    can i print form collapse fields?

    Asked by advancemoves on March 06, 2012 at 09:08 AM

    I added a print icon to my form but when I print it, it does not include fields compleyed but hidden under form collapse sections.  Any way to do this so that all sections print?

    Hi Advancemoves,

    If your form is designed to be accomplished "online" and be "printed", I suggest not to use the form collapse element. We all know that once we print a page, it will print "as is" what shows on our screen.

    Since individual contents could not be shown at same time inside the "form collapse element", this may not give you a complete page print of your form.

    Hope this helps.

    I suggest you use plain format in designing your form (just listing items to be filled), as actually as indicated abive , the collapse model is meant to hid some dat either from being printed or open viewing.

    I think this is a good question.

    thanks.  the ability to hide sections of the form in display mode, is more important that being to print so I think I will drop the print button.  Not all sections of the form will be relevant to all users so it helps keep the form compact and allow users to jump to their relevant fields.

    They get it all on email repsonder so print was belt and braces nice to have, not essential, thanks for your responses.
