Trying to suppress display bax

5 posts in this topic

hey guys,

here is the code i use to print a html file

If FileExists($p_file) Then RunWait(@COMSPEC&' /c rundll32.exe ' & @SystemDir & '\mshtml.dll,PrintHTML "' & @TempDir&"\PickingSlip.html" & '"',@TempDir,@SW_HIDE)

WinWaitActive("Print","&Print")

Send("!p")

The problem I have it that I want to suppress the printer box from popping up. So it must jut send the job to the default printer

Thanx for the help!

Or fo you guys have another way of printing a html file i have tried

$file = @TempDir & "\PickingSlip.html"

FileWriteLine($file,"<b>Bold text</b>")

$oIE = _IECreate ($file,0,0)

_IEAction ($oIE, "printdefault")

_;IEQuit ($oIE)

but have had no luck there either it doesnot even want to print

Or you can just try it the simple way, rite from the help file:

#include <File.au3>
_FilePrint ( $s_File [, $i_Show] )

instead of RunWait, use Run.

It wont block and you can handle the 'printer box' in AutoIt...

Thanx Piccaso worked perfectly!
