Print 11 by 17 using Datatables Plugin with Background Cell Colors

Recommended Posts

I have a Datatables using HTML (DOM) sourced data. I have 30 columns in my table. I have a print button, button when I print about 6 columns do not fit. Also, some cells have background colors. How can I customize this Print function so that I can print 11 by 17 preserving the background colors of the cells?

My script for Datatables:



$(document).ready(function() {
$('#myTable').DataTable( {
"order": [[0, "asc"]],

"paging": false,
"scrollCollapse": true,

"columnDefs": [{
"targets": [0],
"visible": false,
"searchable": false

dom: 'Bfrtip',

extend: 'print',
text: 'Print',


} );
} );

...preserving the background colors of the cells?


As far as I'm aware, whether a page prints with background colors is determined by the user's browser. In Chrome, for example, there is a "Background Graphics" checkbox in the print dialog under "More Settings".
