Need to print data without going to the detail page

Msg#: 4350384 posted 2:59 pm on Aug 11, 2011 (gmt 0)


I have a webpage/search page that can summary of records depending on the users search. now the user wants to print all the records in detail without going into each record and printing them one by one.

Any suggestion how I can accomplish this?

The browser can only print what is on the page. The content might be hidden, but visible only when printed using a media="print" stylesheet, nevertheless it is already there.

So, the short answer is, if the user wants to print all the records in detail then you need a page that has all the records in detail already on it (possibly with a page break after each detail record)!?

Or... may be... load each detail record in turn into a frame and issue a window.print()? But the user is going to have to respond to each record in turn.

Hi akabir,
I would just upload a pdf with the needed data so they can either register to their drive or open it and print it right there.
I mean that's the only easy solution i can see right now.
Hope this helps you a bit.
