    I tried the app 'Save2PDF' but when i "send" the file, all the result of the javascript in the page (sums, orders etc) disappear.
    Is there someone who could help me?
    Is there a way to print a webpage (with javascript) to PDF?
    Thank you for any help.
    Try this method from jolliprint

    Thank you Bosvaark!
    I tried but jolliprint is not suitable because my html file is physically on the iPad and it hasn't an internet address (and I have to use it even when not i'm not connected) I also made a test putting the file online, but I wrote the javascript that stores the data on a cookie, and jolliprint doesn't work.

    Maybe the solution could be an app that allows me to open the html file and print pdf directly (without, at some point, "open in...") ... there is something suitable?
    (searching the web i found this one: "PDF PROvider for iPad" by Dar-Soft... do you know it? )

    Thanks again

    I'm using an app called Notebooks, it captures webpages, the other day I unzipped a complete web tutorial in Notebooks , and it runs as if it is from a website, it also converts to PDF, wether this will actually work I have no idea
    Perhaps if you email me the whole file I can test, or Dropbox to me

    Hi again , downloaded the zip file on the iPad , unzipped it in my file manager, the chose "open in " to Notebooks, it opens and I created a PDF.
    Is this that you want?
    I have placed the PDF file here for you to download.

    I took it further and it also worked in "saveto pdf" , perhaps I'm missing your desired workflow here?

    Thank you Bosvaark!
    You are very kind

    I'd like to print a PDF which keeps the results of the javascript in the webpage (selected items, sums ...)
    In the pdf that you posted it does not seem to happen.
    The PDF that i wish to get is similar to this:

    AirPrint to PDF-pdf.jpg

    I've attached a workflow, if you have the time

    I've attached a workflow, if you have the time
    The workflow is what I thought, the final web page should run and in safari on an iPad the selections and totals should work, but with your zipped webpage, the test will not work as a PDF print is incapable of keeping the totals when they are saved to PDF,

    Are you trying this as an experiment ? and are you testing wether a person with an iPad is able to AirPrint or save from safari to a PDF?
