    We are using the RedEditor control to print letters from our ASP.NET application.  We have a client side event on a Print button as follows:
    function radButtonPrint_ClientClicked() {
        var editor = $find('radEditor');"Print");

    When the user clicks the Print button, the print dialog appears and we can select the desired printer and print the letter (the HTML contents of the RadEditor control).

    Is there a way to get the return codes from the Print Dialog via this "fire" command?  We're trying to handle the case where the user has clicked Print to open the Print Dialog and then clicked Cancel on the dialog so that ultimately we can take further action (redirect appropriately, etc)

    RadEditor uses the browser's Print() and execCommand("Print") methods to print the content inside its editable iframe content area. These methods call the browser's Print dialog, which does not offer the ability to attach events to its OK and Cancel buttons and execute custom code.
