I am not sure if this will work but I am thinking that you might be able to use a print preview dialog to help solve this problem.   What if you added a global variable to hold the page count.  Then   when the user selects print you create a print preview which may be invisible that will cause the print handlers to fire incrementing your global page count variable.  Then when that is done you actually call the PrintDocument.print and use the new variable in your string for   1 of 5, 2 of 5  etc.  Sounds kind of clunky but it might work.

I dont want the document to be previewed though, because the document being printed doesn't need to be reviewed before it is sent to the printer...

its wierd when i print

a small gray box appears saying printing 1 of 2, 2 of 2, etc.

if only I could I use that info...

if you made the printpreview visible=false it wouldn't show would it?

I am not sure how the gray box knows how many pages.  I assume it probably buffers the print job some how in memory before sending it to the printer.  Sort of the concept with the printpreview but probably  more efficient.
