    printing checked items from a form in acrobat reader

      Hi,

      I have a pdf form (really html) that is generated from asp.net 3.5 and opens in acrobat reader. The form contains, among other things, miscellaneous items with checkboxes in this format:



      some text



      The form displays with a button "Print Only Selected Items" that looks like this:



      I need to be able to send the printer all the items that have been checked when the user clicks this button. The form has other things besides the items with checkboxes--those need to print unconditionally.

      I am thinking to fire off a javascript function (when the user clicks this button) that will gather all the checkboxes that are unchecked and hide those span or div elements. Send the resulting document to the printer. The original document can not be altered.

      Thank you in advance for your help.
