How to print page

using intel xdk 2807.

Building android apk 

using bootstrap framework

os windows 10

I have tried using Google Cloud Print and jquery printThis.js with no success yet.

I have design page with images on it and a page that has a dynamically generated table. Both pages show in application. How do I print the pages or is it even possible to print the pages.

Note: Both pages print from the emulator. Neither print once I build apk.

What plugin are you using to print?  Any chance you could provide a complete xdk project we could look at to try to figure out what's happening?

Thanks!

This is one of the more popular print plugins - https://github.com/katzer/cordova-plugin-printer

Its for iOS and Android and users have had good luck working with it.

Used https://github.com/katzer/cordova-plugin-printer and finally got it to working partially.

The initial problem seems to be tablets I was using. 

First tablet is RCA 10 Viking Pro running android 5.0 - print does not work crashes when line --

cordova.plugins.printer.print(page, 'Document.html', function () { alert('printing finished or canceled') });

-- is called.

Second Tablet is nextbook 8 inch running android 5.0 crashes exact same line of code.

Third phablet Galaxy Note 4 running android 5.0.1 app works printing works.

Forth Galaxy S4 running android 5.0.1 app works printing works.

Trying to determine why not apk not working on tablets

Interesting. Have you added the device plugin? You will need that. It might be a coincidence but your non-updated devices seem to be causing the issue. 

Could you zip your project and send me via IM? I can test it on my devices.

I would recommend try building with Android crosswalk instead of Android. This might solve the issue with other tablets.

Printing now working - have not checked every possibility yet.

Here is what I found so far.

The following lines were added by program:

       <!--   <a style="text-decoration:none; " onclick="window.print(); ">
                    <span class="uib_shim "></span>
                </a> -->
            </div>
            <!-- <a style="text-decoration:none; " onclick="window.print(); ">
            </a> -->

        </div>
        <!-- <a style="text-decoration:none; " onclick="window.print(); ">
        </a> -->

 Once I commented out the links that were calling window.print() function print started working.

I had a onclick event for the entire page: <div class="upage vertical-col left hidden" id="stndpg" onclick="myprint('stndpg')">

I do not know if I did something that caused all the onclick events to be added or not.

Thanks for all the responses.

I can not explain why to Samsung worked yet other two devices did not until I commented out lines..
