how do I: Send text string to printer on webpage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Just saying, im a complete rookie! So it is understandable if you think im stupid... ;)

    I've used a template (MVC - ASP.NET Web application with .NET Framework) to generate a webpage.

    In the Home-folder, I've altered one of the "website pages" (Printer.cshtml) to this:

                    <input type='text' name='print_x' />
                    <input type='text' name='print_y' />
                    <input type='text' name='print_z' />
                <input type='submit' value='Print' OnClick='button' />

    with the Controller (in the Controllers-folder):

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Mvc;
    // Controls what is showed using Views
    namespace WebApplication1.Controllers
        public class HomeController : Controller
            public ActionResult Index()
                         return View();
            public ActionResult About()
                ViewBag.Message = "Your application description page."; // 
                return View();
            public ActionResult Printer()
                ViewBag.Message = "Your printer page.";
                return View();

    Now to my question:

    How do I, when someone on the webpage press the "Print" buttom, send print_x, print_y and print_z to a printer?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is Visual C# forum. As your issue is related to Web please ask your question into ASP.Net forum for getting quick response. I am moving your thread to off topic.
