You can get/set some parameters on Mac OS X using the WebView.GetPrintParameter/WebView.SetPrintParameter functions.

Not supported for WebKit 2.x (FileMaker 16 Mac). We tried it, but as of macOS 10.12.4 we only get white pages. Works in FileMaker 16, when using a Web Viewer created using WebView.Create.

To disable footer and header in print on Windows, please run Internet Explorer. In File menu go to Page Setup and in that dialog set all the popup menus for header/footer content to empty.

Version 10.3 adds iOS support to show print dialog.
