Question ID: 216143
I have a asp page that has a print button, when clicking the button it pops up the print dialog box. That is fine, but I want it to automatically be set at landscape, legal, manual feed. I am able to accomplish legal and manual feed, but the landscape does not stick. I am using IP Printing and set up the printer with all settings needed. The printer's use is only for this report. So how can I get this to print. I have heard you cannot, unless you install and active x that is fine but have no clue how to write one. What I am wanting is a way to do this, if using active x the code as well to make this happen. My OS is 2000. Any questions let me know. Thanks

Nickweb, I'm glad the Meadroid control will solve your problem. Here is the information again: Meadroid offers a nice component called ScriptX. I know several people who have used this with great success to get full browser print control. Meadroid ScriptX http://www.meadroid.com/sx_intro.asp ScriptX Documentation http://www.meadroid.com/scriptx/docs/printdoc.htm?static I believe that this is a free and freely distributable component. It only works for Microsoft Interent Explorer. Search Strategy: None - I knew of this control through past experience Good luck with your project! - Hammer - Hammer
