Flash-Based Print Management (Batched Printing)
I'm having no luck finding anything to do with management of print jobs using flash so I'm hoping to find a suggestion here.
To clarify: I am not wanting to print something FROM a flash file or script (as in, I don't want to print a flash display or images contained in a flash file), but rather I want to print off several items one after another (in rapid succession) from AJAX-driven HTML page content without getting "printer not available" errors when the printer is waiting for me to finalize my print dialog box.
The overall situation is a report batch that I am running. I generate, via AJAX, about 50 or so reports into my page. When the reports are all done I print them to PDF individually. My basic approach was to hide all results boxes. I would then loop through the results boxes sequentially and unhide/print/rehide each one in order. When the loop is completed all results boxes are unhidden again and the page is restored. This had been working fine for over a year up until I recently upgraded to FF7.
My google searching is fruitless so far... I keep finding solutions for users wanting to print from flash-based sites, which is NOT what I am after. So, to make a long post longer, does anyone know of a script available for this type of thing (or even anything close to it)?
