Button code needed

One of my projects requires a section that can be logged into and once there, some buttons that allow some files (most likely to be word docs) to be printed. I know how to do the login screen bit but not the print button?

I would like to know how to put coding onto a button that will print a certain document? I dont know if this has to be placed on the CD in a folder, or whther it can be imported?

I don't really know how to use Xtras so try and avoid that approach if possible? unless you don't mind explaining them to me ^_^

Also if all of that is too confusing perhaps someone could tell me how to make the word document download from a URL to their desktop?

Thanks as always

RE: Button code needed

The easiest way is to use BuddyAPI Xtra "baPrintFile" command. I know Buddy API is an Xtra but it's very easy to use (yet so powerful), I strongly recommend you familiarize with it!

Thanks for the advice kenneth, as always your saving the day ^_^

Do you know much about making games in director? i have a project coming up and i need to make a section of a game, im thinking of either

"Deal or No Deal" (if your from US i don't think you'll know what this is)


an RPG style game like final fantasy...im thinking with health point variables etc and shops....

Could you give me any input in terms of which would be best suited to my abilities. Perhaps gaming sites or director resources, books etc?

Man sorry i always post on here, im sure you have better things to do than answer my Q's ^_^

Thanks kenneth
