterface(IOleCommandTarget, CmdTarget);
      if CmdTarget <> nil then
          CmdTarget.Exec( PGuid(nil), OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, vaIn, vaOut);
      // Nothing

Note: If you're not using Delphi 3.02 or higher, you'll have to change

. And you really should upgrade to 3.02, if you're using 3.0 or 3.01.
