I need add a button to the IE 6 Toolbar that will open the print dialog box -- as if the user was clicking on File/Print.

The entire File menu has been disabled, and for security reasons users don't have the option of right-clicking  to customize the toolbar and add Print Preview.

I know how to add an icon to the toolbar using the Group Policy. But I can't seem to figure out how to write a simple vbs file that will invoke the print dialog box. The script is what I need help on.

Hi, try this in your VBS file:

'=======
' First create an Exec menu item in IE by following this article:
'http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa753591.aspx

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objIE = objShell.Windows.Item

objIE.Document.ParentWindow.Print
     
Set objIE = Nothing
Set objShell = Nothing
'=======

Regards,

Rob.
