Was this topic ever responded to? I've been searching for three days for some solution to being able to print PDFs through AIR/Flex. The PDFs are generated elsewhere, simply listed in a datagrid and previewed through HTML container, but I need to print them as documents, not as containers, screenshots, or renderings.
Can this be done using LiveCycle? BlazeDS? Some other method?
I would appreciate any response.
You can interact air-html-pdf sending a message to acrobat to print the document.
Search in the docs of flex the example to interact air with pdf.
Exists a bug (the adobe team never admit or resolved...) in the OSX version of AIR that cause a security warning on every post message...
Thank you for the quick response.
Does Adobe provide some other technology that will aid this process? I don't even need to open the PDF, just point to it and print it.
There must be a better way.
sorry but I don't known...
You can create a pdf with the embedded code that interact with air. the pdf open the request document, print it, and then close.
Thank you again.
Looks like a dead end. I may actually have to turn to Visual Studio for this project.
All the best,
Printing from Flex/Flash/Air is a bit of an Achilles heel. You can find on the flexcoders/flashcoders forums plenty of discussion about printing.
