  • direct printing of a pdf to a user's default windows printer

    It would be helpful to be able to add a button (or something) to NAB that allows a user to directly print a pdf to their default window's printer (without having to click on "print" from adobe reader)

    In the next update, you can tell NAB if the backend RPG program is returning a document to either download/print or open it. If you tell NAB to print the document then the users print dialog will be displayed.

    ** However, if the user is running your NAB application in Microsoft IE or Edge it will behave the same as it does today asking the user if they want to open or save the document. As always the limitations of MS browsers.

          Is this available with “If Document Returned” on behaviors > Call RPG Program/URL? or how is it available

            If a document is returned from the called program you can set it to either open, download or attempt to print which will attempt to bring up the print dialog in the browser.
