How to print and/or save a PDF?
I am experimenting with WPdfImage class.
What I actually need is to have the PDF document to go to the client printing menu and to remain on the server local storage.
Accordingly to the example, I get a "download" event from the browser.
But, is there a way to have it sent to the browser's media="print"?
And what about having it as a local resource for storage on the server as a file?

I don't know of a method that would immediately open the print dialog for a pdf file. A quick google search didn't yield much promissing results neither.What you can do in Wt is:
- save the pdf in some location on the server, and use a WFileResource (in combination with WAnchor) to make it available in one particular session
- control if the pdf should be displayed in the browser, or in a helper application (WResource::setDispositionType)
- suggest the filename for the file on the client (WResource::suggestFilename).
- open the file in a new tab (WAnchor::setTarget)

I have found this but I am still far from a solution.
