Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/SoYouKnow/archive/2010/10/27/using-jquery-to-print-a-web-part.aspx Someone drank the jQuery Kool-Aid… Here’s a super quick and simple blog post that you may or may not find useful… as always I offer a money back guarantee… Let’s say you want to print out your SharePoint page but you don’t want the Search Box or anything outside the main content area to print, or maybe you just want one specific web part on the page to print; how would you do that?

When cell phones were still relatively new and there existed things called “Pay Phones”? Well.. that has absolutely nothing to do with this blog post. Sorry…   Not THAT kind of Hacker So… when it comes to writing code I can admit that I’m not a classically trained developer. My first computer was a Commodore SX-64 when I was about 11. Wow, I’m a geek. I would enter programs from the Code magazines and then change them around to see how Continue reading jQuery in SharePoint for Hackers
