Installed Printers - Printer Selection

P: n/a
Hi,

We want to make it possible for our Users to link a printer to a document
type.
Doing that we need to know how we can load the installed printers on the
client system and how we can autoselect an printer using JavaScript

Thanks in advice

Client-side JavaScript does not have the capability to select a printer or
control any aspects of the printing process (beyond bringing up the system
default print dialog with window.print()). CSS gives you some print
formatting control through @media print { display:none; } type constructs and
page-break-before/after.

Perhaps the ActiveX control described at <url:
http://jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ4_23 /> may provide the functionality you
require.
