Print from asp.net

Print from asp.net

I have a issue while printing with an asp.net application I'm developing. I'm trying to print a 4x4 barcode label using an aspx form. the problem I'm having is, IE will not save the printer setting of my barcode printer without it being set to the default printer. is there a way I can create a vb application and make it a user control and launch that from the browser ? I'm thinking that will let me control the printer settings better. Any help or thoughts on this would be appreciated.


RE: Print from asp.net

As far as I know, you can run an exe, however, it will run on the server, not on the client. So, while you will see the app on your local dev machine, you will not see it once it is deployed.

RE: Print from asp.net

okay.... would you happen to have any other suggestions ? I'm trying to print to a datamax label printer. I have setup custom sizes within the printer/page setup for the datamax. the funny part is chrome will read those settings correctly when changing the printer to the datamax. IE will not, it still tries to take the default printer settings.

Sorry, I don't have any suggestions. I never had to do what you are doing
