Introduction

In this tutorial we will create an example on how to print div data of a web page using JavaScript. You can also select data from a paragraph or table by just selecting the appropriate id value of the paragraph or table.

In this example we will put some static data into a div area inside an HTML table. Then we will put a print icon and clicking on the print icon will take you to the print page. Now you can select appropriate printer to print the page or even you can print to PDF file and save it.

Prerequisites

HTML, JavaScript

Print Page

The below JavaScript function selects data from div area for a given id on the web page and opens a print window.

function printReceipt(id) {
	var prtContent = document.getElementById(id);
	var WinPrint = window.open('', '', 'left=0,top=0,width=800,height=900,toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,status=0');
	WinPrint.document.write(prtContent.innerHTML);
	WinPrint.document.close();
	WinPrint.focus();
	WinPrint.print();
	WinPrint.close();
}

Print Content

The content which we want to be printed on a paper or file is given below:

<div id="print-area">
	<table border="1" style="width: 100%; margin : auto;">
		<tr>
			<th colspan="4" style="text-align: center; font-size:22px;">Vehicle Parking receipt</th>
