...this should point you in the right direction.  it's in c#, but the translation shouldn't be difficult:

let me know if this isn't enough information.

not enought info
HeadspaceCommented:
lol...ok, perhaps you could provide a little more info for me then.  Will the printing happen on the server side or the client side?  Do you simply need to know how to print (from either client or server), or do you need to know how to validate the submitted information as well?

Actually I just found a way that fit my needs but maybe you can help me with this. I need to have a button enable only after all fields have been entered. But I can not refresh the page. Any ideas on that?
HeadspaceCommented:
I'd suggest leaving the button enabled, and simply running a client side javascript validation routine to prevent (or enable) the button's action from occuring.  The requiredfieldvalidator in .net might also be applicable here.  If you're determined to leave the button disabled until all fields have been completed, then you're stuck with javascript, and you'll probably have to use the keypress event to iterate the input fields everytime one of them gains focus.  Just remember, all client side validation can be bypassed.  Let me know if you have questions after reading the links/info below.  : )

javascript:

example of the keypress event:

<script lang="javascript">
document.onkeypress = keyhandler;
function keyhandler(e) {
    if (document.layers)
        Key = e.which;
    else
        Key = window.event.keyCode;
    if (Key != 0)
        alert("Key pressed! ASCII-value: " + Key);
</script>
