    CFDocument Printing Status

      Can you monitor the progress of the printing job being performed by CFDocument? I ask because some of the dynamic reports our clients request can be over 100 pages which take a long time to render. Meanwhile, the client is looking at a browser "spinning its wheels" seemingly doing nothing.

      We've used ActivePDF in the past and that software allows you to query the server with process ID to get the status of the print job: Spooling, Rendering, Loading, etc. In the past we used it to create a "bridge" page so the user can see something is going on and keep them from hitting the Refresh button or closing the window.

      Can you do the same thing in CFMX7? Perhaps some undocumented scope variables?
