     I need to print barcodes to a secondary printer on the client's machine.  This is a web app though, so I'm not sure in VB, Javascript, or anything else how to access a secondary printer and send a print to it.  Help!

I got this msg in Javascript section:

activeX objects are hte only thing that will allow you to access a specific printer on a client's machine

window.print( ); a javascript function will print it to the default printer

Anyone here know anything about these activeX print objects?
