What is printdiv?

Printdiv will copy the content of the specified div into a popup window that will then open a print dialog box to print a "printer friendly version" of the content. After the print job is sent to the printer the popup window will automatically close.


Example for printdiv:

[[printdiv? &divID=`test` &linkText=`link`]]
<div id="test">test data</div>

You can also specify the width and height of the popup:

[[printdiv? &divID=`test` &linkText=`link` &width=`200` &height=`300`]]
<div id="test">test data</div>

See the snippet properties for more options.
