Re: Printing PDF on the client default printer.

Thanks again but I'm afraid I'm not in the same case : I don't want to print
a pdf that already exists : I generate the pdf from xml source and xsl file
and want to send it directly to client's default printer instead of
displaying it (that works).
Do you have an idea ?
