Dear Experts,

I have some text in TextArea object.
How can I send it directly to LPT1
with out proving any print setup options.

If you are pressing a Button,
this event should sent the contents
to printer. (Dot Matrix)

I Want DOS-Text print format,
not in RichText format.

Help me

Simply treat the LPT1 as though it is a normal file, and write the text to this file:

// Get the content of the text area
byte[] bytes = textArea.getText().getBytes();

try {
  FileOutputStream outputStream = new FileOutputStream("LPT1");
  outputStream.write(bytes);
  outputStream.close();
} catch (FileNotFoundException fileNotFoundException) {
  fileNotFoundException.printStackTrace();
  System.out.println("Error communicating with the printer.");
} catch (IOException ioException) {
  ioException.printStackTrace();
  System.out.println("Error printing on the printer.";
}
