How to print report twice but showDialog only once


Recommended Posts

I want to select a printer(not the default printer) only once, than print all the reports to the selected printer?

Is it possible?

//this dose not work for multi-report printing

JasperPrintManager.printReport(jasperPrint, (i == 0));

if (JasperPrintManager.printReport(jasperPrint1, true)) {

JasperPrintManager.printReport(jasperPrint2, false);



jasperPrint1 and jasperPrint2 are the same report with different data, user should select a printer, say "Printer1"(not default printer), before printing jasperPrint1.

But after jasperPrint1 was printed jasperPrint2 shall be printed to "Printer1" directly without showing PrintDialog.


Is it possible?

I think what you are saying has something to do with this feature request here:



But, I think what you could do is to show the print dialog for picking the print service somewhere in your application, prior to actually calling the JRPrintServiceExporter and then pass the selected printer by name to the exporter.


Check the /demo/samples/printservice sample provided for details about how to print to a specific printer by name.


I hope this helps.

Thanks, it works, but the printservice sample dose not use PRINT_SERVICE parameter.


my code like:


PrinterJob printerJob = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
if (!printerJob.printDialog()) {
return false;
PrintService printService = printerJob.getPrintService();
JRPrintServiceExporter exporter = new JRPrintServiceExporter();
for (int i = 0; i < list.size(); i++) {
Map parameters = new HashMap();
JRDataSource ds = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource((List) list.get(i));
JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport("reportName.jasper", parameters, ds);
exporter.setParameter(JRExporterParameter.JASPER_PRINT, jasperPrint);
exporter.setParameter(JRPrintServiceExporterParameter.PRINT_SERVICE, printService);
