    Adobe Reader 9.4.6: how to skip print dialog

    Anton Kalinkin


      in our company we implement a freestanding self-services kiosk project.

      The kiosk uses a browser, which links with internal application server, which contains the required information.

      There's also an option to print some documents via Adobe ActiveX PlugIn. Explored some versions of Adobe Reader, we considered that the most appropriate is version 9.4.6. We strongly needed to set Adobe Reader so that the only clickable button in upper toolbar is “Print” button, and also side navigation panel is hidden (because pdf file opens in the frame within the kiosk system page). We've succeeded with this issue.

      But now we experience one more problem. When the user clicks the "Print" button, the print dialog appears. Is it possible to choose default printing settings and start printing avoiding print dialog by some standard options?

      Or maybe you can provide us an event, which initiates Adobe print dialog, so that we can use it to fire the OK within java script.


      Best regards
