I have used OpenLayers+Extjs+GeoExt+Heron configuration to create a thin mapping client. I have added print icon to the client using (type: printdialog, options: {printURL etc}).

I have also the mapfish printing e.g. config.yaml in the geoserver data directory and validation of this installation via xxx/geoserver/pdf/info.json shows the print options as expected. However back to the app, whenever I click on the print icon, I get an error saying:

Error getting print options from server: undefined.  

Has anyone experienced this and have solved this problem?

Where have you defined the server? Are you using a proxy to circumvent the same-origin-policy? – Plux Jan 13 '14 at 11:57
