View Full Version : Gift : Javascript disappearing on printing button

Obviously interesting to delete a printing button on a page than will be printed... Check this on my resume at

<!-- Disappears on printing --->
<input type="submit" value="Print" onClick="this.parentNode.removeChild(this); window.print(); ">

Can you explain that a little more? It's just that I think I know what it does but I'm not game to test it... or start printing.

To use on HTML page design. It's just a simple task. It deletes this print button from the page on printing. So the button won't be on the printed sheet of paper. You can test it on my resume on my site.

Is that clear enough? :)

Hey you can't blame me for not knowing what 'Imprimer' meant... nice trick!

Oh sorry. I won't blame you. I forgot I've typed it in french :) I hope this trick will be useful to you.
