    Yes and No.


    Inject the following CSS code on your form exactly as it is:

    @media print {
       * { display: none; }

    This is how the form will look on a browser print preview (or a direct print command):


    This code can be edited out on the browser - and there is nothing much else to do when the user knows how to manipulate web pages with their browser.

    But it will be pretty effective for the most part.

    Let us know if that helps.
