Hi there,
Is there a way that I can get the list of printers that my user has configered for use from his desktop? I want the user to to choose a printer from a list of printers. When he selects one, I should be able to get the name of the printer in my javascript variable, so that, I can use that variable to pass as parameter to another url.
I can not use the print() window object, because it will not return me the name of the printer.
(I am using the IE6 on Windows 2000

There might be some sort of active-x control for IE, but I am not positive.
A search on google might point you in the right direction
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
