We have a project that has [navigation] menu windows docked to the North and West. We want to put a button on one of the nav windows that will print the main centered window as a pdf. Is this possible when the main window is not a report, and how would we reference a window other than the one the print button is on?
You can’t print the window as a PDF. However, you can print the window or save it as an image. Here is an example:
windowName = system.nav.getCurrentWindow()
rc = system.gui.getWindow(windowName).getRootContainer()
job = system.print.createPrintJob(rc)
job.showPageFormat = 0
job.orientation = system.print.LANDSCAPE
# window not opened
passHope this helps.
That worked! Thanks Travis.
May I know is there any changes after few years? Or Ignition still can’t print window as a PDF ?
In perspective it should work in a brower for sure, just ctrl+p
Tho it might not look exactly the same as the screen.
In both Vision and Perspective, locally printing to a PDF is a function of the local OS having a PDF print driver.
