Hi, how can I print a form from a flash application. Doing some research here I looked at printjob, but I don't know how to use it either.  I am using Adobe Flash CS3
I wanna be able to print the text from text fields, add titles, some text, etc...
I am using AS2

Any help, recommendation or guide would be greatly appreciated

Thanx

Very simple:

_root.createTextField("textField_txt", 1, 10, 10, 200, 25);
_root.textField_txt.text = "Hello World";


var printJob:PrintJob = new PrintJob();
if (printJob.start()) {
      printJob.addPage("textField_txt", null, {printAsBitmap:true}, 1);
      printJob.send();
      delete printJob;
}

I already have the form with fields and everything I want to print. I just want to send that information to the printer, and I am using the code below :
It prints fine with the exception that it prints the PRINT BUTTON too, and I would like to get rid of that button in the printout

Thanx

import mx.controls.Button;
var printBut:Button;
var my_pj:PrintJob;

printBut.onPress = function() {
    // create PrintJob object
      
   my_pj = new PrintJob();
    if (my_pj.start()) {
        if (my_pj.addPage(_root)) {   //_root
            my_pj.send();
        }
    }
};
