Implemented Interfaces

Properties

  "current-page"             gint                  : Read / Write
  "page-setup"               GtkPageSetup*         : Read / Write

Description

GtkPrintUnixDialog implements a print dialog for platforms which don't provide a native print dialog, like Unix. It can be used very much like any other GTK+ dialog, at the cost of the portability offered by the high-level printing API

In order to print something with GtkPrintUnixDialog, you need to use gtk_print_unix_dialog_get_selected_printer() to obtain a GtkPrinter object and use it to construct a GtkPrintJob using gtk_print_job_new().

GtkPrintUnixDialog uses the following response values:

GTK_RESPONSE_OK

for the "Print" button

GTK_RESPONSE_APPLY

for the "Preview" button

GTK_RESPONSE_CANCEL

for the "Cancel" button

Printing support was added in GTK+ 2.10.

GtkPrintUnixDialog as GtkBuildable

The GtkPrintUnixDialog implementation of the GtkBuildable interface exposes its notebook internal children with the name "notebook".

Example 48. A GtkPrintUnixDialog UI definition fragment.

<object class="GtkPrintUnixDialog" id="dialog1">
  <child internal-child="notebook">
    <object class="GtkNotebook" id="notebook">
      <child>
        <object class="GtkLabel" id="tabcontent">
        <property name="label">Content on notebook tab</property>
        </object>
      </child>
      <child type="tab">
        <object class="GtkLabel" id="tablabel">
          <property name="label">Tab label</property>
        </object>
        <packing>
          <property name="tab_expand">False</property>
          <property name="tab_fill">False</property>
        </packing>
      </child>

  GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_COLLATE          = 1 << 2,

  GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_NUMBER_UP        = 1 << 8,
  GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_NUMBER_UP_LAYOUT = 1 << 9
} GtkPrintCapabilities;

An enum for specifying which features the print dialog should offer. If neither GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_GENERATE_PDF nor GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_GENERATE_PS is specified, GTK+ assumes that all formats are supported.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_PAGE_SET

Print dialog will offer printing even/odd pages.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_COPIES

Print dialog will allow to print multiple copies.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_COLLATE

Print dialog will allow to collate multiple copies.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_REVERSE

Print dialog will allow to print pages in reverse order.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_SCALE

Print dialog will allow to scale the output.

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_GENERATE_PDF

The program will send the document to the printer in PDF format

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_GENERATE_PS

The program will send the document to the printer in Postscript format

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_PREVIEW

Print dialog will offer a previe

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_NUMBER_UP

Print dialog will offer printing multiple pages per sheet. Since 2.12

GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_NUMBER_UP_LAYOUT

Print dialog will allow to rearrange pages when printing multiple pages per sheet. Since 2.14

gtk_print_unix_dialog_set_manual_capabilities ()

void                gtk_print_unix_dialog_set_manual_capabilities
                                                        (GtkPrintUnixDialog *dialog,
                                                         GtkPrintCapabilities capabilities);

This lets you specify the printing capabilities your application supports. For instance, if you can handle scaling the output then you pass GTK_PRINT_CAPABILITY_SCALE. If you don't pass that, then the dialog will only let you select the scale if the printing system automatically handles scaling.

dialog :

a GtkPrintUnixDialog

capabilities :

the printing capabilities of your application

Since 2.10
