Ext.ux.PrinterFriendly, 0.1 (Initial Release)

I'm happy to announce the first release of my (first) Ext JS extension.
Here are the facts:

Name
Ext.ux.PrinterFriendly

Version
0.1 (Initial Release)

Summary
Easily build printer friendly layouts and grids for your Ext JS pages.

Features

  • Builds a normal html table (Ext.ux.PrinterGridPanel) based on your data store and column model, which saves a lot of cpu power and memory when printing large data sets. Moreover it shows all rows. (Remember, you can't use ext's pagination or scrolling on paper. ;-))

  • Remembers the state of your grid, such as that hidden columns stay hidden in printer friendly view, keep their column order and keep the row sorting. (This is not really a feature of this extension, it just uses the fabulous Ext.state.Manager, but I think it's important to mention, since this was an important requirement for me.)

  • Completely Javascript-driven, no need for extra server-side coding for printer friendly pages

  • Enables easy debugging of your printer-friendly layout (just add ?format=printerfriendly to your page url to see printer friendly view)

  • Enables adding your custom stylesheet for your printer-friendly format
