How to finish a WebMAP migration

Recommended Posts

Let's start a thread here documenting the things that will have to be done after migrating a C# app to HTML with WebMAP. I'd like to see both issues identified as well as solutions and even code if possible. I'll start:

Printing: Suppose your Windows app performs a printing task, perhaps an invoice to be mailed or a shipping label.You might have used Microsoft Word as a formatting tool before you sent your file to the printer as well. In your browser, you won't have access either to a printer or to Word for formatting.

Solution: Create a PDF. Here's a web service from Adobe that will create a PDF from XML data.  Then you can pass a link to the PDF to the browser for downloading to the local machine for offline printing. If you don't want to use LiveCycle from Adobe, here's an article describing taking an HTML view and creating a PDF from it.
