View Full Version : [AS2] MovieClip to Print and Save as PDF

10-20-2009, 02:49 PM
I have Flash file that will reside on a CD or thumb drive.
I have a requirement to add a 'Print' and 'Save' button.
The 'Print' button should only print the content in the movie clip and the 'Save' should prompt the user to save a file (PDF would be ideal) to their computer.

Since the file is on a CD or thumb drive I don't have access to server side scripts etc...

Any ideas if this is possible?
If so, any ideas how to do it?

Thanks in advance.

I dont think Flash alone can print/save to a PDF file. You might need to use a Third Party wrapper program that might have such an option... Some of the SWF/EXE wrapper apps out there might also offer this. Such as: Zinc, SWF Studio, chameleonflash, mProjector, FlashJester, etc, etc...

Keep us posted on what you end up doing.

I don't know if this will be helpful. Concider trying FPDF. Have a google search for more details.

...Concider trying FPDF.

But doesn't that require PHP (a server side script) ?
