PrinterJob implementations which can use PrintService’s will update the PrintService printerob this PrinterJob to reflect the new service selected by the user. Associate this PrinterJob with a new PrintService. Cancels a print job that is in progress. Attributes which are not specified display using the default for the service.

The code only works with printers which are capable of interpreting the PDF on their own. A convenience method which displays a cross-platform print dialog for all services which are capable of printing 2D graphics using the Pageable interface.

How can you set Java PrinterJob to Print to a File instead of a Printer

With the exception of selected printer, the PrinterJob state is not updated to reflect the user’s changes. It is useful for clients that have a set of attributes obtained from printDialog PrintRequestAttributeSet attributes and need a PageFormat to print a Pageable object.

If a supported attribute-value is specified in this attribute set, it will take precedence over the API settings for this print operation only. Can anyone tell me how to set the PrintRequestAttributeSet? Post as a guest Name. Creates and returns a PrinterJob which is initially associated with the default printer.

You can also follow these steps. As the user scrolls to a new print service selection, the values copied are based on the settings for the previous prknterjob, together with any user changes.

For clients of the Pageable interface, the PageFormat will always be as supplied by that interface, on a per page basis. Prints a set of pages using the settings in the attribute set. The choices available will reflect the print service currently set on this PrinterJob.

This only works on Linux, right?

Class rJob

The printing itself is still handeled by the PrinterJob of Java. Although posted many years ago, this response still works today and saved me hours of development effort. A convenience method which displays a cross-platform page setup dialog.

This method is overridden by subclasses which support specifying a Print Service. The document name can not be null. Applications that need to determine if there are suitable printers before creating a PrinterJob should ensure that the array returned from lookupPrintServices is not empty. See Printable for an explanation of the required behaviour of a Printable to ensure optimal printing via PrinterJob.


The following worked for me to print multiple PDF document with a print dialog: That documentation contains more detailed, developer-targeted descriptions, with conceptual overviews, definitions of terms, workarounds, and working code examples. Use is subject to license terms. My Printer did not support native PDF printing.

PrinterException – an error in the print system caused the job to be ;rint.

If the user cancels the dialog, the attributes will not reflect any changes made by the user. Clones the PageFormat argument and alters the clone to describe a default page size and orientation.
