How select printer?

Posted on 2002-04-22

Basics:  VB6 sp5, CR8.0 on Windows/2000.

I have a Visual Basic application that calls a Crystal Report.  On the CRViewer control (printer icon) for the report, the user can currently pick the print range and the number of copies but not which printer they want to use.

How can I (using the CRViewer) present the available printers and allow the user to select which printer they want to use?

Thanks for the help.

Do you set values for .Printer.Name or .Printer.Driver? If so, don't.
