I have created a text/html report. How can I set up printing of standalone report instead of the whole application? When pressing Ctrl+P the whole front-end gets printed.
@koki can you share your solution?
We had a different issue with printing from ASAP web application. We wanted to print report (created in crystal reports) directly, when user clicks on action button. So we created a Sequential workflow with task ServiceMethodCallTask -> service ReportService -> method PrintReport. This task has several parameters. One issue was with the Printername parameter. There should be a link to a network printer queue like \ServerName\PrinterQueueName. You should specify permission for that queue for the user, who is running ASAP application pool in IIS. Second issue was with the printer driver - we found out, that it is not working with some printer drivers types. So you can gat a situation, that PCS driver is not working and PostScript driver is OK for given printer.
Hope, this can help you.
Thank you. But I need print HTML report. I´ve heard, that you solve printing from html too?
We are using Crystal Reports for printing reports, but I think you can do it with html reports the same way. You choose only different report in the workflow task parameter.
@tvavrda Maybe bad idea: can I open the report in a new browser window - something like target = “_blank”?
@Kit4it Opening a report in a separate browser tab is also possible – you need to set the report’s property OpenMethod =
As for printing from the HTML report you can add the following snippet to your XSLT > HTML template:
Thans to all, I have chosen JS for this time and it does work.
