Okay I have coupons on my web-site and I wanted to track how many times people have clicked on the print button, I am assuming that this would be a PHP topic so I posting this thread,

Thanks in advance,

Assuming you are using PHP then yes you are in the right place. :)

How does your print buttin currently work....or in other words what happens right now when people click on the button?

To do this you can simply write a number to a file.

Okay when you click the print button it prints another page but is there any way to simply count how many? and how.

Ok I kind of figured that you print a page when the print button is clicked. What I was looking for is what happens....ie do you open a new window? ...do open the print dialog box? or what when the button is clicked?

in any case here, in order to keep track of the clicks, a request will hve to be sent to the server so you will either have to reload the current page or request a new page that contains the code to open the file and update the count.
