Print button on NewForm to print another version of the form

Thanks to the previous reply, we are happily printing eNewForm.aspx uisng a Print button. New question came up: can we program the Print button on NewForm to print a "cleaned up" version of the form - that is, another version of the form for the same list item?

Many thanks for your time.

You could add a JavaScript function that loads a custom CSS stylesheet and then calls window.print().  Here is an example of loading CSS through a JavaScript function: http://www.javascriptkit.com/javatutors/loadjavascriptcss.shtml

In the CSS you could make all the "clean up" changes you need to make.  To ensure that your styles override the default SharePoint styles, be sure to include !important after each style line, for ex:

body
{
width: 100% !important;
}

I hadn't thought of using CSS - the major thing we want to hide on the "clean" version is the Print button itself. So I'd have a Print button which calls the javascript to load a custom CSS stylesheet (to hide the Print button) and then calls window.print().

Have I got that right?

Thanks for your time,

Yes, you could use CSS to hide the button during the function, or you could even use JQuery and hide the button using JQuery.
