Printing to Chrome browser

I have a client who has a form that his clients print out.  In the Chrome browser, the bottom 1/4 inch of the form does not get printed.  The application is written in ASP.NET.  Any suggestion?

There are a number of options in the Print window for Chrome.  They can select not to print the header/footer, they can minimize the margins.  I do not see any selection for scaling the print image like you have in Firefox.

It is difficult to get things to print 'correctly' in web browsers because browsers are not paper oriented but screen oriented.  In addition, the users get to fiddle around with the settings trying to get it 'right'.
When you print a form using the ASP.NET, you have a printer object.

Using ASP.NET code you can control this printer object and sets its properties ,such as Shrink to fit , page size .

The scenario you mentioned can happen if ASP.NET improperly set the paper size of the printer.

To me this is a bug in the ASp.NET code. Have the developer of the code to debug the code and make sure printing properties such as the papersize are set correctly.
