Microsoft Office Publisher does not return UI control to the user until the event handler is executed. The event is called after all the drawing operations are completed (in other words, after the software's job finishes and the printing hardware takes over).

For more information about using events with the Application object, see Using Events with the Application Object.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to handle the AfterPrint event. It displays a message notifying the user that the document was printed.

Visual Basic for Applications
Private Sub pubApplication_AfterPrint(ByVal Doc As Document)
    MsgBox "Printing of " & Doc.Name & "is complete."
End Sub

For this event to occur, you must place the following line of code in the General Declarations section of your module.

Visual Basic for Applications
Private WithEvents pubApplication As Application

Then run the following initialization procedure.

Visual Basic for Applications
Public Sub Initialize_pubApplication()
    Set pubApplication = Publisher.Application
End Sub
