Printing in Windows

Hi Jacqueline

Yes, the Printer libraries are included in the standalone build, I've let
Rev sort out libraries itself and also tried manually including. This has no
effect though

Code is :

on mouseUp
   --answer printer (just me experimenting)
   --answer page setup (Just me experimenting)
   get the PrintPaperOrientation
   Put it into Old_Orientation
   Set the PrintPaperOrientation to "Landscape"

   set the printmargins to 72,30,72,30
   Set the PrintScale to 0.75
   Set the LockScreen to True
   set the visible of group "TAB" to false
   Set the visible of button "Print" to false

   Print this card

   set the visible of group "TAB" to True
   Set the visible of button "Print" to True
   Set the LockScreen to False

   set the visible of fld "Printing" to True
   -- This is just a dummy to the user while I wait 2 seconds 
   wait for 2 seconds
    set the visible of fld "Printing" to False
   Set the PrintPaperOrientation to Old_Orientation
end mouseUp

Any help appreciated
