I am trying to create pdf from my web page. I am trying to use Html2Canvas to take image and then save as pdf using Jspdf. 
But for some reason my code does not work.

Please look at my code and try to help me out.

What I have tried:

<button class="create_pdf" myPrint="#canvas" id="btn">Export To PDF</button>
<script type="text/javascript">

        $(document).ready(function () {
            $(".create_pdf").on("click", function (e) {
                var selector = $('myprint');

            var     form,  a4 = [595.28, 841.89]; // for a4 size paper width and height

            function createPDF(selector) {
                form = $(selector);
                getCanvas().then(function (canvas) {
                    var cache_width = form.width()

                     img = canvas.toDataURL("image/png"),
                     doc = new jsPDF({
                         unit: 'px',
                         format: 'a4'
                    doc.addImage(img, 'JPEG', 20, 20);

            // create canvas object
            function getCanvas() {

                form.width((a4[0] * 1.33333) - 80).css('max-width', 'none');
                return html2canvas(form, {
                    imageTimeout: 2000,
                    removeContainer: true
