Display the Print Dialog Using PrintDlgEx

As I mentioned in my post from 9/29/2008, Microsoft removed the Printer button from the "Page Setup" dialog in Vista. It was reccommneded to use the "Print" dialog to change printer preferences. However, the "Print" dialog option is not always available on the menu, and there is no simple call to activate the dialog.
In my post from 9/29, I provided code for displaying the DocumentProperties dialog. This populates a DEVMODE structure from the Advanced Properties dialog for a specific printer. In today's post, I provide sample code for displaying the Print dialog using the PrintDlgEx API function. This is the dialog Microsoft recommendeds for setting printer options in Vista. This dialog populates a DEVMODE structure also, however, it includes the ability to select a printer and specify a print range too.

Paste this code into a PRG and run it. It will display user chosen options to the screen.
While this dialog is meant to replace missing functionality from SYS(1037) in Vista, this sample does not update your user preferences. You will need to update those based on the user action (see "Action" in the code below).
Note that the PrintDlgEx API function works with Windows 2000 and later.
