modified Page Setup and Print Dialogs

Posted on 2004-11-07

I want to create an Delphi 6 Ent. application which have to print some data as on a Matrix as on a Laser printer.

So I want to create a modified Print Dialog with a Page_Setup Button and a Printer_type Checkbox. If Checkbox is checked then my Matrix's page setup dialog appears when user click on a Page_Setup Button.
If checkbox is not checked then standard Page Setup dialog appears  when user click on a Page_Setup Button.

I use Free Dialog WorkShop ver 1.4 to create a custom Print Dialog with a Page_Setup Button and a Printer_type Checkbox.

But there is NOT Page Setup Dialog in a free edition of  Dialog WorkShop ver 1.4.

So I have decided to use G.M. Wolsink's RichPrint Component with PageSetup dialog.

Can anybody help to modify this PageSetup Dialog?

I want to remove the Printer Button from it and move Ok and Cancel Buttons at the right .

1. User click Print
2. Modified Print Dialog appears (with a Page_Setup Button and a Printer_type Checkbox)
3. User can select printer to use.
4. User can choose the type of selected printer
5. User can click on Page_Setup Button.
6. If Printer_type Checkbox is not checked a modified Page Setup Dialog Appears (without Printer Button, because the user selected the printer in step 3)

Any suggestion?

    some of the things can be done using TPrinter class.

    uses ..., Printers;

      Printer  : TPrinter;
      Printer := TPrinter.Create;

    Thanks. But this is very superficially.
