Agreed.

That said, this product supports eVC (C/C++ and MFC) as well, so writing a
wrapper DLL the PPB can call is fairly simple.

But printing a DW through an OCX is a pretty ugly thing.
Just as ugly as printing through an adapter DLL (like Roy suggested).

IMHO - printing should have been part of the OS, not tacked
on like a bag...

Anyways, it's Friday afternoon, I've put in my 10 hours,
time to go home and goto the playground with the kid!

Yeah, I've been following that one as well. I can't get to the PDF, but it
looks like it is a good solution for PPC applications and HP
BlueTooth/Infrared capable printers.

Here's a few of the links to PDFs:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/bpj07793/bpj07793.pdf

http://h30046.www3.hp.com/casestudies/media/PPC_Brief_2.pdf

Note that you can get to non-HP printers, shared printers and network
printers as well.
