Default Print ListView item template table with gridlines


I have a ListView that has a table in its item template.

I would like to print it together with the table grid-lines.

I have tried several methods provided online and the grid-lines do not print at all.

Any help with sample code would be highly appreciated.

I tried this code from a certain forum.

protected void btnPrint_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();

HtmlTextWriter hw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);


string gridHTML = sw.ToString().Replace("\"","'")

.Replace(System.Environment.NewLine, "");

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

sb.Append("<script type = 'text/javascript'>");

sb.Append("window.onload = new function(){");

sb.Append("var printWin = window.open('', '', 'left=0");

sb.Append(",top=0,width=1000,height=600,status=0') ;");









ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "GridPrint", sb.ToString());

I am not sure I follow your question. if you are wanting your web application to have print functionality and base on the code you presented it seems as if you are printing an image of a gridview. this would already be built into a browser with the browser print button. no coding needed.

However if you are talking about the end-user being able to download a file version of your gridview that is printable, then you have to decide what format you want available. The easiest format of gridview to produce is a csv (comma separated value) file. When a user clicks your download link then you can do something like below to allow them to download a file.

Response.Buffer = true;
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=file.csv");
Response.Charset = "UTF-8";
Response.ContentType = "application/text";
where CsvUtil converts the GridView backing data ( an array of records) to a single csv string.
