VB.Net ReportDocument(), option to Print to non-default Printer

Hello,

I have a Crystal Report that prints from my VB.Net application.  

Currently, I send the document directly to the printer, but Client is now asking for a way to select a Printer instead of going to default printer.

Here's my print event code:

Dim LabelReportDoc As New ReportDocument()

reportPath = Application.ExecutablePath
reportPath = reportPath.Substring(0, reportPath.LastIndexOf("\") + 1)
reportPath = reportPath & "DeloLabel.rpt"

LabelReportDoc.Load(reportPath)
LabelReportDoc.SetDataSource(dsLabel)

Is there a way to modifiy this to load into a PrintDialog Control?

I've done a Crystal Viewer controls before and know these have a Printer option here but would like to add this dialog to my form if possible.

Thanks,

Don't know if this will work.  Also it may cause problems if the printers use different printer drivers.
