I have a strange bug, I have a page with a asp:calendar control, I do plenty of
e.Cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Orange
to put colors in the days of the calendar, I end up with a pretty colorfull calendar. Then I do a window.print(); with javascript and it prints blank calendars... all the colors dissapear on the printing, I simply don't understand the reason of this behavior but I need to print that calendar.

Help please ?

This is down to the printing in the browser. In IE, there is an option under Printing in the advanced options to enable background colour printing, but it's off by default.

Well, I got an easy and concrete answer that works well, so I will consider myself kind of happy with it. Now I have the whole background also printing wich I don't truly wish, but at the very least the calendars print, so I give you the points. thanks

Well I wished to print the calendars with all the colors, now it works. The background is heavy and deranges the print through, but I found something about CSS @media print that I can use to maybe take off the background. At the very least now it's functional and I can print those calendars, so is just a look matter for the background. But your answer was 100% acurate.

Hi all,

I'm running into the same issue that Drakecoldwinter was having, but enabling Print background colors and images isn't fixing the issue.  Given that this thread is from 2006, I was wondering if different settings needed to be tweaked using IE 8?  If anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much.

EDIT:
Just in case someone comes along with a simlar problem.  In IE 8, there is another setting that needs to be checked.  See this kb article for details:
