  1. Ben, male. I've been programming for 8 or 9 years and only got into PHP about a year and a half ago.


    I'm more of a system programmer (VB, C, ASM, system specific languages like D2T's Morphee or MTS's VXin) at work, but about half of my job is running our internal lab website (data collection and reporting). I enjoy this stuff more.


    Oh, and I'm married, but she's not a programmer at all and I think I like it that way. I did go to college some very talented female programmers, one of which is a very good friend of mine.

  2. I did try it. I tried it on 2 major browsers (IE and Opera, both the latest releases), and guess what? It didn't do anything.


    And if you're seriously going to sit there and say that someone should use code that doesn't work in IE, I'm going to sit here and laugh at you. You and I might know better, but half the world still uses IE.

  3. Ooohh... lookie, a CSS2 attribute. How about we talk about something that works well AND degrades well, huh?


    ALWAYS consider the user when pointing someone to a relatively recent addition to the standard.


    EDIT: Might I also add that it will not force your printer to print in a landscape mode. You cannot control the user's printer settings through CSS.


    ALWAYS double check the desires of the OP and the functionality of your supposed answers before posting your arrogant [removed].

  4. Short answer, no. Long answer is that it is possible, but only in IE and they have to use a button you put on the page.... and it relies on ActiveX.




    I rely on the free version where I work and I can force everyone to use IE to print reports. It works great. I wouldn't push this off to the general public however, since it requires them to accept a software install and use your print buttons.


    I'd suggest either using PDF or trashing the idea altogether.

  5. This is hacking in its worst fashion, not php CORE hacking. What you're doing is illegal and does break at least 1 digital law. Stop what you're doing immediately.


    This forum is for those who are writing modules to extend PHP's abilities. What you're doing is more correctly known as "cracking"... malicious attacks on a computer's systems.
