In diesem Artikel

Report extensions are java-script programs that are used to customize printouts like invoice documents.

The program:

  1. Will call the main function printDocument() with the json object (for example the invoice) and the other parameters.
  2. It create a print document and shows the result in a print preview window.

Copies of some report apps that you can use as starting point are available at the following address: github.com/BananaAccounting
