Introduction

The CSS media type “print” allows authors to specify a stylesheet that is only used when printing. This can be very useful and allows for neatly styled printouts that hide non-essential parts of the page and only contain the main content. It’s a great concept.

To achive this, create a separate stylesheet say, print.css, and put your classes there in the css file. Apply the classes to the fields you want to customise while printing and then add the following in your page's head section.

 <link rel="Stylesheet" href="../Style/print.css" media="print" type="text/css" />

Note: This will only apply when someone is printing the page.

Give it a try!!

About the Author

ASP.NET Community
United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
