Printing

How to print an alternate view of your page by adam0101
Posted: 22 Mar 05 (Edited 17 Oct 07)

To print a completely different document, add this to your <HEAD> tag:

CODE

<link rel="alternate" media="print" href="printversion.doc">
The alternate document doesn't have to be the same file type. It can be HTML, a Word document, or something else.

To print parts of a document, add this to your <HEAD> tag:

CODE

<style type="text/css">
@media print{
  .hideOnPrint{ display:none }
}
</style>
Then add anything to the class that you want hidden when printing:

CODE

<div class="hideOnPrint">
  This will show on the screen, but will not be printed.
</div>

To print only user-selected sections, include the style sheet from above with this:

CODE

<div class="hideOnPrint">
  <input
    type="checkbox"
    onclick="this.parentNode.className=this.checked?'':'hideOnPrint';"
    class="hideOnPrint">
      This will only print when my checkbox is checked.
</div>
<div class="hideOnPrint">
  <input
    type="checkbox"
    onclick="this.parentNode.className=this.checked?'':'hideOnPrint';"
    class="hideOnPrint">
      This will only print when my checkbox is checked.
</div>
