Hi everybody,

I need a help, I need some code that capture anything go to the printer from this device. For example, if application X printed sentence "Hello JavaRanch" on some document I want to know this sentence on my program. Is that possible?

Thank you.

not really a Java thing, although I have on occasion needed to install virtual postscript printers on to machines to perform unusual activities. Still not in Java though.
I agree. Here's the link:
