6 posts in this topic

Hi ALL!!!

i need some help with a little project i have,

i have a HTML report Generator that save the file on a temp dir,

when done my script need to print them automaticly to a printer on the computer,

because this task can be on a wierd times and run multiple times its have to be fully automatic,

i already saw the MSHTML.DLL,PrintHTML, the only results that i had from this command was "OK" windows for the print, do you know a way without this windows, that print directly to the printer i choose ?

i think if you use _FilePrint it would print the raw html, not how its displayed in the browser, my guess is that to make a script using controlsend to just press OK for you

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

when you do the

_IECreate("YOUR URL",0,0) that will run it hidden, the second 0 determines if its hidden or shown, a 1 would be shown)
