Flash's support for printing via the ActionScript print() commands remains a seldom-used, often-overlooked set of features Flash offers. This is really only useful when printing out your frames in story-board style for presentation purposes, but in order to do that you'll need to know how to adjust your page setup before printing.

Re: How to Print PDF files from flash

The secret to providing print interfaces in Flash lies in using off-screen movie clips and copying the portions of the interface to be printed to these off-screen clips. What's most compelling however, is that Flash can print content that is not visible to the user and that is a different size than the current picture.The advantages of handling printing in this manner, as we will see, is that the Flash developer maintains much more control over what is printed and how it is printed.

Re: How to Print PDF files from flash

Flash Player supports two primary methods of printing: the less precise option of right-clicking the Player and choosing the Print command, and the laser-beam?accurate method of using scripted buttons and the print action. For that you need to include Printjob class in your program. The PrintJob class lets you create content and print it to one or more pages. This class lets you render content that is visible, dynamic or off-screen to the user, prompt users with a single Print dialog box, and print an unscaled document with proportions that map to the proportions of the content. This capability is especially useful for rendering and printing dynamic content, such as database content and dynamic text.

Use the PrintJob() constructor to create a print job.

Download the zip file containing all the necessary project files in ZIP format (300k) here or HQX format (316k) here. Unzip the files and open Printables_start.fla. Additionally, with properties populated by PrintJob.start(), your document can read your user's printer settings, such as page height, width, and image orientation, and you can configure your document to format, dynamically, Flash content that is appropriate for the printer settings. The user layout properties populated by PrintJob.start() are read-only and cannot be changed by Flash Player.
