I thought I’d post some code for ppl who want to setup multiple doc printing with a click of a button. I’m testing this right now with the process payroll tool. I hope it’s useful to ppl who like to play around with code a bit.
The code uses some custom header and footer functionality I was working on. I’m sure it could be modified to work with the new header/footer features that are being added soon. I’ll have to look at it when I get the chance.
Disclaimer: Most of this code was hacked together in a rush and most definitely has bugs. Please don’t test on a production server.
- Add a button to a doctype
- Create custom js to be executed by the button. Example shown below.
- Add a Python method that creates a dict of all doc names to be printed.
The custom js basically joins all the names into one and calls a custom function that gets the html for each doc and joins it together with page breaks. Comments in the code show where the code should go for this example.
I should point out the at the moment it can only print multiple docs of the same doctype.
Edit: Made some changes and trying to make it compatible with the new pdf print features. Still WIP
