AngularPrint

An Angular module that allows users to selectively print elements, as well as provides optimizations for printing. By default, printing margins are minimized.

Installation

  • Make sure bower is installed;
  • Navigate to the root directory of your project and execute the comand:
$ bower install angular-print
  • Insert stylesheet and javascript file:
<!-- CSS -->
<link media="print" rel="stylesheet" href="public/angularPrint/angularPrint.css">

<!-- JS -->
<script src="public/angularPrint/angularPrint.js"></script>
  • Import module to your Angular app using the name "AngularPrint":
(function() {
  'use strict';
  
  angular.module('yourApp', ['AngularPrint', '...']);
})();

Using AngularPrint

printSection

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Makes element and its children visible for printing
<div>
    <div print-section>
      I'll print
      <p>Me, too!</p>
    </div>
    <div>I won't</div>
</div>

printOnly

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Makes element and its children only visible for printing
<div print-section>
    <div print-only>
      I'll print, but until then nobody wants me
      <p>Me, too!</p>
    </div>
    <div>Me, too! Except that people still want to look at me in the meantime...</div>
</div>

printHide

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Makes element invisible during printing, but it is replaced by blank space
<div print-section>
    <div print-hide>
      I won't print
      <p>Me, either</p>
    </div>
    <div>I'll print, but those bozos upstairs are still taking up space</div>
</div>

printRemove

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Makes element invisible during printing
<div print-section>
    <div print-remove>
      I won't print
      <p>Me, either</p>
    </div>
    <div>I'll print, and those bozos upstairs will finally stop making such a ruckus</div>
</div>

printIf

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Toggles print-visibility based on expression
<!--Pigs do not yet fly, so this div, despite having print-section, will not print-->
<div print-section print-if="pigsFly"></div>
<!--Sam IS the best, so this div will print, despite not having print-section-->
<div print-if="samIsTheBest"></div>

printBtn

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Adds onClick callback to element that will trigger printing
<button print-btn>Doesn't matter where you put me</button>
<span print-btn>I will make anything cause a print</span>
<p print-btn>to happen if you click me</p>

printLandscape

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Will cause printing to be landscape instead of portrait
<button print-landscape>Doesn't matter where you put me</button>
<span print-landscape>I will cause any print</span>
<p print-landscape>to be landscape</p>

printAvoidBreak

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description: Prevents page breaks on element
<button print-avoid-break>This element won't get split by page breaks</button>

printTable

  • Directive type: Attribute
  • Description:
    • Optimizes table for printing. This includes keeping 'td' cell content from being cut-off by page breaks.
    • Must be passed an array scope object representing the data presented by the table.
    • Column headers will persist between pages only if the <thead> and <tbody> tags are used correctly.

This example shows adjustments to an already-visible table in order to tailor it for printing

<table print-table="people">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <td print-remove>Unwanted field</td>
      <td>Name</td>
      <td>Address</td>
      <td>Phone</td>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr ng-repeat="person in people">
      <td print-remove>{{person.unwantedInfo}}</td>
      <td>{{person.name}}</td>
      <td>{{person.address}}</td>
      <td>{{person.phone}}</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>      

This example shows a table made to only be visible during printing

<table print-table="people" print-only>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <td>Name</td>
      <td>Address</td>
      <td>Phone</td>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr ng-repeat="person in people">
      <td>{{person.name}}</td>
      <td>{{person.address}}</td>
      <td>{{person.phone}}</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
