    Question disabling the Print dialog box

    I am creating a stand alone web page for a kiosk and want to print out coupons. I have a script that will print the page or coupon but I keep getting the print dialog box coming up when I hit the print button. Is there a way to disable this box or tell the page which printer to print to?

    If your talking about the dialog box that sets the printers paper, caulity, ink, ect. I don't think that can be removed. Thats part of the computer so i don't think there are any scripts that can do that.

                        Here's the complete version:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
                        function printit(){ 
                        if (window.print) {
                        window.print() ; 
                        } else if (document.all) {
                        var WebBrowser = '<OBJECT ID="WebBrowser1" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0
                        CLASSID="CLSID:8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2"></OBJECT>';
                        document.body.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeEnd', WebBrowser);
                        WebBrowser1.ExecWB(6, 2);//Use a 1 vs. a 2 for a prompting dialog box 
                        WebBrowser1.outerHTML = ""; 
                        }
                        }
                        </script>
    
                        Then:
    
                        <a href="#" onclick="printit()">
    orrr...
    just a thisone® from bwuk n' john...:O)))

    Code:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
                        if (window.print) {
                        document.write('Please PRINT this page for later reference '
                        + '<form><input type=button name=print value="Print" '
                        + 'onClick="javascript:window.print()"><\/form> Have Great Day.');
                        document.close
                        }

    Print box

    No they did not work I get script errors on the second one. Maybe I am not putting in the correct variables in the first one?

    Here is an example of justame's code that works for me:
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Print Test</title>
    <script>
          function Print()
             {
              if (document.all) 
                 {
                   WebBrowser1.ExecWB(6, 6) //use 6, 1 to prompt the print dialog or 6, 6 to omit it; 
                    WebBrowser1.outerHTML = "";
                 }
             else
                {
                 window.print();
                 }
             }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <object ID="WebBrowser1" WIDTH="0" HEIGHT="0" 
        CLASSID="CLSID:8856F961-340A-11D0-A96B-00C04FD705A2"> 
        </object>
     <A HREF="#" onClick="Print()">Print this page</a>
    </body>
    </html>
    This is IE only though. For NS browsers you will still get the print box.

    Curious that :

    object.execWB(6,6);
    object.execWB(6,-1);

    prints without prompting, though MSDN claims

    object.execWB(6,2);

    shouldn't prompt an user (reference).

    Thinking malicious actions (like closing browser without prompting): what if someone prints material I don't want to print (eg adult) for me? This action could be done without me noticing it at all.

    True, I could also see some other potential annoying/unethical uses for scripts bypassing the print dialog box....Printing unwanted Ads for example. I realize that Kenguild has perfectly valid intentions/reasons for wanting the script, so it really doesn't apply to to his/her question and intended purpose.

    However, I believe that simply having to click 'OK' to to complete the printing of a page is a small price to pay to allow the user to control whether the printing occurs or not. I do realize that in the examples here the user would have to click a "Print Page" link to initiate the print, which they would obviously not do if they didn't want to print the page. But with a few modifications, this could all be changed, such as calling the function onLoad or disguising the link that calls the funtion (Ex: <a href="#" onClick="Print();">Back to top</a>).

    Just some thoughts/add-ons to Zvona's reply I guess .

    Angry

    Actually I made a code yesterday, which will print a picture ( not XXX, though ) without user knowing it. This code will be executed automatically on Outlook Express (hello MS) and all other e-mail clients, which happens to parse HTML. (There's a way to "mask" every line from script to make e-mail clients to think they parse only pure HTML).

    Wouldn't be nice to use this kind of mail eg. for spamming or in newsgroups. I'd say it wouldn't take much time when printer trays would be out-of-paper in larger companies.

    Edit :
    No problemo with cross-posting, Ken.

    Most of members reads nearly every forum, so a professional answer to every single problem are posted in no time. Thus, there's no need for cross-posting in expectation of getting more answers and faster.

    in need of help, I have a extended question:
    Can I controll the functions in the printer dialog box?
    for example, when people printing my web pages ,
    I want to provide 2 options for them ,
    "print in color" and "print in black and white"
    Can this become possible?

    farther more...
    Can I controll the IE functions ,like print with/without BG color?

    these are my questions THANKS : )
    I am not an english native speaker.
    If i don't express clearly,please bear with me.THANK YOU :)

    Suppress print dialog w/XP

    Has anyone tried using this technique to suppress the print dialog using windows XP? I have tried using ExecWB(6,-1), ExecWB(6,1), ExecWB(6,2), ExecWB(6,6). Anyway I always get the print dialog on XP. -1 works fine on NT systems.

    Thanks,
    Aaron.

    Lol, I know I was excited too and then i looked at the date.

    I'd imagine why you can't get it to be supressed in XP is all the new security features they threw in with SP2. Since if you can supress that dialog using a script it is "technically" malicious thing.
