JHotDraw 7.4.1

org.jhotdraw.app.action.file
Class PrintFileAction

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.AbstractAction
      extended by org.jhotdraw.app.action.AbstractViewAction
          extended by org.jhotdraw.app.action.file.PrintFileAction
All Implemented Interfaces:
java.awt.event.ActionListener, java.io.Serializable, java.lang.Cloneable, java.util.EventListener, javax.swing.Action
Direct Known Subclasses:
PrintApplicationFileAction

public class PrintFileAction
extends AbstractViewAction

Presents a printer chooser to the user and then prints the View.

This action requires that the view implements the PrintableView interface.

This action is called when the user selects the Print item in the File menu. The menu item is automatically created by the application.

If you want this behavior in your application, you have to create it and put it in your ApplicationModel in method ApplicationModel.initApplication(org.jhotdraw.app.Application).

You should also create a PrintFileAction when you create this action.


Design Patterns

Framework
The interfaces and classes listed below define together the contracts of a smaller framework inside of the JHotDraw framework for document oriented applications.
Contract: PrintableView, PrintFileAction.

                       View view)
Creates a new instance.

Method Detail

actionPerformed

public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt)

printJava2D

public void printJava2D(PrintableView v)

public void printJava2DAlternative(PrintableView v)

printQuartz

public void printQuartz(PrintableView v)
On Mac OS X with the Quartz rendering engine, the following code achieves the best results.


isEnabled

public boolean isEnabled()
Returns true if the action is enabled. The enabled state of the action depends on the state that has been set using setEnabled() and on the enabled state of the application.

Specified by:
isEnabled in interface javax.swing.Action
Overrides:
isEnabled in class AbstractViewAction
Returns:
true if the action is enabled, false otherwise
