Hello there,

I am looking for a Java solution that will enable me to have control over the printer tray to which my application prints. Thanks.

Cheers,
Jack

Look in the packages javax.print and javax.print.attribute. Perhaps the class javax.print.attribute.standard.MediaTray can help you here. It does not let you specify a tray per se, but rather a tray that contains a particular type of media (e.g. A4 paper).

Hi All,

I have the same problem.. i tried selecting a tray from a printer...

using MediaTray .. was not able to do so.. the print was from a

default tray only...

this was the code i used...

PrintRequestAttributeSet aset = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
aset.add(MediaSizeName.ISO_A4);
aset.add(MediaTray.MANUAL);


PrintService[] pservices = PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(
flavor, aset);


atlast i load the PDF and prnt the document.... but i was not able to
print it in the defined Media Tray.. it was from default tray..always..

can somebody help me out with this prob....
