Preventing Print to File

Post by artofsound » Sat Mar 01, 2008 7:25 am

We're considering using Print2flash as a technology on our website. One important feature we require is the ability to prevent users from printing our material "to file" such as a PDF file and other file formats. Users would only be allowed to print to a "real" printer. Does Print2flash support this capability either out of the box or possibly with some custom programming?

Thanks,

Ed

No, this is not possible because we doubt that there is any method for a Flash movie to distinguish between real and virtual printers. Actually, Flash printing architecture does not even allow learning the name of the printer to which the printing is done.
