Inheritance diagram of PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo

Detailed Description

Use the static functions to generate a list of QPrinterInfo objects. Each QPrinterInfo object in the list represents a single printer and can be queried for name, supported paper sizes, and whether or not it is the default printer.

class QPrinterInfo

QPrinterInfo(printer)

QPrinterInfo(other)

param other

QPrinterInfo

param printer

QPrinter

Constructs an empty QPrinterInfo object.

isNull()

static PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.availablePrinterNames()
Return type

list of strings

Returns a list of all the available Printer Names on this system.

It is recommended to use this instead of availablePrinters() as it will be faster on most systems.

Note that the list may become outdated if changes are made on the local system or remote print server. Only instantiate required QPrinterInfo instances when needed, and always check for validity before calling.

static PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.availablePrinters()
Return type

Returns a list of QPrinterInfo objects for all the available printers on this system.

It is NOT recommended to use this as creating each printer instance may take a long time, especially if there are remote networked printers, and retained instances may become outdated if changes are made on the local system or remote print server. Use availablePrinterNames() instead and only instantiate printer instances as you need them.

PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.defaultColorMode()
Return type

ColorMode

Returns the default color mode of this printer.

PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.defaultDuplexMode()
Return type

DuplexMode

Returns the default duplex mode of this printer.

PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.defaultPageSize()
Return type

QPageSize

Returns the current default Page Size for this printer.

static PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.defaultPrinter()
Return type

QPrinterInfo

Returns the default printer on the system.

The return value should be checked using isNull() before being used, in case there is no default printer.

On some systems it is possible for there to be available printers but none of them set to be the default printer.

static PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.defaultPrinterName()
Return type

unicode

Returns the current default printer name.

PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.description()

Return type

bool

Returns whether this printer is currently the default printer.

PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.isNull()

QPageSize

Returns the minimum physical page size supported by this printer.

static PySide2.QtPrintSupport.QPrinterInfo.printerInfo(printerName)
Parameters

printerName – unicode

Return type

QPrinterInfo

Returns the printer printerName .

The return value should be checked using isNull() before being used, in case the named printer does not exist.
