I have 2 questions about print to file with java.awt:

1) With Java 1.4, when I use setFileName in the JobAttributes class, as soon as the user clicks on Print to File, this file name shows.
However, with Java 1.5, this file name does not show, a different file name shows. The reason why I want my file name to show is that I need a specific extension.

2) With Java 1.4, if in the window that comes up after clicking on Print to File, the user selects a specific directory where to save the file, the next time the user does a Print to File, the same directory comes up.
However, with Java 1.5, the selected directory is not remembered.

I do need to use java.awt, I cannot use javax.swing, because for printing to the printer, I need to call my own paint. Also, I need to use Java 1.5.

Please help, especially for question 1)

Thanks a lot!

The main problem was that the file name that I set in the JobAttributes class does not show in Java1.5, although it does show in Java 1.4.

For being able to see the file name should I just use:
FileDialog fileDialog = new FileDialog(frame, "out.eps", FileDialog.SAVE)
and where would I have to put this fileDialog?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
