Enum PrinterJob.JobStatus

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<PrinterJob.JobStatus>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum PrinterJob.JobStatus
extends Enum<PrinterJob.JobStatus>
An enum class used in reporting status of a print job. Applications can listen to the job status via the jobStatus property, or may query it directly using getJobStatus().

The typical life cycle of a job is as follows :

  • job will be created with status NOT_STARTED and will stay there during configuration via dialogs etc.
  • job will enter state PRINTING when the first page is printed.
  • job will enter state DONE once the job is successfully completed without being cancelled or encountering an error. The job is now completed.
  • A job that encounters an ERROR or is CANCELED is also considered completed.

A job may not revert to an earlier status in its life cycle and the current job state affects operations that may be performed. For example a job may not begin printing again if it has previously passed that state and entered any of the termination states.

      public static final PrinterJob.JobStatus CANCELED
      The job has been cancelled by the application. May not display dialogs or initiate printing. Job should be discarded. There is no need to call endJob().
    • ERROR

      public static final PrinterJob.JobStatus ERROR
      The job encountered an error. Job should be discarded. There is no need to call endJob().
    • DONE

      The job initiated printing and later called endJob() which reported success. The job can be discarded as it cannot be re-used.
