Need a button on a web page, that can auto print to the default printer (meaning, without the print options box popping up)
Posted on 2003-03-23
To be more specific im looking for this button to do three things upon clicking it:
1. Take the data that the user inputs via a form on the same page (Name, Company, Person visiting, Phone number etc...)and add it to a .CSV file.
2. Print a selcect few of the form fields (Name and Company + predefined logo) to a label printer (the only printer on the machine which is attached to lpt0) with out any other boxes popping up.
3. Move to a confimation page.
So I have 1. and 3. figured out and working with frontpage server extensions. Is there any way i can make this same button print immediately without asking the user to choose a printer? ActiveX control maybe?
I know on the Microsoft web site they have done this in the MCP section when asking to print a transcript of your exams. there is a button that does just want i want. but i know there is some ActiveX control code attached to it, and am looking for someone who has free code to let me use, or for someone to explain how it is done, or to point me in the right direction for a tool that will help me do that, and how to use that tool. (i have Microsoft ActiveX control Pad).
