  • PrintDialog is an OS component.  PrintPreview is a .NET component.  No problem customizing PrintPreview:  Inherit it and do whatever you wish.  Big problem customizing PrintDialog:  design your own.

  • Is "localizing" different than inheriting?  If it is it must be a subset of inherit.  So yes, you can "localize" the PrintPreviewDialog by inheriting it.

  • I read that Article but it customizes only the title bar in the print  dialog box.
    How can we change the string of the labels in the dialog box using these API's Any ideas...
