  • Hi Asif Jujara, 

    Thank you for posting here.

    Based on your description, your issue is more related to ASP.NET. Therefore, it will be more appropriate to ask your question in ASP.NET Forums.

    The C# forum is for C# related question, we discuss and ask the C# programming language, IDE, libraries, samples and tools here.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Xingyu Zhao

  • The short answer is "no".  Javascript allows you to trigger a print, but you can't find out anything about the printer.  The browsers hide all of that, and for good reason.
