Hi guys,

Is it possible to open a new popup/window and show custom html + css? We need to enable printing custom html/css.

So let's say I've got some html + css code and when the user clicks on a button a new window/popup opens displaying the page using this html + css. With that the user is able to use the print function (CTRL + P) to print the popup's view.

Thanks in Advance,

You could use a jface Dialog or PopupDialog which contains an org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser to show the html + css. Add a button or action to the dialog which calls Browser#evaluate with "window.print();" as script to execute on that browser instance.
It worked for me that way (to only print the iframe's content).

Hi Chris,

I basically do it in the same way as Sebastian suggested. I open a new popup Dialog (based on the org.eclipse.jface.dialogs.Dialog class), add a org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser widget, apply a layout on it so it fills the whole space of the dialog (and increases size automatically with it) and then add the HTML payload to it using the Browser#setText method.

String htmlWithCss = createHtmlContent()
Browser browser = new Browser(parent, SWT.NONE);

The Browser widget renders the HTML it gets via #setText in an iframe, so it can contain whatever HTML, CSS and JS and even refer to static resources by URL. So I basically generate a <html></html> page to display my stuff. You could then inline the CSS in the header section and add the HTML in the body section. Works pretty well.
