How do I retrieve the selected paper source from print dialog box

printer dialog , papersource , Austria
  • 12 years ago
    Using Visual Studio 2005, VB I am displaying a standard printer dialog box and retrieving the printer name the user selects, to pass to Crystal Reports to print a report. I also need to retrieve the papersource to pass to Crystal, but there doesn't seem to be an obvious way of getting it. I can get all the paper sources for the printer selected, so I could put up my own dialog to get the papersource but this does seem a bit much double-handling. Am I just missing something in the Printer Dialog? Thanks in anticipation.
