Hi eddy

the #p on a frame says to the player.. This is the frame to print

printNum(0);  says to the player.. print this level.. and _root being  _level0 it will print everything on the stage..
in the frame marked with #p

You can control the print area in a frame by specifying the bmovie, bmax, or bframe parameters. (see the tutorial Aneesh has pointed you to)..

you could use.. printNum(0, "bmovie"); if you wanted to print say just the drawing filled with color..

or the whole stage by leaving out the 'bounding box' parameter.

hey thanks about the tutorial, It help me to understand but the practice I can't do it because the file that suppose I need to download to see how it work, doesn't want to work.

theorically, great but practically...mmmmmm... a little of trouble there.
Do you have another tutorial to see it work ?
But now I cna understant what Zeffer is talking about.

So, if I set my 2 movie clips and my 5 dynamic texts in the:
       Frame 6, layer 2

What  do I need to do to print it? my swf, is called "car.swf"

I knwot hat I need to create a print button in tha same frame, I will call my button print_btn

print_btn.onRelease = function()
 {
            if ((Number(getProperty("picture_mc", _totalframes))>0) and (Number(getProperty("picture_mc",  _framesloaded)) == Number(getProperty("picture_mc", _totalframes))))
     {
      print(#p:this._parent.picture_mc, "bmax");
     }
};

Is this right?  and Also what it means: 'Number','totalframe' and '_framesloaded'  
i though that totalframes is the frames that Ia hve used in my program that will be 6. Is this right?

Thank you experts for being so patience with me.

In addition to above,
you also need to put a frame label "#p" on frame 6
