I am trying to customize a print dialog in a MFC app.
I want the "pages" option to be preselected.

In CMyView::OnPreparePrinting(CPrintInfo* pInfo)
I added this at the end of the function:
      pInfo->m_pPD->m_pd.nFromPage = 10;
      pInfo->m_pPD->m_pd.nToPage = 20;
      pInfo->m_pPD->m_nFlags |= PD_PAGENUMS;
      return DoPreparePrinting(pInfo);

When the print dialog comes up, the "all" option is preselected.
