Summary0006796: Test Report - No Table background color when printing through HTML
DescriptionWhen i add a table to a testcase and give tablecells a background color (cell properties -> Background Color) then that works OK. The background colors are displayed within Testlink.

When i print a testreport for a testplan/test specification with this testcase the table background color is printed OK if i print using Report Format 'MS Word'. The HTML is converted to a MS Word document and all tablecells have the right background color.

However when i print using Report Format HTML all table cell background color (and textcolor for that matter) is reset to black on white.
Steps To Reproduce- Create testcase with a table in testcase Summary.
- Add testcase to testplan / test specification
- Print test specification report, select Report Format 'HTML' and press the Print button. Select destination printer and check printout. Either paper print of pdf print both have no color in the table.

Tested with:
- TestLink 1.9.9(Lone Ranger)
- TestLink 1.9.13 [DEV] (Stormbringer) 20141019 (demo from

The steps to reproduce cannot be made much clearer. It literaly is:
A - create a testcase with a table e.g. in summary of in one of the teststeps.
B - give some of the table cells a different background color e.g. red, blue and yellow
C - add testcase to testplan
D - print the test report using Report Format 'HTML'
====== step D in more detail ====
= goto Test Reports
= select Test plan report (check all content)
= click on one of the testsuites below to show the resulting testreport in the browser (note the colors are still present in the browser view)
= Select Report Format 'HTML'
= Press the Print button.
= dialog appears to choose destination printer)
= Select destination printer and check the printout. Chosen printer makes no difference. Either color paper print, blackwhite paper print or pdf print both have no color in the table i.e. black letters on white cell background.
====== end of step D in more detail ====
