Posted on 2008-04-22 21:55:21 by Steve Kershaw

Hi,

I have a directory full of a number of .PDF files that I need to

Is there any simple way to do this?
Using PdfReader purhaps?

Thanks in advance.

As this is an ASP.NET newsgroup, are you trying to print these documents via
a web application i.e. through a web browser...?

I'm sorry. It's an ASP.NET web application.

Thanks

You're not going to be able to persuade a web application to control a
printer automatically for security reasons - all modern web browsers are
designed specifically to prevent this...

Your best bet would be to make the PDF documents available as hyperlinks.
This would allow the user to display the documents individually and print
them as required...

I'm sorry, there are over 300 .PDF documents stored on a remote
server. Displaying them indivitually and printing them is completely
out of the question! Is there anyway to print them on the server (not
client-web browser) side?

There's no need to apologise...

Yes, but not natively as PDF support isn't built into the .NET Framework.
However, there are many 3rd-party add-ins which you can use:

Alternatively, if this is a one-off exercise and you have networked or even
direct access to the server in question, maybe bespoke software is not the
most cost-effective solution...? Have you considered maybe just getting a
temp in and printing the documents manually? 300 documents isn't that
many...

Thanks Mark for your solution. I'll imediately look into it.
I do have direct access to the server in question.

By the way, thats 300 documents per week! While it would help the
unemployement rate to hire a temp to print the 300 documents, I would
rather just give my user a PRINT button that prints everything in the
server directory.

Thanks again. As always you have been very helpful!

OK. In that case, and since you have direct access to the server in
question, I would strongly suggest that ASP.NET is not the right platform
for this...

Instead, I would recommend a WinForms app so that the printing exercise does
not put unnecessary strain on the web application...

It's going to be hard to print document from server to clients printer.
Although it's possible.
1st step: You need to register printer on a server. Google "print from
Windows service" to see how to do it.
2nd step: Adobe Arobat support "DDE automation" or simple command string. So
something like
AcroRd32.exe /t "C:\test.pdf" "\\servername\printername" "AdobePS Tektronix
Phaser 840" "123.45.678.910"
will work

Visit this link http://support.adobe.com/devsup/devsup.nsf/docs/52080.htm

------------------------------------------------------------ -----------------------

How about merging all 300 pdfs into 1 big PDF file? Then you can open up it
in browser and have user to click "Print" button only once.
Then you do not need to mess with the printers/adobe....
Look for ITextSharp - free C# library to work with PDF.



George.
