NAME ^

Prima::PrintDialog - standard printer setup dialog

DESCRIPTION ^

Provides a standard dialog that allows the user to select a printer and its options. The toolkit does not provide the in-depth management of the printer options; this can only be accessed by executing a printer-specific setup window, called by Prima::Printer::setup_dialog. The class invokes this method when the user presses 'Properties' button. Otherwise, the class provides only selection of a printer from the printer list.

When the dialog finished successfully, the selected printer is set as the current by writing to Prima::Printer::printer property. This technique allows direct use of the user-selected printer and its properties without prior knowledge of the selection process.

SYNOPSIS ^

        use Prima::PrintDialog;

        $dlg = Prima::PrintSetupDialog-> create;
        if ( $dlg-> execute) {
                my $p = $::application-> get_printer;
                if ( $p-> begin_doc ) {
                        $p-> text_out( 'Hello world', 10, 10);
                        $p-> end_doc;
                }
        }
        $dlg-> destroy;
