How to print external .pdf file with flash movie

I have a flash action script code which can open a .pdf file in browser i.e ( Internet explorer or firefox )

on (release)
    getURL("PDF/Desg_28.pdf", "_blank");

But I was looking for to print this external .pdf page direct from a flash movie or botton without showing this .pdf file.

Any help is really appreciated thank you,

Not possible. Web programmers are restricted to opening the print dialog window on the client computer with window.print(). Because you're dealing with system resources, you'd have to write a custom active-x control.
