I have used Spry Accordion to make a rather complex form work
very well ..
but now I have a problem. The client wants to be able to
print out the form
and I'm having trouble getting it to work. I have put a copy
where it can
be viewed but you can see when you do a print preview, only
tab that is open is displayed.
Ideally, what I would like is for each tab to go to the next
page and print
them all. Any thoughts?
Nancy and I have been talking off-line about this, but I
thought I'd answer here for the benefit of others.
If you want to print with all panels open, you have to
disable any of the styles on the Accordion that hide overflow, use
display:none, or set the heights. Something like this works for me
when I print the Accordion sample page we have here:

Definitely. When I get this all sorted, I had thought about
CSS Advisor. I'm not there yet. I have a massive form with
panels and while the rules stated above have gotten most of
it to print,
it's still dropping out content from the two panels in the
middle. Not sure
why .. when I have it all fixed, I'll report back.

Would this information regarding printing of the accordion
also apply to the tabbed panels widget? I need the hidden panels to

Maybe someone can help me with an Accordion printing problem.

page 2) after that it is all blank.

I am also experiencing problems trying to print nested tables
inside a SpryHTMLPanel across pages. As IE 6.0 and 7.0 and, IE 5.2
on the MAC, do not recognize the CSS declaration
'page-break-inside: avoid', I am left at the mercy of the browser
to print what it can, but again wouldn't it be nice if Microsoft
actually utilized, fully, the standards of CSS? Everything prints,
its just that it gets cut off on the bottom of the page (HTMLPanel)
and then continues at the top where it broke, but then places a
break a little further down. It has nothing to do with page margins
as the area where it places the break is after my page margin and a
half line of content inside the HTML panel. I have tried placing
overflow:visible and height:auto, on my TR, TD, and TH and on the
HTMLPanel itself to no avail.
