Hi guys ,
I have following page to display the printer friendly page of a current page using javascript

the following is the javascript

The problem is that after displaying the printer frriendly page , the focus is shifting back to main window from print friendly window.

So when window.print happens , it is printing the main window instead of printing the printer friendly window.

Can somebody please help me with this .

perfection is making best effort within constraints of space ,time and resources

Put the print operation in the sub-page.

P.S. There are better ways to create printer-friendly pages. Look up CSS print media.
