I don't believe so.
Have a look at JInternalFrame it may do what you're after.

What i really want to do is print the contents of a Jpanel using something similar to

public void printPage(JFrame jf, String title)
{
     Properties pProp = new Properties();
     PrintJob pJob = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getPrintJob(jf,title,pProp);

......
}

where jf is a JPanel ????
any suggestions ????

i was going to try and change my JPanel to a JFrame and then print that instead of the panel but it wasnt really ever going to work out.

the printing method works fine, it brings up the printing dialog box and prints a sheet but theres nothing there to print!!!!

Thanks for all your help
your great!

the whole project is due in on monday afternoon anyway so im only trying to get more marks by putting in the printing function!

Thanks again

Don't think this will make any difference

> but theres nothing there to print!!!!

Do you call the JPanel's print() method?


Sorry I can't be more help, I've got a few deliverables to complete for some clients.

Thank you for the suggestion
ill have a look
actually just a small other question since your busy - can you load the contents of a JPanel into a Graphics object and maybe print the graphics object?


(I'll be using java for 6 months soon so this is why i know nothing!!!!!!)

Thank you

That's what the print() method is for.
