Print Setup Dialog


A Print dialog is displayed by an application when a button of print command is pressed by user or he selects an item from print menu. In order to display this dialog

Call the printdialog method of the PrinterJob class:
Java Code:
PrinterJob pj = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
...
    if (pj.printDialog()) {
        try {pj.print();}
        catch (PrinterException exc) {
            System.out.println(exc);
         }
     }   
...
This method proves to be true when Ok is clicked by user so that to leave the dialog. Otherwise it would be considered as false. Choices of user in dialog get certain constraints that is dependent on the format as well number of pages that are being set for the PrinterJob.
