Implemented Interfaces

GtkPrintUnixDialog implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Includes

#include <gtk/gtkprintunixdialog.h>

Description

GtkPrintUnixDialog implements a print dialog for platforms which don’t provide a native print dialog, like Unix. It can be used very much like any other GTK+ dialog, at the cost of the portability offered by the high-level printing API

In order to print something with GtkPrintUnixDialog, you need to use gtk_print_unix_dialog_get_selected_printer() to obtain a GtkPrinter object and use it to construct a GtkPrintJob using gtk_print_job_new().

GtkPrintUnixDialog uses the following response values:

Printing support was added in GTK+ 2.10.

GtkPrintUnixDialog as GtkBuildable

The GtkPrintUnixDialog implementation of the GtkBuildable interface exposes its notebook internal children with the name “notebook”.
