    I was doing this few weeks ago. Please write which version of arcgis api are you using, and what server-side language are you fluent in. and as @Sunil wrote before - reformat your code.

  • @Mayank and please cut off your IP adress from code. It is very unsecure to do such a things.

In ArcGIS 10.1 there is option to print map by Export Web Map Task Service. If you are using API v. 3.x you can just use Print Task from API.

The sample of using dijit with PrintTask can be found here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/help/jssamples_start.htm#jssamples/widget_print_webmap.html

or just class description in here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/help/jsapi_start.htm


if I were you I would do it like this:

1) you have to define URL adress to your print service:

var url ='http://servicesbeta4.esri.com/arcgis/rest/services/Utilities/ExportWebMap/GPServer/Export Web Map Task';
var printTask = new esri.tasks.PrintTask(url);

2) then you have to define callback function for print task execute:

var printResult = function(result){

3) you have to set new print object with your previously parameters and your existing map object:

var params = new esri.tasks.PrintParameters();
  params.map = map;

4) and finally execute print task

printTask.execute(params, printResult);

FYI it is only general idea of this task. Now you should wrap with your own JS code.

  • yes i have already gone through with this ,but there is predefined script like print and printdijit like that, i want a simple print button and then i want to print my map .i have that link before but cudn't get how to customized it ,as i am new in arcgis .so could any one please share one demo example for that.
