    Find and Print dialogs

    How do I use the Find and Print common dialogs in my program? and for these do would I have to write my only function that they call?

    You could always STFW

    Try MSDN.....that carries full info on these APIs as well as examples

    Thanks to the code that you had posted in the past I have been able to print. In that code you used TextOut, instead I chose to use DrawText, but only 4 and half line of text will print. Do you know why?

    Code:
    void doPrint(HWND hwnd)
    {
    	PRINTDLG pd;
    
    	DOCINFO di = {
    	sizeof(DOCINFO),
    	"Fordy's Doc",
    	NULL
    	};//This gives details on doc...like its name when spooled
    
    	ZeroMemory(&pd,sizeof(PRINTDLG));//saves initiliasing to zero
    
    	pd.lStructSize = sizeof(PRINTDLG);
    	pd.hwndOwner = hwnd;
    	pd.Flags = PD_RETURNDC;//This gives DC to printer selected
    	pd.nCopies = 1;
    	if (PrintDlg(&pd)==TRUE) 
    	{
    		HWND hEdit = GetDlgItem(hwnd, IDC_MAIN_EDIT);
    		char buffer[80] = "";
    		RECT rcClient;
    		GetClientRect(hEdit, &rcClient);	
    		GetWindowText(hEdit, buffer, 80);
       	 // GDI calls to render output. 
    		if(StartDoc(pd.hDC,&di)>0 && StartPage(pd.hDC)>0){//new doc...new page
    		DrawText(pd.hDC,buffer, strlen(buffer), &rcClient, DT_WORDBREAK);
    		EndPage(pd.hDC);//end of page
    		EndDoc(pd.hDC); //end of doc
    		}
    	    // Delete DC when done.
    	    DeleteDC(pd.hDC);
    	}
    }
