Hi

I want to put the focus on the webbrowser object when the form loads. Webbrowser object contans a word document. When i say print , it takes forever time. If i click on the document and then click on print it prints immediately.If i dont click on the webbrowser control and click on print it takes forever time. please advise.

The code for printing.

Private Sub mnuprint_Click()
    ' dislays the print dialog box and prints
    WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER
    Exit Sub
End Sub

This the code for printing the webbrowser contents. Any sugesstions or advise will be appreciated.

Thnkx

Does this speed it up ?

Private Sub mnuprint_Click()
' SET THE FOCUS on the webbrowser
    WebBrowser1.setfocus
    ' dislays the print dialog box and prints
    WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER
    Exit Sub
End Sub

Printing on the standard printer of the system:
WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, 0, 0

Try this:
'set a reference to microsoft word x object library
option explicit

dim wdoc as word.document
' in Document_complete event of webbrowser paste this:
if (pdisp is webbrowser1.object)
   set wdoc= webbrowser1.document
   'example of how to access Word DOM:
   wdoc.PrintPreview
   ' and so on...
end if

Hope it helps
