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
