App Studio: Print Button

Greetings - I would like to place a button, via DDX Brick or otherwise in an App Studio page that has the effect of printing the entire window.. so the same would happen if this button or link is clicked as if a user hit or Ctrl + P or Cmd + P.

Open to any suggestions on how to achieve this (I know we could just tell users to click the keyboard shortcut, but a button would be nice lol).

App Studio doesn't have 'Export to PDF' functionality (although I hear that might be in the works), so I'm trying to find a workaround in the meantime.

I tried to do this with JS in a DDX Brick, but get error in console "Ignored call to 'print()'. The document is sandboxed, and the 'allow-modals' keyword is not set." I saw this issue referenced in an older post, but didn't sound like there was a solution I could apply to this case.

Appreciate any ideas on what I could try here :)

Thanks!

George

    Because the AppStudio is sandboxed you won't be able to use a button to bring up the print dialog box. You can log an idea in the idea exchange to allow that functionality.
