Print Dialogue

2 posts in this topic

I apologize for the newbie question but I have been looking through the site for hours without success.

I need to open and print to pdf a ton of XmL files. I have the files opening and the print dialogue window coming up but can't seem to get the script to do anything within that window. I used au3info to get the identifiers.

#Include <IE.au3>

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("c:\test.xml")

_IEAction($oIE,"print")

winwait("Print")

ControlClick("Print", "",1002)

Eventually I will need to get the names of the files in a folder but for now, I need to figure out how to do anything within the print window.

The goal is to:

Click the Save to File checkbox, enter the new file path and name and then hit print.

Thanks for any help.
