IE print

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am trying to print a pdf file within IE window.

#include <IE.au3>

;$objIE = _IECreate($CmdLine[1],0,0)

$objIE = _IECreate("http://www.gwu.edu/~map/pmap/GW_CampusMap.pdf",0,1)

_IEAction ($objIE,"printdefault")

_IELoadWait ($objIE)


_IEAction ($objIE,"quit")


It works with any other pages but pdf.

Can anyone help me? Thanks

I believe you need to "print" from Acrobat Reader, not IE. When you open a .pdf in IE, it creates an embedded Reader. There may be a way to use IE's print, but I can't experiment atm. I suggest looking into Adobe Reader API to find a print call there.

Mike is correct - and I know of no IE API tricks to do this for you.


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

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?
