Hi everyone,

 

I need your help once again. I have had this request now twice from customers and I am struggling to find a good solution, export to PDF has been discussed a few times in the community but all entries so far are no options for a cloud server hosted by Board (at least I think so).


My customers want to export a screen to PDF, there are several objects on the screen and they are using the HTML5 environment on a cloud server hosted by Board.

 

I had a quite nice process working with export screen to pdf in a procedure then I uploaded the pdf to a blob cube and they could just download it from the screen itself after running a short procedure. I quite liked that solution but sadly it does not work in the HTML5 environment because export screen is not supported yet.

 

I am sure others have come across a requirement like this and I hope you have found a solution.

Broadcasting or printing just the whole page in the web browser are no options for my clients.

 

Cheers,

Daniel
