Java Script and Adobe Acrobat

I am building a form in Adobe Acrobat and I would like a button on the form that will print a PDF that is NOT being viewed. I know Adobe allows some Java script behind the fields but I do not know how to write script to print the current form and especially a form not being viewed.  The form in question is located on a web server and is accessible via http:

Example:  I have myForm.pdf open.  It contains 3 checkboxes for form1.pdf, form2.pdf, and form3.pdf.  I click checkboxes by each of these forms, then click a button to cause each of these forms to be printed.

Any ideas?

I've found the AcroJS.pdf file that ships with Acrobat very helpful (I'm not good a scripting either!)

on your 'print' button, you can use javascript to check the value of each checkbox field, and if 'on', print the .pdf.

(I don't have the AcroJS in front of me, so I cannot be more specific at this time)

var check1 = this.getField(checkbox1)
var check2 = this.getField(checkbox2)
var check3 = this.getField(checkbox3)

{
if
check1.value == 1 then print

not correct but you get the idea...

Can you go further with the print portion of the code?
