    printWithDialog

      Question about ADOBE READER 8. We are using the PrintWithDialog method of the ADOBE READER VIEWER Object from an HTML page. In the dialog window shown, how can we have the radio button set to ALL PAGES?

      The behavior we have is: the radio button is set to Pages from 1 to 1. The user has to change it to ALL PAGES every time before clicking the OK button.

      Thanks.

      Here is the code:

      In the HTML page:
      OBJECT id=AcroReader style='LEFT: 10px; TOP: 40px'
      classid='clsid:CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000'width=1 height=1

      In the Jscript code:

      AcroReader.printWithDialog();

          Hi,

          I am a developer and have come accross this bug. My customers use this function many many times every day and it extrmely annoying for them to have to click the "All" radio button *every time* they want to print a PDF document. It's very easy to forget and just click "Print" and then end up wondering why only 1 page of a 25 page document was sent to the printer.

          I am astounded that Adobe has not fixed this bug - it has been present for as long as I have worked with the product (version 6 if I remember). It must be so easy to fix.

          Does anyone know if there is a workaround?

          Regards,

          Owen Wattley,
