JPDF Dialogs

The JPDF includes a wide variety of dialogs which can easily be incorportated into an an existing Java application.
The dialogs presented here are a small sample of those available in the JPDF.  You can use the JPDF Demo to gain a more complete understanding of JPDF capabilities.

Dialog Categories

The JPDF provides three categories of dialogs: (1) Setup Dialogs, (2) Preview Dialogs, and (3) Print Dialogs. Each of these catagories is briefly described below.
  1. Setup Dialogs allow the user to establish the settings that will be used for printing (but not to actually print). Typically these dialogs allow the user to specify page setup options such as the paper size, page orientation, page margins, and so on. The JPDF provides a large number of setup options (in addition to those provided as part of the Java JRE). All of these options can be specified either programatically or from a dialog.

Page Setup Dialog
  1. Preview Dialogs allow the user to view an on-screen representation of how the material to be printed will appear on paper. The Preview Dialog provided by the JPDF allows the user to invoke a Page Setup dialog from within the Preview Dialog, change some of the Print Attributes, and apply the new attributes to the preview display. Thus, providing the user with an efficient process by which he can make the adjustments necessary to arrange the material as needed prior to printing.

Print Preview Dialog
  1. Print Dialogs allow the user to print some material by submitting a Print Job to the printer. Typically, these dialogs allow the user to select the printer to be used, and to specify Print Job attributes such as the range of pages to be printed, the number of copies to be printed, whether color (if the printer supports it) should be used, and so on. The JPDF provides a variety of print dialogs which incorporate Page Setup and Preview functionality into the Print Dialog.
