Is it possible to replace the Print menu item with my own button? If so, how?

Hi Marc,

Yes, it is possible.
The complete solution will look like this:
1. Remove this item in the AddinInitialize event handler.
2. Add a new button to the File pop-up via ADXCommandBar and handle its click.
3. Handle the DocumentBeforePrint event to avoit Ctrl-P.

That's all.

Aha... Why do you replace this menu item? It seems to be enough to handle the DocumentBeforePrint event. In this case you handle the menu item, the print button and the Ctrl-P shortcut. :)

Look at our ADX Toys or Howtos. There are more samples how to handle events of add-in host applications.
