Create print preview button, save paper when printing in iNotes

With this code, iNotes users gain a "Print Preview" button.

Most users still print lots of e-mails. If your users are working in iNotes, they have no clue how many pages will come out. The solution: Change the Print button to a Print Preview button. Here's the code:

adapt the Forms6.nsf, subform s_printUI_IE :
change win.print() into :
var OLECMDID = 7;
var PROMPT = 1;
var WebBrowser = '&ltOBJECT ID=
"WebBrowser1" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0 
document.body.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeEnd', WebBrowser);
WebBrowser1.outerHTML = "";
