logging what is printed

Is there a way using javascript(or jsf)to test to see if something has actually been printed??

I'm already using a different print stylesheet (which works awesome..so much better than making print versions of pages)

<LINK href="/theme/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css" title="default" media="screen">

<LINK href="/theme/print.css" title="print" rel="stylesheet"

I call the window.print() method and that works great too. The issue isn't how to get it to print but rather to confirm that the print actually happened.

window.print() only opens the print dialog-people can choose to cancel. My need is one of logging what was actually printed.

Any ideas would be helpful...

perhaps using the browser to confirm that the print button on the dialog box was clicked or testing the media type in the link for css.

my web application is JSF with javascript.


The courage to learn anything...that's what I look for.

Nothing you can do with JavaScript to see if the page was actually printed.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
