Struct gtk4::Printer[][src]

pub struct Printer(_);
Expand description

A Printer object represents a printer.

You only need to deal directly with printers if you use the non-portable PrintUnixDialog API.

A Printer allows to get status information about the printer, such as its description, its location, the number of queued jobs, etc. Most importantly, a Printer object can be used to create a PrintJob object, which lets you print to the printer.

Implements

glib::ObjectExt

Implementations

This is supported on Linux only.

Creates a new builder-pattern struct instance to construct Printer objects.

This method returns an instance of PrinterBuilder which can be used to create Printer objects.

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer accepts input in PDF format.

Returns

true if self accepts PDF

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer accepts input in PostScript format.

Returns

true if self accepts PostScript

This is supported on Linux only.

Compares two printers.

b

another Printer

Returns

0 if the printer match, a negative value if self < b, or a positive value if self > b

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns the printer’s capabilities.

This is useful when you’re using PrintUnixDialog’s manual-capabilities setting and need to know which settings the printer can handle and which you must handle yourself.

This will return 0 unless the printer’s details are available, see has_details() and request_details().

Returns

the printer’s capabilities

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns default page size of self.

Returns

a newly allocated PageSetup with default page size of the printer.

This is supported on Linux only.

Gets the description of the printer.

Returns

the description of self

This is supported on Linux only.

Retrieve the hard margins of self.

These are the margins that define the area at the borders of the paper that the printer cannot print to.

Note: This will not succeed unless the printer’s details are available, see has_details() and request_details().

Returns

true iff the hard margins were retrieved

top

a location to store the top margin in

bottom

a location to store the bottom margin in

left

a location to store the left margin in

a location to store the right margin in

This is supported on Linux only.

Retrieve the hard margins of self for paper_size.

These are the margins that define the area at the borders of the paper that the printer cannot print to.

Note: This will not succeed unless the printer’s details are available, see has_details() and request_details().

paper_size

a PaperSize

Returns

true iff the hard margins were retrieved

top

a location to store the top margin in

bottom

a location to store the bottom margin in

left

a location to store the left margin in

right

a location to store the right margin in

This is supported on Linux only.

Gets the name of the icon to use for the printer.

Returns

the icon name for self

This is supported on Linux only.

Gets the number of jobs currently queued on the printer.

Returns

the number of jobs on self

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns a description of the location of the printer.

Returns

the location of self

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns the name of the printer.

Returns

the name of self

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns the state message describing the current state of the printer.

Returns

the state message of self

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer details are available.

Returns

true if self details are available

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer is accepting jobs

Returns

true if self is accepting jobs

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer is currently active (i.e. accepts new jobs).

Returns

true if self is active

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer is the default printer.

Returns

true if self is the default

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer is currently paused.

A paused printer still accepts jobs, but it is not printing them.

Returns

true if self is paused

This is supported on Linux only.

Returns whether the printer is virtual (i.e. does not represent actual printer hardware, but something like a CUPS class).

Returns

true if self is virtual

This is supported on Linux only.

Lists all the paper sizes self supports.

This will return and empty list unless the printer’s details are available, see has_details() and request_details().

Returns

a newly allocated list of newly allocated PageSetups.

This is supported on Linux only.

Requests the printer details.

When the details are available, the signal::Printer::details-acquired signal will be emitted on self.

This is supported on Linux only.

Emitted in response to a request for detailed information about a printer from the print backend.

The success parameter indicates if the information was actually obtained.

success

true if the details were successfully acquired
