Test print with watermark

Download and print a test PDF to verify that the rendered report contains the desired data and looks as expected in your layout.

The test print contains a watermark. The proof print contains a watermark. The final, "real" print will not have a watermark.

Either toggle ON the option Test print in the Ninox UI, or alternatively use a custom script and the functions printRecord or printAndSaveRecord.

Option A: without a custom script (Ninox UI)

Using data from Example: invoice PDF, view the files below: a test print with a watermark and a final print without a watermark.

Option B: with a custom script

printRecord(this, "templateLayoutName", data)
printAndSaveRecord(this, "templateLayoutName", data)

The data object can include the property _options with testPrint which overrides the default settings set by the print engine in the Ninox UI, i.e., if you previously toggled OFF Test print.


  1. Add a new layout element, here: a button.

  2. Paste the script below in the formula editor.

  3. Save changes.

  4. Click or tap the button to run the script.
