Quick Print for Internet Explorer

Recommended Posts

alanp

Ok everyone here is what I'm trying to do, but with little success:

- User wants to do a 'quick print' in Internet Explorer. Thus, they do not want the 'print' dialog.

- I've figured out what I need to do is tell autoit to send ALT+P and F to 'print'

- The print dialog comes up, but I can't figure out how to tell autoit to 'see' that dialog and to just click the 'print' button automatically.

Any ideas?

The print dialog is just a standard window: "[CLASS:#32770; Title:Print]"

And the print button is just a standard button: "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:13]"

And the button has a standard hot key: ControlSend("[CLASS:#32770; Title:Print]", "", "", "!p") ; Alt-p = Print

Read the help file on WinWait(), ControlSend(), WinTitleMatchMode, and Controls.
