Printing documents with WebRenderer




Printing documents with WebRenderer is relatively simple

IBrowserCanvas browser = BrowserFactory.spawnMozilla();


Please note

When printing documents automatically using the print(2) function, it is important to wait for the onDocumentComplete() event from within the Network Listener. This is to ensure the document has loaded fully before printing.

See "Events" for capturing print status events

Close up

browser.print(int) takes int values for the type of printing. If the "print" function is passed the int value "1", a Printer dialog is shown, where the user can select printer specific features, and things such as pages to print and printer to print pages.


browser.print(2) prints silently to the default printer. There are no noisy dialog boxes, the printer simply uses underlying default printer settings.

browser.print(2, "myprinter");

browser.print(2, "myprinter") prints silently to a specified printer. The list of available printers can be obtained by the following:

String[] availablePrinters = browser.getPrinterNames();

A String array is returned with the available printers names.

Other options that can be passed to the "print" function include 1 = Do Default, 2 = Dont Prompt (silent), 3 = Show Help.
