I've got an application that uses the Internet Explorer browser. Inside the browser I'm hosting the Acrobat Viewer. I need to be able to be notified when the user prints the current document. Unfortunately, it looks like Acrobat doesn't expose a standard COM event interface. From what I've read, it looks like I might be able to do this from a plug-in, but I'm not a C++ programmer, so the code I've seen only makes a little sense to me. Definitely not enough to make anything that would work (at least, not without a ton of time).
Is this the only way I can be notified of a print action? If so, are there any books or references available that have a thorough walk-through of writing something like this (even if they don't address is this specifically)?
I downloaded the Automation sample from here, but if I can avoid having to try to customize it (ie. I can download something that already does this ;-) ), I'd like to.
