Java games rock!

« Posted 2003-05-13 13:53:17 »

Do not know if this is the right place to post it. But I have non game related issue:

Is there a way to associate printDialog with a frame ? It appears that when I drag the print dialog across the screen, the screen gets repainted by the print dialog
and the application focus is lost.

public class ex5 extends JComponent implements Printable, MouseMotionListener,ActionListener,MouseListener
protected JFrame frame;

public ex5(JFrame frame)


public void printImage()

PrinterJob printJob = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
if (printJob.printDialog())
try {
} catch (Exception ex)

I know that PrintJob class allow you to issue getPrintJob with specified frame such as:

PrintJob printJob = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getPrintJob(frame, "Hello World", printprefs);

But how can I specify a frame for printDialog ?  The printing samples in Java tutorial have
the same issue. The samples can be found at

If you drag the printDialog, the screen will get painted by the printDialog.
