Hello,
I'm attempting to enable printing of a JPanel that contains a mixture
of Swing and Java2D components.
In the JPanel->print method I have have code that seems to correctly calculate the portion of the JPanel that should be printed on a given call.
Now, for the broken/failing part...drawing the appropriate portion of the JPanel into the proper place in the Graphics context in the "print" method (g below).
paintComponent(g);
//next line should copy the page of interest to 0,0 in g
g.copyArea(startX, startY, imageWidth, imageHeight, -startX, -startY);
The copyArea (JVM 1.4.2) fails with the following:
java.lang.InternalError: transformed copyArea not implemented yet
So, the question is...is this a valid approach? Other suggestions to accomplish the goal?
Thanks in advance.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
