Can a Print Command be Captured Within a Script?

I'm wondering if a Print Command can be captured from within a Filemaker script.


My aim is to populate a date field with the current date (i.e. capture the report's print date ) from within a report-generating script only if the user actually sends the file to the printer.  Aborting the print job would also abort population of the date field.


I realize user input to the print dialog, once on-screen, and related system-level print actions are not occurring from within FileMaker but I'm hoping there is a way for FileMaker to see and capture the consummation of the the print job so that it may be used by Filemaker's scripting logic.
