Hi all, I'm lorenzo and I'm new in this forum.

I write you because I can't print with swt library.

I have a Shell with some elements I'd like to print all contents in the shell (like a printscreen). I find some examples, but at the moment I print a white paper.

the code that I insert in the click-event of a button is:

PrintDialog printDialog = new PrintDialog(shell); // "shell" is the most bigger object that contain all the items I'd like to print
PrinterData printerData = printDialog.open();
Printer printer = new Printer(printerData); 
printer.startJob("");
printer.startPage();
GC gc = new GC(printer);

printer.endPage();
gc.dispose();
printer.endJob();				
printer.dispose();


Someone can help me?!?

Thanks in advance

Lorenzo

Hi,

You can find the snippets related to printing here --> http://eclipse.org/swt/snippets/#printing
You can try to print the shell in 2 steps:
1. Get the screenshot of the shell as an image
--> Snippet292
2. Print the image. Snippet133 shows printing text, you can modify it to print the image created in step1.
