Detailed Description

The QPrintDialog class provides a dialog for specifying the printer's configuration.

The dialog allows users to change document-related settings, such as the paper size and orientation, type of print (color or grayscale), range of pages, and number of copies to print.

Controls are also provided to enable users to choose from the printers available, including any configured network printers.

Typically, QPrintDialog objects are constructed with a QPrinter object, and executed using the exec() function.

 QPrintDialog printDialog(printer, parent);
 if (printDialog.exec() == QDialog::Accepted) {
     // print ...

If the dialog is accepted by the user, the QPrinter object is correctly configured for printing.

The printer dialog (shown above in Plastique style) enables access to common printing properties. On X11 platforms that use the CUPS printing system, the settings for each available printer can be modified via the dialog's Properties push button.

On Windows and Mac OS X, the native print dialog is used, which means that some QWidget and QDialog properties set on the dialog won't be respected. In addition, the native print dialog on Mac OS X does not support setting printer options, i.e. QAbstractPrintDialog::setEnabledOptions() and QAbstractPrintDialog::addEnabledOption() have no effect.
