Print while in Play Mode

With these inexpensive point-and-shoots (for example the SD500), can you programmatically click the "Print" button while the dial is in one of the camera REC modes, or do you have to put it in PLAY mode with the MODE switch first? I'm wanting to print to a PictBridge compatible printer.

I don't have one, so I can't test this yet. I'd like a model that doesn't need to switch, since you can't automate the MODE switch from what I understand. And I'm trying to combine two functions with the same script. Shoot, then print.

Thanks,

-Mike

I know next to nothing about that printing stuff, but you can switch between rec and play from scripts in CHDK nowadays. I'm not sure but there might be some models that still have problems with that, though.
