ASP.NET Printing css without print dialog and modal confirmation for successful print
This might have to be broken down a bit but what i want to do:
I have: - A List of (sort of) greeting cards. Each will be printed to a particular size (A4 folded down the longer edge)
I want to: Generate a list of these cards in HTML with css that puts the tags in their place which would be rotated 90°.
Ideally i'd want to print the list of cards without ever seeing their HTML. And without Print Dialog, but would want a modal confirmation dialog after printing where user input confirms they printed correctly.
So my questions are:
Assuming divs for each card, do i just to rotate in the css and then add pagebreaks after each card to define a new page for printing? I'm really having trouble with the css, do you recommend any good resources for this?
Do I need to specify page size or if the particular size paper is in the printer will the printer print proportionally?
How can I print without browser's print dialog This is answered
How can I catch when the printing job is finished?
Would I be better off with using some PDF library?

Of course you can generate PDF but this requires user to print this PDF manully (clicking print button).
