Hello-  I'm simply trying to print a GridView that is in my ASP.NET Page.  I am using the function below which works well in this environment.  After I click print or cancel the grid on the page disappears.  My question is how can I print and once the print window closes be right back on the same page with the grid and the buttons?  Do I have to reload the grid?  I am new to the .net environment.  Thanks.

function CallPrint( strid )
{
var prtContent = document.getElementById( strid );
// var strOldOne=prtContent.innerHTML;
var WinPrint = window.open('', '', 'left=0,top=0,width=1000,height=1000,status=0');
WinPrint.document.write( prtContent.innerHTML );
WinPrint.document.close();
WinPrint.focus();
WinPrint.print();
WinPrint.print();
WinPrint.close();
// prtContent.innerHTML=strOldOne;
}

Most likely you are using a button control that has [runat=server] embedded in the markup.  If this is true, then you are doing a postback to the server.  The gridview disappearing is the result of that post back.

Either you will need to reload the grid or use a client-side version of your script without issuing a postback.

it_saige:  So if I use an html button and add the javascript function to it this will resolve my problem?

You could remove runat=server from the asp.net element.  So long as you do not need to do a postback this is perfectly valid.

Thanks for the assistance.  Sometimes it can be something simple but if your new to the technology you need a push in the right direction.  That is exactly what I got.
