Class PrinterInfo

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

    public final class PrinterInfo
    extends TextSyntax
    implements PrintServiceAttribute
    Class PrinterInfo is a printing attribute class, a text attribute, that provides descriptive information about a printer. This could include things like: "This printer can be used for printing color transparencies for HR presentations", or "Out of courtesy for others, please print only small (1-5 page) jobs at this printer", or even "This printer is going away on July 1, 1997, please find a new printer".

    IPP Compatibility: The string value gives the IPP name value. The locale gives the IPP natural language. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.
