Description

A GtkPrintJob object represents a job that is sent to a printer. You only need to deal directly with print jobs if you use the non-portable GtkPrintUnixDialog API.

Use gtk_print_job_get_surface() to obtain the cairo surface onto which the pages must be drawn. Use gtk_print_job_send() to send the finished job to the printer. If you don’t use cairo GtkPrintJob also supports printing of manually generated postscript, via gtk_print_job_set_source_file().

Functions

GtkPrintJobCompleteFunc ()

void
(*GtkPrintJobCompleteFunc) (GtkPrintJob *print_job,
                            gpointer user_data,
                            const GError *error);

The type of callback that is passed to gtk_print_job_send(). It is called when the print job has been completely sent.

Parameters

print_job

the GtkPrintJob

 

user_data

user data that has been passed to gtk_print_job_send()

 

error

a GError that contains error information if the sending of the print job failed, otherwise NULL

 

gtk_print_job_new ()

GtkPrintJob *
gtk_print_job_new (const gchar *title,
                   GtkPrinter *printer,
                   GtkPrintSettings *settings,
                   GtkPageSetup *page_setup);

Creates a new GtkPrintJob.

title

the job title

 

printer

a GtkPrinter

 

settings

a GtkPrintSettings

 

page_setup

a GtkPageSetup

 

Returns

a new GtkPrintJob

Since: 2.10


gtk_print_job_get_settings ()

GtkPrintSettings *
gtk_print_job_get_settings (GtkPrintJob *job);

Gets the GtkPrintSettings of the print job.

Parameters

job

a GtkPrintJob

 

Returns

the settings of job .

[transfer none]

Since: 2.10


gtk_print_job_get_printer ()

GtkPrinter *
gtk_print_job_get_printer (GtkPrintJob *job);

Gets the GtkPrinter of the print job.

Parameters

job

a GtkPrintJob

 

Returns

the printer of job .

[transfer none]

Since: 2.10


gtk_print_job_get_title ()

const gchar *
gtk_print_job_get_title (GtkPrintJob *job);

Gets the job title.

Parameters

job

a GtkPrintJob

 

Returns

the title of job

Since: 2.10


gtk_print_job_get_status ()

GtkPrintStatus
gtk_print_job_get_status (GtkPrintJob *job);

Gets the status of the print job.

Parameters

gtk_print_job_set_source_fd ()

gboolean
gtk_print_job_set_source_fd (GtkPrintJob *job,
                             int fd,
                             GError **error);

Make the GtkPrintJob send an existing document to the printing system. The file can be in any format understood by the platforms printing system (typically PostScript, but on many platforms PDF may work too). See gtk_printer_accepts_pdf() and gtk_printer_accepts_ps().

This is similar to gtk_print_job_set_source_file(), but takes expects an open file descriptor for the file, instead of a filename.

                               GError **error);

Make the GtkPrintJob send an existing document to the printing system. The file can be in any format understood by the platforms printing system (typically PostScript, but on many platforms PDF may work too). See gtk_printer_accepts_pdf() and gtk_printer_accepts_ps().

If track_status is TRUE, the print job will try to continue report on the status of the print job in the printer queues and printer. This can allow your application to show things like “out of paper” issues, and when the print job actually reaches the printer.

This function is often implemented using some form of polling, so it should not be enabled unless needed.
