Printing from the web browser on the user machine (client machine)

Top  Previous  Next

Raw Data Printer enables you to print your raw data on the user (client) machine when the user hits your ASP page(s) located on your web site in his / her web browser (Internet Explorer). This requires the component to be downloaded and installed on the client machine and run on that machine.

In order to automatically download and install the component on the user machine, you have to set a reference to the Raw Data Printer CAB file (Internet Distribution Package) in your ASP page as shown below.

<Object ID="Printer"  

The version number above depends on the current version number of the component you currently have on your web server.

You can download the Internet Distribution Package
of Raw Data Printer from our web site. This package contains the appropriate CAB file and an HTML page of the latest version of the product. When the HTML page is accessed from the client web browser, it will automatically download and install the component on the client machine.

Note that the security settings of Internet Explorer on the client machine may prevent the component from being downloaded and installed. Therefore, you need to inform the user to appropriately adjust these security settings in order for IE to be able to download, install and execute the component properly. Alternatively, your web site can be added to the Trusted Sites zone of Internet Explorer on the client machine, where the security settings are low in this zone.

Raw Data Printer is marked as "safe for initialization" and "safe for scripting".
