No way. And good thing too. Unless you really WANT 500 pages of garbage to spew from your printer without you controlling it.

I don't. Nor does anybody else. Not even in an intranet. ;-)

However if you really need it, you can get an activeX from http://www.meadroid.com/ the user will have to allow it though.

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the moderators on its resolution in a week or so. I appreciate any comments that would help me to make a recommendation.
 
In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear to me that it has value as a PAQ. Silence = you don't care

p.s.
Explanation is due to all here
No one responded, so I have to take the question as read. Michel gives a possible solution, but keyan wanted no browser dialog. If ActiveX is allowed at all, there would be dialog.
Basically it's impossible with standard javascript so points to lexxwern
