Print Div Content with print preview using JavaScript on Asp.net
Click on image to enlarge
Introduction: In this article i am going to demonstrate how to print the content placed inside the HTML Div tag with print preview before actual printing using JavaScript in Asp.net.

Description: While working on project, it is very common requirement to print the page content. It becomes very easy using Javascript. All we need to put the content that we want to print in DIV tag and create a JavaScript function that takes the id of that DIV tag as parameter and do the required work for you.
Implementation: Let's create a sample website page (default.aspx). Below is the complete page's Html:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Print DIV Content using javaScript</title>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function PrintDivContent(divId) {
            var printContent = document.getElementById(divId);
            var WinPrint = window.open('', '', 'left=0,top=0,toolbar=0,sta­tus=0');
            WinPrint.document.write(printContent.innerHTML);
            WinPrint.document.close();
            WinPrint.focus();
            WinPrint.print();
        }
    </script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>   
    <div id="divToPrint">
    This is a sample content to print<br />
    This is a sample content to print<br />
    This is a sample content to print<br />
    This is a sample content to print
    </div>
    <br />   
    <div id="divNotToPrint">
    This is a sample content not to print<br />
    This is a sample content not to print<br />
    This is a sample content not to print<br />
    This is a sample content not to print
    </div>
    <br />   
    <asp:ImageButton ID="imgBtnPrint" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Print_button.png" OnClientClick="javascript:PrintDivContent('divToPrint');" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
  
Notice that there are two div tags in the above page. But suppose we want to print the content of the first Div only. Then just pass the Id of the first Div tag to the "PrintDivContent" javascript fucntion from the onClientClient event of ImageButton. I have used ImageButton and assigned the Print_button.png Image downloaded from internet in the ImageUrl attribute in the above example. You can search on internet for the any print button image and use that or you can use simple Button control.

Now over to you:
