Well, you need to display the query result html in a popup windows, then the
user can print that.
To do so, you need a bit of javascript, like this:

function popupResult() {
 var win = window.open('','win1','width=800,height=600,menubar');
 // copy the result html
 var result = xGetElementById('tables_result');
 // if you have your result in another element, simply put the id of the 
query result container element
 if (result) {
   // past result into the popup window
   win.document.body.innerHTML = result.innerHTML;

and add a link in the table.tpl to call that function.

if you want some styling, you can create an empty page in /htdocs/ with the
css file included in the header and use
window.open('path_to_the_empty_html_file.html','win1', ...

Hi Oliver

That means only that the information can be printed easily. Pdf format is
not needed. I imagine something like the sbb/cff (siwss trains) timetable on
the internet. Maybe it is just a browser function call?...

Regards Christoph

Hi Christoph

print as in "export in a pdf" or "some nicely formated html in a
popup-or-whatever that can be easily printed" ?
