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.
QPrintDialog objects are constructed with a
QPrinter object, and executed using the
printDialog = QPrintDialog(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 macOS, the native print dialog is used, which means that some
QDialog properties set on the dialog won’t be respected. The native print dialog on macOS does not support setting printer options, i.e.
setOption() have no effect.
In Qt 4.4, it was possible to use the static functions to show a sheet on macOS. This is no longer supported in Qt 4.5. If you want this functionality, use
- class PySide6.QtPrintSupport.QPrintDialog(printer[, parent=None])#
Constructs a new modal printer dialog for the given
printer with the given
Constructs a print dialog with the given
Properties can be used directly when
from __feature__ import true_property is used or via accessor functions otherwise.
- property PᅟySide6.QtPrintSupport.QPrintDialog.options: PrintDialogOptions#
This property holds the various options that affect the look and feel of the dialog.
By default, all options are disabled.
Options should be set before showing the dialog. Setting them while the dialog is visible is not guaranteed to have an immediate effect on the dialog (depending on the option and on the platform).
- Access functions:
This signal is emitted when the user accepts the values set in the print dialog. The
printer parameter includes the printer that the settings were applied to.
- Return type:
- PySide6.QtPrintSupport.QPrintDialog.open(receiver, member)#
member – str
This is an overloaded function.
Opens the dialog and connects its
accepted() signal to the slot specified by
The signal will be disconnected from the slot when the dialog is closed.
- Return type:
Getter of property
- PySide6.QtPrintSupport.QPrintDialog.setOption(option[, on=true])#
