    Give the code you have attempted.
    You won't get full code here, so pleas post how much you have tried.
    Hint-
    Try using methods setVisible(true), setSize(width, height) of JFrame class.

    See the tutorial on the Sun...I mean, Oracle, website.
    Lesson: Printing (The Java™ Tutorials > 2D Graphics)
    Its fairly easy to implement the Printable interface and work from there. I'd suggest working through the examples in the tutorial then working from there...if you has problems along the way I'd suggest posting a specific example for others to chew on.

    Hi all...
    The code in the link :

    Printing Support in Swing Components (The Java™ Tutorials > 2D Graphics > Printing)

    is so good, since it reachs the final goal and prints exactelly what i need (a component with all its subComponents)...
    But it is NOT so simple to import it to my original application code...
    in Fact, i have my own DataBase-Java-application with about 100+ pages of code...
    in a side of this application, i need to print a JFrame -or JTabbedPane- with its SubComponents...
    i tried to use directely in my code the method :

    frameToPrint.printAll(g);

    But what is the Graphics g ??
    i tried create a Graphics object g, i get that it is (abstract and can't be instantiab...) message...

    All what i want is to simplify the code in the above link since i dont want what he does inside (Creation of Gui and main and other things...)
    Simply : what i have to add to my code to quickly and directely use the printAll() method or like ?!
    Sorry and Many Thanks for any help...

    in fact, i have to print it as LANDSCAPE position but it is always printed in the PORTRAIT (other Orientation) Position ....
    i tried to use many functions like setPaper(), setOrientation().....still failed

    Default Re: Print out a JFrame

    I'm having a problem printing as well. I've made a program that takes input from the user to calculate specific formulas for making gears. I'm using a tabbed pane, with Panels for each pane. input is entered into JTextfields, and output to JTextfields as well.

    My question, how do i format and print JUST the output. i don't want to print the whole JFrame, just the output fields.
