Hi

I have a report that provides tables of data and have set it to page break at the end of each table.

Works fine.

If I use the 'run' option in the birt-viewer I get the whole report in one web browser window, for easy scrolling.

However, if I try and print it from there I only the first page.

I am aware that I can print via PDF and that works ok but I have a user who prefers to see the whole report in one page and use his browser Print function.

Anyone know why I get this result?

Actually I have removed the page breaks but the report still seems to 'break' after each table and when printing via the method specified I still just get the first table.

Lee,

Can you add your own print button to the run fragment jsp or does it
have to be the browser print button?

I was using the "run" servlet mapping because I am new to all this and wasn't sure what I was doing. That happened to give me the output all on one page in the browser which is what my user wanted. But it doesn't seem to print properly.

However, I have just check the documentation again and tried the "preview" servlet mapping and that seems to look the same in the browser but does print correctly.

So maybe, "preview" is what I should be using.

Thanks

Lee
