Nope, but you could use CSS media print to hide all of the content. Search google.

Alvin,
Why do you want to disable printing? This seems unfriendly to the user.

And even if you can make it harder to print, it is still possible. They can copy/paste your page to Word and print it there.

Alvin,
A user can print anything they can see. For example, they could take print screens.

All you can do is make it harder as Eric's solution suggests.
