I tried several stacks but nothing really works for me or the browsers student use.
i want to let students print a section of a webpage that’s not shown on the page itself by pressing a button.
any ideas how I can do this with html/ java or something else?
Have you tried PrintBox https://stacks4stacks.com/printbox/ ?
These notes from the page may be of interest:
yes I tried that one and it is pretty good, I think it’s the best there is but… it doesn’t work in chrome for me. I pull some data from a database and in chrome it’s not showing with paintbox
Perhaps @willwood Will can advise you as to whether there is a solution or workaround for your problem.
I use Print This 2 from Doobox and I have had no problem on the usual Mac desktop browsers and iOS. The printer icons are not hidden on any of my devices and do work - although if the theme has a background or backdrop colour (even when not visible) this will print in iOS devices. However, I’m not sure Doobox still sell it so maybe there were difficulties. I’m about to use it quite heavily on a new site so will test this more thoroughly.
Will answered instantly, so that was great support. the problem is that the stack and my theme do not like each other.
Print this works but is not flexible about the print button. the style is not consistent with the rest of my site. I would like a button and hide the content. both not possible. I ask support for a couple of weeks ago, still no answer… and indeed on the site the stack is not showing anymore… no support… I believe
