Printing prints only first page

Hi there,

i've got a problem with printing a Vaadin page. I open my printpage in a seperate window. All data is displayed in this window. But if I try to print the page, my printer throws out only the first page. There are more data than that on the page and it gets lost.

Any clues ?

Thanks Thomas, i tried to set all sizes to undefined but it didn't work.

In my layout and in my UI is no such word like setSizeFull() anymore. (searched)
I set the size to undefined.

I see the difference on the screen. But Vaadin still takes the control of the scrolling. I recognized it because the down button of the scrollbar doesn't work if Vaadin takes control of the scrollbar.
Is it possible that the use of customLayout interferes with this?

Can I see in the HTML if Vaadin takes the scroll control? Perhaps I can see with firebug where the bad element is.

I have the save problems, and my workaround is:

private void setSizeUndefined2Print()
        com.vaadin.ui.JavaScript.getCurrent().execute("document.body.style.overflow = \"auto\";" +
                                                      "document.body.style.height  = \"auto\"");

if for some cases you need to switch back to "defined" size, next function can be used:

private void setSizeFull2Print()
        com.vaadin.ui.JavaScript.getCurrent().execute("document.body.style.overflow = \"\";" +
                                                      "document.body.style.height  = \"\"");
