View Full Version : Print Detail View Page Only
01-18-2009, 09:33 PM
How could I get a print button to display the detail view (like the default table view) to allow printing.
I find print preview useless for me as what I need is a formatted page.

I am trying to set up a print of detail view only. I have placed the script that you list and it prints the whole page which is ok but I really would like the whole detail view and not the table as well. Anyone got around this yet?

Create a filter (http://www.websitedatabases.com/filters.html)...
I do not want the table view to print - just the detail view - creating a filter leaves the table view at the top - help please!

Why not create another table view file that contains all the fileds you want to print, search the record and then print the record. You can search a unique piece of information from each record. Record id field or whatever then print it...

Hi, I know what you're talking about, you wish to print the record specifically and not the table veiw above it. (Esp., if you entered more than 10 records to display)
What I have done is replaced the print button with code:
< a href="newpage.php?recordID=NameOfPrimaryField" > Click Here to Print </a>
On the new page I then just copy and paste the code for the table view only; removing the code for the form elements and making it read only.
But in the header you must so a sql select
$printRec = "SELECT * FROM table WHERE primaryFieldName = $_REQUEST['$primaryFieldName']";
$recPrint = mysql_select($printRec);
While -blah blah blah...
There is no real way to make the program do this; it does not have the aiblity; however with a little hand coding and copy and paste you can build your own print preview. Just remember to put the results in a table that does not exceed 615 pixels - this way it won't go past the margins.
