by default Adobe Acrobat does not print any annotation or notes. So you need to enable this in preferences.
Go to:
Edit --> Preferences --> Commenting
and enable option "Print notes and pop-ups"

(here is a screen shot: )

You can't send to printer some page from PDF while it is being generated.
But you may do it after the PDF is generated and saved to disk.
Use your programming language reference to know how to send a document to a printer.

Yes you right,

i need code to print pdf file from memory, if this code exist.

yet i use this working code :
i must edit pdf file then save pdf to disk and after save i can print my file, this is not the best but its good alternative for me

Thank You

Option Explicit
Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" _
(ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, _
ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, _
ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Dim result As Long
result = ShellExecute(0&, "print", "C:UsersMarekDesktop1-L-0006_1test.pdf", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus)

Well, it depends on the programming language you use.

The basic concept is: create device context based on the printer you need (CreateDC function), draw to that context (PDF Creator Pilot's method DrawPageToDC)

Here is the sample for C++ how to create DC: =vs.85).aspx

Here is a reference for DrawPageToDC: DFDocument4/DrawPageToDC.html
