Printing chart shows up additional garbage


Recommended Posts


Im rendering my chart as an image and when i try to print it out using javascript im getting lots of additional garbage coming into the html that im supposed to get from the element.It looks like elements of the toolbar (i get the Load my chart icon and label, save my chart icon and label, restore defaults icon and label and the icons for all the galleries, and then som e colour palettes) Because my toolbar is disabled i cant understand why this is happening.

My javascript looks like so:

var prtContent1 = document.getElementById(Chart1);

var WinPrint = window.open('','','left=0,top=0,width=0,height=0,toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,status=0,resizable=0,menubar=0,');






Any ideas ?

I don't understand this code. What are you trying to do?

What is Chart1, shouldn't it be 'Chart1'? But it it is, prtContent1.innerHTML, will be nothing if the chart is an Image tag.

It seems that what you are getting is the page without the stylesheets.

If what you are trying to do is print the chart, the follwoing script will do it:

function SFX_PrintImage (imgId)


var chartImage = document.getElementById('Chart1');var imgSrc = chartImage.src;


var w = window.open ('', '_blank',

'menubar=0,location=0,status=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=0,titlebar=0,status=0,toolbar=0,linkbar=0,width=1,height=1');var html = '<HEAD><TITLE>Chart</TITLE></HEAD><HTML><BODY ONLOAD="if (window.print) { setTimeout(\'window.close()\', 1); window.print(); }">';

html +=

'<IMG SRC="' + imgSrc + '">';html += '<\/BODY><\/HTML>';
