I need a version of MSIE (mode kiosk) that only print (a kiosk version with a butoon of print).
 this is for a Information point with only mouse.
Other solution is to print from a button in Javascript or Java. I need to print one frame of the actual page.

The only solution:
- get a programming language like Delphi3, VisualC++, or Visual Basic
- get the 1300 version of MSIE
- embed it in your application (the process is veeerry simple and descibed in detail on ms knowledge base)
- add a button to your app
- the button sends sendkeys(ctrl-P) or olecommandtarget(Print)
- after that send a virtual enter keypress to avoid the options dialog
- the current page will print...

More details: sitebuilder network webbrowser sdk, knowledge base (all on microsoft.com)

The only problem we have is that we want to do it without show only the MSIE (kiosk). We will try to launch other browser only to print from a Javascript. This browser only print the page (one page in a frame with two frames) and die.
 Thanks for all.

I'm sorry but I did not understand what you wrote. As far as I know one cannot print a page using javascript. Perhaps in conjunction with an ActiveX control, otherwise no.
