Can you guys help me with this, I think this should be easy and I think I am close.  I want to print just a div, the div's ID is not exactly FormControl but has FormControl in it.  Firebug doesnt like the line with the print statement in it.  It say "TypeError: $(...).print is not a function ".

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>

$infopathdiv = $('div[id$="FormControl"]');

$(document).ready( function() {
  $("#printbutton").click(function(){$("#infopathdiv").print();});
});
</script>

<input id="printbutton" type="button" value="Print this page"/>

Printing is not part of core jQuery, though some people have made plugins to do what you want.  Take a look at http://www.bennadel.com/blog/1591-ask-ben-print-part-of-a-web-page-with-jquery.htm, or google "jquery print".

<input type="button" onclick="printDiv('printableArea')" value="Print This Notice" />

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
function printDiv(divName) {


     //window.alert(printablearea);

     //var printContents = document.getElementById(divName).innerHTML;

     var originalContents = document.body.innerHTML;

     var printablearea = $('div[id*="WebPartWPQ2"]').html();

     $('body').html(printablearea);

     window.print();

     document.body.innerHTML = originalContents;
}
</script>
