    Default Print a PDF in Tabbed UI to printer?

    Ok this one is going to be real silly I have a button on a grid in a tabbed ui when you click on the report it comes up just fine. However a ctl+P to print prints the whole tab including what is in the back round!

    Where is the ability to make it just print the report?
    Do I have to open in a new Pane?
    Lost been trying to find this and can not come up with anything?
    What am I missing?
    :confused:

    A couple of ways that I can think of is for a quick print you could use something like snag-it to capture the part of the screen that you want to print or you could add a button that would generate the report in a PDT and then print that. I can't wait until the HTML reporting comes available.

    Actually if you use target=window, window type=dropdown

    it will work in all browsers but chrome!

    I must have missed something in the translation. Could you explain that with a little more detail?

    SEE Chrome does not have the menu bar for PDF. And the settings I before in the post would only work. Any other setting you would get the way it shows in chrome.

    But those setting work in the other browsers this has to be a bug? NO? why would it only work for a dropdown?

    Peter what do you use to make those nice circles and arrows on your picture?

    Nicholas are you using the pdf viewer that comes with chrome? If so its crap go into the options in chrome and disable it.

    under the hood
    content settings
    disable individual plugins
    disable chrome pdf viewer and enable adobe.

    Hope this is the reason.

    easy fix on Google Chrome....

    type in -----> about:plugins

    you will get a google set up screen.
    disable the google reader, enable the adobe acrobat, then you will enjoy the printing capabiilty.

    Had to enable Adobe thanks so that make it compatible on all browsers for THAT setting.
    Now back to original why only a drop down will work not a popup?
