Print Functionality of List Vew Webpart in SharePoint

Hello Friends

User wants to print the available listitems of a list from a ListViewWebpart in a page and they want to print only those records rather than entire page content (Left Navigation, breadcrumbs etc.) .

So we could not provide the "print" functionality from the browser so we have to include below javascript inside the Content Editor Webpat and now you have print functionality available for ListView webpart only.

Add a content editor webpart on same page where your ListViewWebpart resides.
Write this javascript in the content editor webpart.

<input onclick="javascript:void(PrintWebPart())" type="button" value="Print Page"/> <!-- copy and paste in to a content editor source editor web part --><script language="JavaScript">

<!-- Web Part/region to print -->
var WebPartElementID = "MSO_ContentTable";

//Function to print Web Part
function PrintWebPart()
 var bolWebPartFound = false;
 if (document.getElementById != null)
  //Create html to print in new window
  var PrintingHTML = '<HTML>\n<HEAD>\n';
  //Take data from Head Tag
  if (document.getElementsByTagName != null)
   var HeadData= document.getElementsByTagName("HEAD");
   if (HeadData.length > 0)
    PrintingHTML += HeadData[0].innerHTML;
  PrintingHTML += '\n</HEAD>\n<BODY>\n';
  var WebPartData = document.getElementById(WebPartElementID);
  if (WebPartData != null)
   PrintingHTML += WebPartData.innerHTML;
   bolWebPartFound = true;
   bolWebPartFound = false;
   alert ('Cannot Find Web Part');
 PrintingHTML += '\n</BODY>\n</HTML>';
 //Open new window to print
 if (bolWebPartFound)
  var PrintingWindow ="","PrintWebPart", "toolbar,width=800,height=600,scrollbars,resizable,menubar");;
  // Open Print Window

Now you all set for print the listitems of listviewwebpart in SharePoint Pae.

Associate an SharePoint Designer workflow with a specific task list

Hello All,

If we would like to associate a different SharePoint Task List to SharePoint Designer workflow from more than available Task Lists, there is not any direct way or user interface to do this.

The configuration for which task List is configured to SharePoint Designer Workflow is stored  inside the wfconfig.xml file. This is not an recommended way to do this.

If there are multiple task list available inside SharePoint site, SharePoint Designer Workflow picks up the first Task List.

So if we want to attach Task List of our own choice , we need to follow these steps.

1> Create a task list which lists first as Task List.

2> In SharePoint Designer, create a new workflow and compile it (click Finish in the Workflow Designer)

3> Now rename that task list from SharePoint User Interface.

That's it!!!You are all set with the SharePoint Designer 2007 Workflow with your desired Task List.
