We need a NewForm.aspx to be printable - preferably by adding a Print button to the form.  I dont see a Form Action for printing - any suggestions on how to accomplish this?

Thanks for your time.

You could edit the NewForm.aspx page (in SharePoint Designer) and add a JavaScript print button.  This button would simply execute window.print(), here are some samples of using the JS function: http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/newtech2.shtml

Hi TEEDA,

I have tried this solution window.print(); on button click in javascript. The problem is it is printing the form with content in Chrome, and in IE it is printing blank page with header and footer.

The form is designed in infopath.

Please give me your thoughts on this.
