PDF printing directly to printer

2002-09-17 07:48

I wonder if it is possible to print directly to a printer from web browser without opening up acrobat reader. In my case, the pdf content gets generated by jasper on server based on some form selection user submitted. The reason I don't want to show reader is because the pdf data are preprint form data, i.e. the scattered data are to be printed on some pre-printed forms. The data don't look anything meaningful by themselve.


Can this be done? Thanks.

I would be possible using an applet.

I'll provide a sample to show all that in

the next release.


If you are running on linux/unix systems, you can

print PDF files directly from command line using

Acrobat. Check the Acrobat Reader documentation

for details.

You could create a servlet or something to launch

Acrobat printing functionality on the server.


Thank you,

Thanks, Teodor. BTW, the new whenNoDataType option works great. Thanks!
