    Just a quicky - printing question - not possible?

    Hi there, I don't think this is possible so it would be a surprise to me if it is!!!

    Is there any way of intervening when a user uses CTRL+P to print a page? By intervening, I mean No you can't print dammit!!!

    Not just hmmm, lets play with the page and make it look nice before printing the page... then return it to its previous state after

    Thanks for comments

    CSS @media print is your friend.
    You could just make everything display:none in print if you wanted to be evil. LOL

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
