I am trying to print existing pdfs from a database.    I am working mainly in asp.net expecting the print to happen on the server.  This works for other types of files and I also use Telerik reporting which automatically prints reports on the server.   The problem is what do I use to open an existing pdf and then send it to a printer without user interface.

    I tried this

Dim mViewer As New Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadPdfViewer
            Using ms As New Memorystream(bytes)
                mViewer.LoadDocument(ms)
            End Using
            mViewer.LoadElementTree()
        
            Dim document As New Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadPrintDocument()
            Dim printerSettings As New System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings()
            printerSettings.PrinterName = "Brother MFC-J5625DW Printer1"
            document.PrinterSettings = printerSettings
            document.AssociatedObject = mViewer

            document.Print()

Hello Al,

The current implementation of DocumentProcessing library does not provide a print functionality. We have a feature request logged in our Feedback Portal, where you can vote to increase the priority and subscribe to be notified for any status updates - DocumentProcessing: Printing. As a workaround, you could use the proposed approach in the item.

Hope this helps.
