Hello,

Could you tell me please how to hide a popup window which comes up when we send a document to the printer? We have a task which we runs statements. Number of statements might be from 1 to hundrets. We render these statements separately, so we have to send them to the printer one by one and pupup comes up as many times as many statements we have. In this case I would like to hide it programmatically. After the process is over I would restore the original setting. I googled of cource and all I found is how to manually change this setting. Is there any way to do that programmatically?

Thanks,
Dmitry

It's a Windows registry setting which you could save, modify, then restore.  I'm no programmer but I'm sure you must be able to amend the key value

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings]
"EnableBalloonNotificationsLocal"=dword:00000001
"EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote"=dword:00000001

Local is for locally connected printers, Remote is for Network printers.  A setting of 0 turns notification off.

cheers

My suggestion to amend local registry would have worked.  Just no feedback from user!

Following an Objection by MarkieS, and after Moderator review, there seems to be at least one valid solution. Implementing recommendation of the contributing Expert(s).
