Hi All,

A new window is displayed from a website(javascript:launchwin()) which contains some text and JPEG image below the text. Am trying to print this window. I use the window.print() option in the onClick prperty of the Print button, as shown in the code below.

The image is not printed in a few attempts, what could be the reason for the same??? Is there any other option for printing the contents of the window.

Thanks in advance,

Only thing I can think is you are showing the image as a background. The image will not print if it is a background since it is a setting. If that is not the case then I am not sure.

Here is code for the image part in the BODY tag of the HTML:

Can you please suggest now?

Given that HTML, it should print. Go through the browser options. (I don't recall the name of the option in IE, but there is one for printing images.)
