I am opening up a pdf document, filling the fields with data and want to print the document. I am having troubles with the print part. I was thinking of perhaps counting the number of pages in the document and storing that value in printpagessilent method (the second 0 is the nLastPage), but I am unsure on how that is accomplished.

The following code worked great, but unfortunately it brings up a print dialog screen and you would always have to click the ok button. I need to print the pages silent.
 
acroApp.MenuItemExecute("Print")
 
The following code works fine if you have a set number of pages. 
avDoc.PrintPagesSilent(0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

Hi,

how about trying:

int pagenum = (avDoc.GetNumPages() - 1);
avDoc.PrintPagesSilent(0, pagenum, 1, 0, 1);

Hi Raisor,

Well I am on the right path because I saw the use of GetNumPages in the SDK Summary of OLE objects and methods section that I downloaded from Adobe but whenever I tried to use it, it is not available with the intellisense. I tried the suggestion you sent anyway and an error, (like I thought it would do) states "Acrobate.CAcroAVDoc does not contain a definition for 'GetNumPages' and no extension method 'GetNumPages' accepting..."

Perhaps I am missing an Adobe library file? I am using Adobe 8 Professional.

Best Regards,
Dave

Hi,

I'm not sure if you've added the correct references!

You may have a look at this thread: http://groups.google.com/group/adobe.acrobat.sdk/browse_thread/thread/3d2da62344fc5097

... it should give you an idea about the correct references.

Hello
In C# I had to use the following code to get access to the pDDoc methods.
           CAcroPDDoc pdDoc = new AcroPDDocClass();
To get the PDDoc, (whic contains the method GetNumPages) associated with a particular AVDoc object, your supposed to use the GetPDDoc method. Have any ideas on how to join the two together?
I got as far as:
int pageNum = (avDoc.GetPDDoc(pdDoc.GetNumPages()-1)); but it's wrong because there is no overload for method 'GetPDDoc' takes '1' arguments.

Best Regards,
Dave

Hi,

Let's try it this way:

CAcroPDDoc pdDoc = (Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc)new Acrobat.AcroPDDocClass();
pdDoc.Open("C:\\YourPath\\YourPDF.pdf");
int pageNum = pdDoc.GetNumPages()

Hi,
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I didn't realize you had to open up the pdDoc after creating it since I thought creating a new instance of the PDDoc Class was a way to just join to the AVDoc class, (which had already opened the file). Anyway, the final code below works great and I appreciate all your patience and perseverance ! Give yourself a big pat on the back for this one.

            CAcroPDDoc pdDoc = new AcroPDDocClass();
            pdDoc.Open(FORM_NAME); //FORM_NAME is the const string of the file name used with avDoc
            int pageNum = (pdDoc.GetNumPages()-1);

            avDoc.PrintPagesSilent(0, pageNum, 0, 0, 1);
