I have two questions about the java multi-platform print dialog.
The first question is about the printing of double-sided which is supported by some high end printers but the thing is that when i want to change the properties so that the user can decide if he wants to print one-sided or double-sided but when i click on the appreance tab of the print dialog the Sides part seem to be always disabled no matter what i do.
The printing of double-side is printed out correctly bu what if i decide to print single-side but that part of the print dialog seems to be always disabled
This is what i am doing to call the multi-platform dialog to print double-sided
My other question is on collating the output of my print out using the java multi-platform print dialog. The thing is no matter even if i select the collate check box or not the output of the print out is always printed uncollated.
When i use the platform specific print dialog(windows in my case) the output can be printed collated or uncollated.
This is what i am doing to call the multi-platform dialog to print collated print-outs
It seems strange to me that if i use the sytem specific print dialog i can print both collated and uncollated printouts but if i use the java multi-platform print dialog the print out is always printed uncollated even when i specify it to be printed collated
There are no exceptions thrown and the program compiles with no errors for both my questions.
Am i calling java multi-platform print dialog and adding the attributes correctly for both my questions
Is this a bug or am i missing something for both my questions?
I really hope someone can help me with this problem
