HI,
did anybody know how to initiate print in background using Java Printing API.
I would like to print JPanel without showing in the Jframe
My requirement is I need to write some text to Jpanel and Print the JPanel without showing to user.
or is there any alternative ? I mean if you have some text with you if you want to print it without
showing what is the best way to do it?.
I am using Swing as my UI.
Any Ideas greatly appreciated
Thanks
Murphy

If your requirement is not to display the print dialog, use the following code
......
......
JobAttributes jobAttributes = new JobAttributes();
jobAttributes.setDialog(JobAttributes.NONE);
......
......
frame.getToolkit().getPrintJob(frame, jobtitle, jobAttributes, pageAttributes);
......
......
