3.0 beta 2

Grid header borders are printed a second time in the wrong place.

When I print my grid (see below for example) with IE9, a "ghost image" of the header is produced, that is, the borders of the header are printed a second time to the right of the table.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Print table</title>
<style>
#myGrid {width:700px}
#myGrid .aw-column-0 {width: 150px; }
#myGrid .aw-column-1 {width: 150px; }
#myGrid .aw-column-2 {width: 100px; }
#myGrid .aw-column-3 {width: 100px; }
#myGrid .aw-column-4 {width: 100px;}
#myGrid .aw-column-5 {width: 60px; }
</style>
<link href="aw.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script src="aw.js"></script>
</head>
<body>

<script type="text/javascript">
var cellData = [["Fritz Muster","Baarerstrasse 25","6300 Zug","fritz@muster.ch","CHE-533.105.841","Aktiv"],

["Annebäbeli Fuess","Marktgasse 66","3027 Bern","","","Aktiv"]];
var headerText = ["Name","Strasse / Nr.","PLZ / Ort","E-Mail","UID","Status"];

var obj = new AW.UI.Grid;
obj.setId("myGrid");
obj.setCellData(cellData);
obj.setHeaderText(headerText);
obj.setRowCount(5);
obj.setColumnCount(6);
document.write(obj);
</script>

Cannot reproduce this. Do you see this in print preview (or on paper only)?

It happens only on paper (or with a PDF printer), not in preview mode.
Did you use the exact example above, in standard mode? It seems to happen when the sum of the column widths exceed the grid width. Although in this case, the sum should actually be smaller, but IE9 standard mode doesn't set the widths correctly.

In standard mode you should reduce the column widths by 4px when you specify them via css.

I can reproduce the issue with XPS Document Writer driver. Looks like a weird IE9 bug.

Here is the fix/workaround -

@media print {
    .aw-ms9 .aw-grid-header .aw-item-box {
        display: inline-block;
        position: static;
        width: 100%;
    }
}


Add this at the end of aw.css or somewhere in your stylesheet.

The lines are now gone for most tables. For some strange reason, they remain in those tables where the sum of the column width exactliy matches the table with. I can't reproduce it with the stripped-down example, so I blame it on the quriky CSS-hacks in our application. Nevertheless, I was able to solve it with the following CSS:

.aw-ms9 .aw-column-space .aw-item-box {
border: none;
}

The Grid still doesn't print properly. When I add borders for the cells:

.aw-grid-cell {
border: 1px solid threedlightshadow;
}

and increase the number of rows until a vertical scroll bar appears, I get extra lines outside the grid at the bottom.

ok, here is the fix for the cell borders -

@media print {

    .aw-ms9 .aw-grid-cell {
        display: inline-block!important;
        position: static!important;
        float: none!important;
    }

    .aw-ms9 .aw-grid-header .aw-item-box {
        display: inline-block;
        position: static;
        width: 100%;
    }
}
