You can print the document in document editor by passing the window instance. This is useful to implement print in third party frameworks such as electron, where the window instance will not be available. Refer to the following example.

import { DocumentEditor, Print } from '@syncfusion/ej2-documenteditor';

DocumentEditor.Inject(Print);

let documenteditor: DocumentEditor = new DocumentEditor({
    enablePrint: true
});
documenteditor.appendTo('#DocumentEditor');
documenteditor.print(window);

Page setup

Some of the print options cannot be configured using JavaScript. Refer to the following links to learn more about the browser page setup:

However, you can customize margins, paper, and layout options by modifying the section format properties using page setup dialog

import { DocumentEditor,Print, PageSetupDialog, Editor, Selection, EditorHistory} from '@syncfusion/ej2-documenteditor';

DocumentEditor.Inject(Print, PageSetupDialog, Editor, Selection, EditorHistory);

let documenteditor: DocumentEditor = new DocumentEditor({
    isReadOnly: false,
    enablePrint: true,
    enablePageSetupDialog: true,
    enableEditor: true,
    enableSelection: true,
    enableEditorHistory: true
});
documenteditor.appendTo('#DocumentEditor');
documenteditor.showPageSetupDialog();

By customizing margins, papers, and layouts, the layout of the document will be changed in document editor. To modify these options during print operation, serialize the document as SFDT using the serialize method in document editor instance and open the SFDT data in another instance of document editor in separate window.

The following example shows how to customize layout options only for printing.

var printButton = new ej.buttons.Button();
printButton.appendTo('#print');

document.getElementById('print').addEventListener('click',function (){
    var sfdtData = documenteditor1.serialize();
    documenteditor2.open(sfdtData);
    //Set A5 paper size
    documenteditor2.selection.sectionFormat.pageWidth = 419.55;
    documenteditor2.selection.sectionFormat.pageHeight = 595.30;
    documenteditor2.print();
