I have a look at this code, it allows you to print to a nominated printer by name. However what I want to do is invoke the JasperViewer dialog and pass the default printer to that, but I don't know how to do that.


public static void run(String ReportName,Map parameters)




JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObjectFromLocation(ReportName+".jasper");

Connection conn = Common.selectedHost.db.conn;

JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, parameters, conn);


JRPrintServiceExporter exporter = new JRPrintServiceExporter();

exporter.setParameter( JRPrintServiceExporterParameter.JASPER_PRINT, jasperPrint);

PrintServiceAttributeSet serviceAttributeSet = new HashPrintServiceAttributeSet();

serviceAttributeSet.add(new PrinterName(JPrint.getPrinterShortName("My printer queue name",null));

exporter.setParameter( JRPrintServiceExporterParameter.PRINT_SERVICE_ATTRIBUTE_SET, serviceAttributeSet);

exporter.setParameter(JRPrintServiceExporterParameter.DISPLAY_PAGE_DIALOG, Boolean.FALSE);

exporter.setParameter(JRPrintServiceExporterParameter.DISPLAY_PRINT_DIALOG, Boolean.TRUE);






catch (Exception e)
