I have a site which displays application forms in HTML on a private entry web site.
I am trying to build a VB application that will go to the most recently received application on the site and send the HTML content straight to the printer with no user intervention (don't want the print dialog box to appear).
I may also need to set the printer's page orientation to Landscape in order to optimise the printed output.
I am planning to use an embedded Internet Explorer page in the VB form to receive the HTML and then send the rendered output to the printer. the contents will be rendered in an IFrame.
Am I mad doing things this way ? Is there a better or easier way of doing this ?
