Hello mohammedf,

I don't believe it is possible to achieve your requirement.
However, Have you considered to create a print version of your page in PDF format.
This way, there will be no footer.

Dear Mohammedf

As far as printing of web pages goes -> Its not easy to controll but

If you have a css for printing the webpage then you can use something like
div#hearder{display:none;}  
div#footer{display:none;}  

If not then you are better of using a pdf which you dont want to use - can understand why.

The you can use activex to get the job done -> not easy at all - in this case you will have to install an object in the users system and access it for printing but you situation is that user are printing via the option provided in the browser. So in that case you really cant controll what they print.

Then best option would be create a print html friendly page button and use CSS for printing -> this should do the trick

Thanks

hi AsishRaj:

Thanks for ur answer

>>If not then you are better of using a pdf which you dont want to use - can understand why.

this is because i want the client to print the page just for a spesicfic number of times , so he will not be able to print it whenever he want ,, and if he /she has PDF file , then prinint it n times is a problem for me

Regarding CSS , how can i tell the page that the URL will be in the invisible DIV , the url is appeared only in printing , not in the page it self , ie not in aspx page ,
