    I am setting up a page that will display a list of .pdf files stored in the database. I would like to have a button on the list page for each document that will allow the user to print the .pdf without having to open it. Is this possible? If so, can someone guide me through this?

    Unfortunately this isn't possible - PDF's aren't web content and require a third party application/plugin for interpreting the content for viewing as well as printing. Without having the PDF file loaded in some way, you wouldn't be able to print it. A possible work around would be to load the PDF file in a hidden iframe and call the print functionality via JavaScript, however I don't know how cross-browser compatibility would be.
