Print Table or HTML or ANYTHING... [message #444195] Fri, 08 October 2004 13:57 Go to next message

Hi!

I'm writting Desktop application using Eclipse RCP.
I have to print some table. This is normal table - user can sort (by
clicking on header), can resize, etc.
Now I want to print that table... HOW? Please - could you give me some link
where is written - step by step how?
Could be to difficult (printing table) so I'm able to easli convert this
table to HTMLDocument - nice, isn't it? But - what now?
How can I print HTML document? Especially when it is 10 or more pages
long...
For "big" reports I'm using JasperReports - it works good, but I can't use
it when I don't know what will be printed (layout)!
I could prepare "realtime" jasper report definition (for concrete Table) but
then I have to COMPILE IT and I don't wont this.

Any solutions? I can't imagine that so commonly used feature - like PRINT -
is not covered by some standard routines...
..Net is a winner???? ;)

To print something using SWT see the following snippet:
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet133.java?rev=HEAD& amp;content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

If you want to print the contents of a table, you need to format the output
yourself. The example above describes how to wrap text and determine your
position on the printed page or pagination etc.
