I have a question about the java multi-platform print dialog.
My question is on collating the output of my print out using the java multi-platform print dialog. The thing is no matter even if i select the collate check box or not the output of the print out is always printed uncollated.
When i use the platform specific print dialog(windows in my case) the output can be printed collated or uncollated.
This is what i am doing to call the multi-platform dialog to print collated print-outs
The below is sun's simple printing program but when i test this programming(when i switch the aset variable between collating and uncollating) the problem also arises.
This is the compilable program
It seems strange to me that if i use the sytem specific print dialog i can print both collated and uncollated printouts but if i use the java multi-platform print dialog the print out is always printed uncollated even when i specify it to be printed collated
There are no exceptions thrown and the program compiles with no errors.
Am i calling java multi-platform print dialog and adding the attributes correctly?
Is this a bug or am i missing something for both my questions?
This program was run on java 1.4.6 and 1.5.0_06 with both producing the same results
I really hope someone can help me with this problem
