Print the content of a Div | JavaScript/jQuery

Printing a whole web-page is an easy task because it is a feature that is provided by web-browsers . However, in some situations, you may need to provide a functionality to your users for printing only a segment ( Div content ) of a web-page rather than the whole web page.
var mywindow =; var content = document.getElementById(elem).innerHTML; mywindow.document.write(content); mywindow.print();
In the above code, when you click the button "Print a Div" , a JavaScript popup window is created and extracted the contents of the HTML div elements to store it in a JavaScript variable. Then the contents of the HTML div elements are written to the popup window and finally the window is printed using the JavaScript Window print() command.
