re: printing

Posted by Jay on November 30, 2001 at 8:12 AM

Yes Chin, I could use JavaScript window.print()but it prints out the page as it appears. I would like to format the content (set font, align text) so that it appears more like a report. To be more specific, I would like to use java.awt.Print classes on a client machine.

The PrinterJob class starts off with:
The PrinterJob class is the principal class that controls printing. An application calls methods in this class to set up a job, optionally to invoke a print dialog with the user, and then to print the pages of the job.

Cant I use it in anything other than an application?
