I hope you can help --

I've been having a difficult time with this one.  I need to be able to open a new window (to show a 'printer-friendly' version of the page) and I keep running into problems.

And the code on the aspx.cs page:

private void btnPrint_Click(object sender, System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs e)
{
string openPrintPage = "";                        
openPrintPage = "<script language='javascript'>";
   
openPrintPage += "window.open('Assess-ReportView.aspx?OrgReviewID=" + AssessmentID + "&Section=PrintView');";

openPrintPage += "</script>";

btnPrint.Attributes.Add("onClick", openPrintPage);
}

When ran, it doesn't open to a new page.  It appears to do an autopostback and "erase" the data on-screen without ever opening a new window.

Thanks in advance!

This might be a quick fix, but you could create that on a new page, then redirect it to that page.

When I did this for a project, I had to post the javascript before the aspx was rendered.

Hi thunderchicken,

Hmmm, good suggestions, but with the app in testing, I know we're trying not to have to create new pages or redirect to newly created pages.

Well, you really don't have to create a new page.  You can just flag the same page and only output that javascript.

Something along the lines of this  (say your aspx page is called default.aspx)

With your pageInit...


if Request.QueryString["print"] == "true"
{
   loadPage()
}



private void loadPage()
{
string openPrintPage = "";                        
openPrintPage = "<script language='javascript'>";
   
openPrintPage += "window.open('Assess-ReportView.aspx?OrgReviewID=" + Request.QueryString["id"] + "&Section=PrintView');";

openPrintPage += "</script>";

btnPrint.Attributes.Add("onClick", openPrintPage);
}

private void btnPrint_Click(object sender, System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs e)
{
   Response.Redirect("default.aspx?print=true&id=" + AssessmentID)'
   Response.End();
}



It's been a while since I've done C# stuff, so sorry about the syntax

Quick question:

For placing code within the pageInt, is this what you meant?

******************************************

#region Web Form Designer generated code
override protected void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
    //
    // CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web Form Designer.
    //
      InitializeComponent();
      base.OnInit(e);

      //to print page -- sample code
      if (Request.QueryString["print"] == "true")
      {
      loadPage();
      }
}
*******************************

Juuuusstt making sure I have everything in the right place.

Yea, whatever function runs whenever the page is loaded first.

Hello again.

When I incorporated the code, some headers began to show up (their disabled depending on user level), so I may have to mess with this one some more.....

You could do a

Response.Write("Please wait...");
Response.Redirect("default.aspx?print=true&id=" + AssessmentID)'
   Response.End();
