abstract public class: Media [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    PrintJobAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute, DocAttribute, Cloneable, Serializable

Direct Known Subclasses:
    MediaTray, MediaSizeName, MediaName

Class Media is a printing attribute class that specifies the medium on which to print.

Media may be specified in different ways.

Each of these corresponds to the IPP "media" attribute. The current API does not support describing media by characteristics (eg colour, opacity). This may be supported in a later revision of the specification.

A Media object is constructed with a value which represents one of the ways in which the Media attribute can be specified.

IPP Compatibility: The category name returned by getName() is the IPP attribute name. The enumeration's integer value is the IPP enum value. The toString() method returns the IPP string representation of the attribute value.

Method from javax.print.attribute.standard.Media Detail:
 public boolean equals(Object object) 
    Returns whether this media attribute is equivalent to the passed in object. To be equivalent, all of the following conditions must be true:
    1. object is not null.
    2. object is of the same subclass of Media as this object.
    3. The values are equal.
 public final Class<Attribute> getCategory() 
    Get the printing attribute class which is to be used as the "category" for this printing attribute value.

    For class Media and any vendor-defined subclasses, the category is class Media itself.

 public final String getName() 
    Get the name of the category of which this attribute value is an instance.

    For class Media and any vendor-defined subclasses, the category name is "media".
