require(["esri/widgets/Print"], function(Print) { /* code goes here */ });
Class: esri/widgets/Print
Inheritance: Print Widget Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.2

The Print widget connects your application with a printing service to allow the map to be printed. It takes advantage of server-side, high-quality, full cartographic print functionality using the ExportWebMap service of ArcGIS, which can be configured with custom layout templates. One is provided that shows the map only, while another provides a layout with legend, etc. The Print widget works with the PrintTask which generates a printer-ready version of the map.

Known Limitations

  • There is no current support for printing SceneViews. Instead, see SceneView.takeScreenshot().
  • There is no current support for printing highlighted features. Instead, see MapView.takeScreenshot().
  • VectorTileLayer printing requires ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or later.
  • Labels currently cannot be printed as part of a FeatureLayer with ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or any Printing Service published with ArcMap.
  • ImageryLayer cannot be printed with ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or earlier, or any Printing Service published with ArcMap.
  • The print server does not directly print SVG symbols. Rather, they are converted to PictureMarkerSymbols for display.
  • Make certain that any resources to be printed are accessible by the print server. For example, if printing a map containing PictureMarkerSymbols, the URL to these symbols must be accessible to the print server for it to work properly.
  • Printing layers rendered with the DotDensityRenderer will create a client-side image of the layer in the printout.
  • For printing secure VectorTileLayers with ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or 10.6.0, or for printing VectorTileLayers with ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or any Printing Service published with ArcMap, the PrintTask will create a client-side image for the VectorTileLayer to use in the printout. This has some limitations related to large size printing quality and a dependency on browser window height/width ratio.
