JavaScript function to print a pdf file.

Hi,

I am trying to write a javascript function that gets called from a
within an asp.net application to print a pdf file(s) programmatically.
I am a pretty experienced developer in several languages, but I'm a
serious newbie when it comes to anything sounding like javascript. I
have searched the forums and found some code that (I think) will do
exactly what I am looking for. Unfortunatelly, I cannot get it to
work and was hoping someone who knows javascript could help me out.

Here's the code from an earlier posting:

<embed src ="<filePath>" width="0" height="0"
name="pdfFile">

<script_Language_="javaScript">
function print(){
document.all.pdfFile.print();
}
</script>
Here's my code:

<embed src ="<c:\drawings\>" width="0" height="0"
name="drawing7.pdf">

<script_Language_="javaScript">
function print(){
document.all.pdfFile.print();
}
</script>
I have also set the file path to include the file name and removed the
underscores from script_language_ and played with the <>, but still no
luck. Once I get a function that will work on its own, I can convert
it to run in the .net app.

Thanks

Hello, my code is lame, but it works for me. Obviously not all of it
is necessary, but it gives you an idea of some of the things I was
trying to do.

<html>
<head>
<script>
function doit() {
var x = document.getElementById("doodad");
//.document.plugins.whatever
x.click();
x.setActive();
x.focus();
x.print();
}
</script>

</head>
<body>
<embed id="doodad" src ="D:\Documents and
Settings\ron\Desktop\eth_cli.pdf" width="550" height="550"
name="whatever">
<button onclick="doit()">howdy</button>
</body>
</html>
