Hi folk. I'm new here and its been a very long time since I built any websites. I want to create a button that will rpint off a membership form. The form is currently a pdf file. All I want it to do is click on the button and have it print the said form. How do I do this? Im using a demo of Dreamweaver CS4 if thats any help.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Antony, welcome to DreamweaverClub and the forum.

I dont think what you are asking is possible. You could maybe do it with some sort of ActiveX control but I'm sure it would be difficult and would have browser compatibility issues.

Why do you need to print the file from the link? The user may wish to just view the file or may have their printer switched off.

I would just open the file and let the user choose to print it if they wish.

Thanks Paul. As I said its been a long time since I did any of this so I wasnt sure of the best way of going about it.
