how to let script open an printer property dialog box and screen capture it?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I got the screen capture part, but have no idea how to open the printer property dialog box. Please help an AutoIt newbie.

Let say, to manually open it, go to (Control Panel --Printer--Printer123, then right click to open the properties).

Thanks for the help!

If you know the printer name already:
$sPrinterName = 'HPLaserJet5'
$sPrinterPath = '\\' & @ComputerName & '\' & $sPrinterName
Run('rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /p /n "' & $sPrinterPath & '"')
