Printing issue with SharePoint and internet explorer
Versions of IE tested (7, 8 ) : Both create an extra page after the report.
Firefox : does not create this extra page
The tr tag is assigned a class called “runOnBrowserDisplayStyle”
This causes IE to create a page break while printing, hence creating a new page.
Removing the class from the masterpage solves this issue.
The only affect this has is that the web page has a cell at the bottom of the page which is styled as per the sharepoint theme (default would be light blue in colour)
With this change the printout is set to one page without the blue bar being printed
A page in Enterprise portal is defined by 2 objects in Ax 2009
1. Web menu item URL
Path AOT –> Web –> Web Menu Items –> URLs
2. Page definition
Path AOT –> Web –> Static Files –> Page definitions
Every time a Page is changed (added / removed user controls / web parts) the page definition needs to be updated.
To do this locate the URL of the web page in the AOT
and right click –> Import
After importing the file, look at the page definition for the corresponding URL. It will not have an object in the current working Layer.
Deploying specific EP pages:
Right click on the page definition –> deploy page
This deploys the page and a message is shown
This deployment method is not supported for 64 bit machines, and some of the 64 bit machine I have worked with give issues and may not deploy. The only way to deploy it is by using the AxUpdatePortal.exe
NOTE: AxUpdatePortal.exe will redeploy the entire enterprise portal
