After getting lots of replies from my last post SharePoint 2010 : Print Calendar list. I've decided to expand new solution with new functionality where you can add "Print Button" on each type of SharePoint lists, even if it is SharePoint Calendar list,Document libraries, tasks lists or any custom lists.
This feature is developed as a Sandbox Solution and successfully tested on SharePoint 2010, O365 SharePoint Online sites.
