Topic: Print form then clear it?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 55852

Here's what I am trying to do:

app."We reccommend saving your office travel forms here...",3);
var print_ans = app."Do you wish to print before the form is cleared?",2,2);
if (print_ans == 4) this.print(true);

But what happens is the last line is executed before the user gets a chance to hit the OK button on their print dialog box that is open. So all that prints is a blank form.

I even tried using ... this.print(false, 1, 1, true);
but then my printer activates like it is going to grab a piece of paper but nothing ever happens - it just winds down and stops, waiting for the next print job.

Is there anyway to not let the resetForm execute until the user has sent the form contents to the printer?
