    printing from Flash 5


    Does anyone know if it's possible to print an external movie from Flash 5's ActionScript?
    For example print a seperate movie like a registration form, from within a currently running movie like an interface/animation.

    Thanks in advance.

    I dont have a printer installed, but try put this in the head-tags:

    <script language="JavaScript">
    function MakePrint() {
    if(document.all){
    print();
    }else{
    window.print();
    }
    }
    </script>


    And then give the button an action:

    on (release) {
    getURL ("javascript:MakePrint('printtest.html')");
    }

    where printtest.html has your print-contents.

    But try the macomedia forums (newsgroup):
