Hi

We are developing a web based application that needs to automatically print to a specified printer connected to the client pc from code without using the popup print dialog, is this possible ?

If not does anybody know of a work around or another method of acheiving this.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers

Closest thing you can do is create the page in Crystal Reports.  You can then tell it to print without a popup print dialog and is well formated too.  Only problem is that its being sent from the server not the client's PC to his/her's personal printer.  So it will only print to a specified printer on the server hosting the page.
