Class DialogTypeSelection

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, PrintRequestAttribute

    public final class DialogTypeSelection
    extends EnumSyntax
    implements PrintRequestAttribute
    Class DialogTypeSelection is a printing attribute class, an enumeration, that indicates the user dialog type to be used for specifying printing options. If NATIVE is specified, then where available, a native platform dialog is displayed. If COMMON is specified, a cross-platform print dialog is displayed.

    This option to specify a native dialog for use with an IPP attribute set provides a standard way to reflect back of the setting and option changes made by a user to the calling application, and integrates the native dialog into the Java printing APIs. But note that some options and settings in a native dialog may not necessarily map to IPP attributes as they may be non-standard platform, or even printer specific options.

    IPP Compatibility: This is not an IPP attribute.
