Printing asp pages

Posted on 2007-03-28

Hello
I have a report in .asp from Dreamweaver
There is a repeat behaviour which shows 10 records, the next 10 appear on the next page and so on

Is there a way that I can get all of the records to print on their relative pages from a print command?

Thanks
John

Not quite sure what you're asking here.  Do you mean get 10 records printed per page?

If so, you can do this in CSS.  I presume the results appear in a table?  If so, you can add this CSS style to wherever you need the page break to occur.  This example uses a table

<table style="page-break-before: always;">

Post your code if you need more help here.

You need to find the line of code on that page that says Repeat1_numRows = 10 and change the number to -1.  That will list every record on one page.

To clarify a little (I hope)  it is an asp page with a repeat behaviours within a table and yes a ctrl P will print what ever is showing on the page.
The repeating  lines will print,  but only the page that can be seen will print.

So if I have  more that 10 lines the remainder will appear on the next page and so will not print.
I wonder if thats clearer?
I tried this in the table
    <td><table style="page-break-before: always, width="740"  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">  but it did not seem to make any difference.

Thanks fuzzboxer:
If I set the repeat region to -1 it gives me all records that OK
However when the file prints the second (or third etc) page the second page will start halfway through a repeated line.
It would be good to get at least a complete repeated area and preferably the top of each page (a heading printed.
Maybe the following sketch will illustrate the idea
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Heading information                                                                               |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Reapeated region                                                                                    |
| line 1                                                                                                        |
| line 2                                                                                                        |
!end repeated region                                                                                 |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
If I use <table style="page-break-before: always;">
I get a blank page printed first

If you want the site header to be printed on each page, you are going to have to set up a CSS file for printing.

However, if you are talking about printing the table headers, then you could try setting up a nested repeat to print the table headers every 20 records or so.  Using this method will not print the headers at the top of each page, though.

I think it could if you used:

  <tr style="page-break-after: always;">

or whatever DW uses to re-display the headers every 20 lines.

I tested this out in Dreamweaver and it works like you want it to.  Increase or decrease the mod number (30, in this case) to adjust the number of records you get before it prints the header.


<table>
<%
While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT Recordset1.EOF))
%>
<%
RecordCounter = RecordCounter + 1
If RecordCounter Mod 30 = 1 Then%>
<tr style="page-break-before: always;">
<th>Heading 1</th>
<th>Heading 2</th>
</tr>
<%End If%>
<tr>
<td><%=(Recordset1.Fields.Item("Column1").Value)%></td>
<td><%=(Recordset1.Fields.Item("Column2").Value)%></td>
</tr>
<%
Repeat1__index=Repeat1__index+1
Repeat1__numRows=Repeat1__numRows-1
Recordset1.MoveNext()
Wend
%>
</table>

Thanks fuzzboxer:
That is great, one small item, at the moment it prints out a blank page as the first page. Can I prevent this?

Okay, I just tested it in IE6 and I see what you mean.  It works fine in Firefox.

Here's a solution:

Put this code before the while loop:
<tr>
<th>Heading 1</th>
<th>Heading 2</th>
</tr>

Now change the mod to 30 = 29.

That should get rid of the blank page and still print your header on the first page.

Thanks so much.
