Printing InfoPath Forms

Print option is normally not available as an option on Ribbon in InfoPath templates. So if one wants an option to “Print” InfoPath form then they can use the following steps below. Before starting off the InfoPath should be published as a Content type and a Page with InfoPath form Web Part must be created.
  • Open the Display Form web part page (make sure to select the correct content types if you have more than one....). You can do this by clicking Form Web Parts > (Content Type if you have several) Display Form
  • Edit the InfoPath Form Web Part. Set the Chrome to include just the Title.
  • Add a Content Editor Web part to the page. Set it to Hidden.
  • Add the JS from below link in the HTML source of the Content Editor Web part.
  • Save the page.
You can now click the little icon (or you can modify the JS to insert a button to say 'Print Form') and the Print Preview of the Info Path web part gets opened, along with popup for setting printer options.
In the above JS script, the function “printWebPart” can be modified and replaced by the below script function

            if (tagid)

This will directly open up the popup for setting printer options without showing the Print Preview.
