    Adobe... PrintDataGrid needs previousPage()

    Ansury Level 3
      It's difficult to provide the ability to go back a page when showing the user a print preview. It's assumed functionality in every print preview interface.

      Come on Adobe, we need better printing support for Flash/Flex in general. The OS should be able to handle stuff like which pages to print, and print orientation too. Very generic, basic functionality. Why are we still doing this in Flex? The Silverlight punks are gonna catch up at this rate. :P

          Also: since technically when we print multiple pages by queuing them up in separate print jobs (as the Flex printing example in the docs), doesn't that mean if other people print stuff while your Flex print jobs are running, it'll end up in between your pages?

          That really sucks. Better print support is needed if Adobe wants businesses to use Flex extensively. ^_^ And I don't even want to think about the performance hit (if any) you take printing lots of pages like that...

            So we gonna get this in Flex 4 or what?  Or just some kind of enhanced printing maybe?  Would be kindof a big deal... who cares about tinkering with stupid "states", just get the Flash team to help get printing working (better).
