Hi,

What I want to achieve is the following:

Three buttons : Print Setup, Print Preview and Print.

When clicking on Print Set Up, it opens the dialog which that has all the printing settings.

Once i am done with the setup, i can opt for print OR print preview or both one after another.

Currently it is not possible to create a PrintRequestAttributeSet using a PageFormat instance. Which means that if i am going to preview an image I have to define the page layout in two different locations. One for previwing and one for printing. Or am I wrong?

I use pageFormat = printJob.pageDialog(pageFormat) to display the page layout dialog and let the user choose his setts. The PageFormat returned is later used to display a print preview dialog. My problem is how to construct a PrintRequestAttributeSet based on this PageFormat instance so if a print operation is requested it is performed with those setts. Does that make sense?
