How to remove Head/Foot sections from WebBrowser Print...

Posted on 2008-10-22
Last Modified: 2008-10-22
I am using a web browser to print from my VB.NET application, however whenever I print, it places the page name on the top, page x-of-y on the top, the URL, and Date on the bottom.  I don't want to print this and need to know how to remove this.  For a basic example, drop a web browser onto a form, and add the code below..

Thanks, Andrew

Hi there

Heres how I do it.

        Dim RegKeyPath As String = "Software\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\PageSetup"
        Dim KeyWritable As Boolean = True
        Dim RegKey As RegistryKey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(RegKeyPath, KeyWritable)
        Dim TopMargin As String = "margin_top"
        Dim BottomMargin As String = "margin_bottom"
        Dim RightMargin As String = "margin_right"
        Dim LeftMargin As String = "margin_left"
        Dim Footer As String = "footer"
        Dim FooterValue As Object = ""
        Dim Header As String = "header"
        Dim HeaderValue As Object = ""
        If RegKey IsNot Nothing Then
            'Can be used to store the default values
            'Dim TmpTopMargin As String = RegKey.GetValue(TopMargin)
            'Dim TmpBottomMargin As String = RegKey.GetValue(BottomMargin)
            'Dim TmpRightMargin As String = RegKey.GetValue(RightMargin)
            'Dim TmpLeftMargin As String = RegKey.GetValue(LeftMargin)
            'Dim TmpFooter As String = RegKey.GetValue(Footer)
            'Dim TmpFooterValue As Object = RegKey.GetValue(FooterValue)
            'Dim TmpHeader As String = RegKey.GetValue(Header)
            'Dim TmpHeaderValue As Object = RegKey.GetValue(HeaderValue)
            RegKey.SetValue(Footer, FooterValue)
            RegKey.SetValue(Header, HeaderValue)
            RegKey.SetValue(TopMargin, CDbl("0.25"))
            RegKey.SetValue(BottomMargin, CDbl("0.25"))
            RegKey.SetValue(RightMargin, CDbl("0.25"))
            RegKey.SetValue(LeftMargin, CDbl("0.25"))
            'Can be used to set values back
            'RegKey.SetValue(Footer, TmpFooterValue)
            'RegKey.SetValue(Header, TmpHeaderValue)
            'RegKey.SetValue(TopMargin, CDbl(TmpTopMargin))
            'RegKey.SetValue(BottomMargin, CDbl(TmpBottomMargin))
            'RegKey.SetValue(RightMargin, CDbl(TmpRightMargin))
            'RegKey.SetValue(LeftMargin, CDbl(TmpLeftMargin))
        End If

Dim RegKey As Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey = Microsoft.Win32.Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(RegKeyPath, KeyWritable)
