cold fusion printing
I need a script, function, anything that will do the following:
upon a button being pushed it makes a server call generating some data to be printed. It will then generate a form (hidden and completely unseen by the user), prints it and returns to its normal state. The real problem is I need it to print client-side rather than server-side. Any ideas would be much appreciated!!!

It's a very long shot but maybe you could open a socket to the client's machine and send the data directly to the printer, but then i wouldn't know where to start. You'd also have to worry about things like OS and etc.
Hope this helps,
