You may want to consider converting the InfoPath form to PDF as part of an automated workflow (or manual action) and send that to the browser for printing.

Have a look at this blog post that I wrote on the topic, it requires the use of a third party tool that I worked on as well.

Additional InfoPath based posts on this topic can be found here.

ITs not about workflow.I am just publishing the infopath form to the document library and it is there in xml format.I would like to print them with a click with out previewing it on screen.Directly the print dialogue should appear?Please suggest me in this way? providing code is appreciated? –  Surendra J Feb 24 '11 at 11:12
    
Don't be scared off by 'workflow', it is just the first step to quickly convert it to PDF. Alternatively you could create a hyperlink to quickly download a PDF version. It is still up to the user to then click the print button, see blog.muhimbi.com/2010/09/…. –  Muhimbi Feb 24 '11 at 15:10
    
@SurendraJ: Think of the 'workflow' like a macro, with options to feed it steroids. The workflow solution can even print them, package them up and email it to you with a bow on top. –  surfasb Oct 12 '11 at 15:16

Hello @LoonRanger! Welcome to SuperUser. It'll be cool if you can elaborate a bit of the contents in the attached link instead of just answering with a link :) –  Jin Oct 12 '11 at 15:34
