Print button - javascript

Sep 14, 2012

Hi, I would like to add a button that would allow the user to print the page. It seems like the easiest way would be to add a trigger to a button to execute javascript.  Unfortunately, I know nothing of javascript.  Can someone help me out with what need to goes into that script box?

Thank you!!

I don't know whether this assist others in this thread, but I came up with an alternate solution. It's a bit more involved on the Javascript side. I create an entire new HTML page using Javascript that you can brand and form anyway you like, then use the browser controls to print. It is more involved, and you would probably need a good HTML lay-out person to get your branding/layout correct, but it works in all browsers and evidently is not even cached, just placed in temp memory. Here's the link:

This thread comes close to my issue. I need to print the window but it has a scroll bar. The content changes within the scroll bar based on choices user make for 3 different questions, and variables place the answers in the window. Is there a way to use the java script idea to print all of the content within the scrollbar?

"To the question about not printing the "print me" button, you might try adding a trigger to hide the print button before calling the JavaScript to print the page. "

Haha, that made me laugh, it's so simple. Just tried it out, it actually works. Thank you! The order of the triggers is essential though, as described.

Sorry old thread but this so ingeniously simple I had to leave my kudos.
