Print options for AEM Mobile App article content

What are the possible print options to print either article/collection content from a AEM Mobile App? Are there any custom Cordova plug-ins to achieve this?

Your best bet is to build a javascript "window.print();" command into your HTML article template.

There are a few Cordova plugins out there for print commands, but they all require that you add header files to the app. In this case it is often to add a button at the chrome level. AEM Mobile apps do not support this, as only Cordova extensions that can be called at the article level are allowed.

Hi Ivan,

Thank you for explaining the options. I will add a button/link in to the HTML article template that calls the  javascript code "window.print();" upon the click of that button/link.

Regards,

Vishnu
