Hi Jing Zhang,

If you have configured save as PDF drive in your browser you can use Application.print(); script.

You can see it in chrome browser as it comes with that option. In print screen you can select save as PDF in chrome.

It can be used as work around for now

Thanks,

Hi Jing Zhang,

The Application.print(); script is used to call predefined print function in our browser.

It is now removed from application but the API is still can be used.

In chrome you can select save as pdf option as shown using change button.

Similarly, you can do it on other browsers but you need to install some drivers for that.

Thanks,

Hi Jing Zhang,

Yes it is to be used in design studio.

Is the print(); is stroked out in scripting?

is that you are mentioning as an error?

you can ignore that.

Hi Jing,

what is the image extension? .png, .jpeg, ...?

I had issues with .jpeg image, when I used PDF.exportApplicationScreen().

Hi Jing,

I can not export jpg image with PDF.exportApplicationScreen(). So I used icon, instead of image. I created a font that contain my image and I followed this blog to add custom font for the icon component.

I suggest to use PDF.exportPanelScreen(panelArray);.

Can you share how you are exporting to PDF? The script associated with it? I also recommend reviewing SAP Note https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2227751/E 2227751 - Considerations when Working with Export to PDF in Design Studio 1.6

Tammy,I'm sorry to reply so late.

I just use a click event of the image,and I use this script:

PDF.exportApplicationScreen();

I was in UI5 m model,and the image,I was use a url to match the picture that I save in service.

I've review the note you said,why design studio 1.6 can't export GEOMAP,because it is use url ?

Thanks.

Hi Jing,

Unfortunately we do not support the exporting of Geo maps in Design Studio 1.6. A geo map adds extra complexity to our PDF exporting solution which we couldn't add to the 1.6 release.

This is a popular requirement on our road map for future development in the Design Studio team.

Thanks,
