'OLECMDID_PRINTPREVIEW' is an enum constant unknown to AutoIt. If you figure out what integer it represents and use the integer instead, then it will work.

Generally, if I'm looking for values like this then I would Google for the following:

#define OLECMDID_PRINTPREVIEW

The #define will most likely lead me to a page where I can see the actual value; it's a bit quicker than searching through MSDN etc.

sorry,

i would like to open html file, page setup and set it to landscape, and open print preview...

there is another way without send(key)? because winwaitactive not work very well

CODE

$sFile = "c:\temp.html"

$sURL = "file:///" & $sFile

$idf = _IECreate($sURL)

$idf.execWB(8,2)

WinWaitActive("Imposta pagina","",20)

Send("!+o")

Send("{ENTER}")

$idf.execWB(7,2)

thanks

Nothing else in the API I am familiar with, but use ControlSend instead of Send and you will have much better control.

controlsend work fine but the IE settings page does not have id or control class to identify it

AutoIt Window Info Tool return none in the control tab and I do not know like tracing it in order to send/set landscape or potrait settings

Suggest you start a new thread if you still need help with this. It has nothing to do with IE now and many of the people willing to help you with the new issue will skip over this thread.
