So I take is support for saving the users's preferring Print Setup options is

Don: I'm sorry, but I don't see the APIs I can call for this anywhere. Print() is 
a method on nsIContentViewerFile, but there is no corresponding PrintSetup 
method. The only things I can see are in gfx/ps, which is way to low to call from

Print setup is currently platform specific.  We are using the print dialogs 
supplied by the platforms.. except for GTK which Syd duplicated a generic Linux 
dialog for PostScript.  I will support the API's which we come up with (margins, 
headers, etc, etc).

I don't see why (as I wrote in bug 11767, which is also on don's list marked 
milestone Future) there can't be a cross-platform, XPIDL-defined interface to 
the platform-specific Print Setup code.  Is that really don's job?  Don, who is 
gonna do this?  Do you need help?

When I see SVG stuff going into the tree just before the feature freeze (and 
don't get me wrong, I like SVG -- but let some hackers 
do it), while crucial, basic features are at risk, I start to get ornery.  And 
nosey!  Maybe, in absolute priority order, the cc: list of this bug should be 
helping with Print Setup and similar bugs first, then (if there's time) helping 
with SVG?

*** Bug 11767 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Ok, There seems to be alot of confusion about what this bug means. The source of 
the confusion is there are two separate dialogs used to setup printing. 

a cross-platform page setup dialog where the user specifies margins, whether or 
not to print the background etc.

a printer driver specific dialog that is provided by the printer manufacturer. 
This dialog is usually brought up using a button off the page setup dialog or it 
is displayed when the page is told to print.

Given this:
The cross-platform page setup dialog should be done in XUL and owned by either 
the XPFE or BROWSER teams.

An API specifying the page setup settings needs to be added to the 
contentViewer, PresShell or other appropriate interface in layout. This should 
owned by layout.

An abstract Interface should be created for bringing up the printer specific 
device driver. This should should live in widget, and needs to implemented on 
each platform.

So which of these parts does this bug cover? The description seems generic 
enough to cover all parts, but there are potentially three different owners for 
this problem. Thats why this bug keeps bouncing around.

I think dcone should own the problem of creating the API's for both layout and 
widget and we should file a separate bug for the creation of the XUL page setup 

Does anyone disagree with this?

That's an excellent analysis, and the bug, as filed, covers all parts. Feel free 
to break them out into separate parts.
CC'ing Syd
Don Cone is currently working on the PrinterService + the API and the 
implementation for bringing up the Native PageSetup Dialog on the Mac. He should 
be able to checkin a first pass at the PrinterService and be able to bring up 
the Native PageSetup Dialog tommorow (6/22).  This will provide no increase in 
functionality for the beta2 user. The PrinterService will hold the current print 
settings but it will have no effect on printing.

I see an nsbeta3 keyword.  Why can't the milestone remain at the next one after
nsbeta2?  Future is taken to mean (and used to mean) "not in netscape 6" or "not

Don, could you please attach your patches to get this almost ready?  Then maybe
someone not bound by pdt rules could finish it.  That's worked time and again;
attaching patches in progress to bugs is a Good Thing.  Maybe we can get this in

Comment 28

FWIW.... during the mac meeting today it was asserted that this was completely 
done,  and a patch was in hand, and that Phil had insisted that the fix not be 
checked in.  

Reading the comments above from dcone (who would have authored the bulk of this 
feature), the statement made was that this was "almost ready," and that he 
stopped working on it because it was considered a feature. (He also said that it 
"all code was ready to implement this" at an earlier point, but the last 
position statement talked about getting permission to "finish it" as well).
As I read the comments, it was an incomplete feature, that would need to be 
finished, and was instead latered.

Although this bug is currently listed as Mac System 8.5, I believe this is a XP 
feature defficiency.  I think the feature didn't make the train on any platform, 
and now we're racing to make sure the train even runs at all on any tracks 

Appology in advance to the folks that I misunderstood (either dcone above, or 
the mac folks at the meeting today)... but I'd be happy to be corrected.

I'd also note that it is very uncommon to not have a page-setup on most any 
platform... but I am curious to better understand why this issue is seemingly 
pivotal on Mac (certainly that was the sentiment expressed above).  Hopefully 
the relative importance was caught in in the mac meeting today by Michaell as 
folks prioritized critical development work needed to better the mac.

As one last comment, based on my memory of discussion of this bug... even after 
dcone finishes the infrastructure for this bug (back end work), there is a bunch  
of front end work (UI) to be done, as well as preference saving work to be tied 
in, and of course qa tests to be added for this area.   Am I mistaken about that 
memory of "what it would take to land this feature?"



Comment 29

18 years ago
I think you have a good understanding of this bug.  I have the bulk of the work 
completed communicate information between the page setup, preferences to the 
actual print job in an XP way.  Most is even checked in.. I have to hook up the 
factories to finish this.  The calling of the page setup dialog (Platform 
specific) and the filling in of the printer object would have to be done.  Also 
the printer code would have to use these setting from this object. 
Let me summarize the current state of this bug:

Printer Service (Holds the current printer settings to be accessed from Layout, 
Preferences and UI)

Hook up layout to use settings in Printer Service (i.e print background, Margins 

Create a dialog to let the user specify the settings 

Bring up platform specific Page Setup dialog - (Mac is the only platform with a 
native page setup dialog. On WIN32 and Linux the page setup dialog is created by 
the application)

Save and Load printer settings from preferences

The Mac is unique in that some of the settings that are found in the printer 
dialog (The dialog brought up just before printing) are located on the Mac's 
page setup dialog instead. Most notably, page orientation. On WIN32 page 
orientation (landscape/portrait) is on the printer dialog so it is settable in 
the current build. On the Mac we are not able to set the page orientation 
because we would need to bring up the native Mac pagesetup dialog.

As a partial solution we could implement a method on the PrintService to bring 
up the pagesetup dialog on the Mac. This would allow the user to set the page 
orientation. We would also need to create a PageSetup menu item which calls this 
Added [NEEDINFO] to status.

What is the minimal implementation for we can get away with? If we need a full 
page setup I'll have to nsbeta3- this bug.  If we can come up with a subset, 
such as just bringing up the native pagesetup dialog on the Mac, we can probably 
get that in.

I *REALLY* don't see how netscape can ship without this feature and get away
with it. In the beta's, yes. As a supposeably "finished" product, no. The press
will have a field day.

It's starting to get to the point where slipping the schedule a month will do
LESS damage then releasing netscape 6 in a still very buggy and feature missing
state. It's better to be considered "late" (which you ALREADY ARE, by idiotic
people who can't wait 5 god damn minutes for ANYTHING) then to be considered
"late AND buggy".

My $0.02.
How exactly are we expecting *any* Macintosh user to use a browser that they 
can't print MapQuest (another of our brands, by the way) Maps from?  4.x had 
quite a few bugs that could be worked around by going into Page Setup and 
changing the Print Zoom to 75% instead of 100%.  NS6 doesn't even have that, and 
quite frankly I can't print a page that is wider than a normal page.  Its about 
2.3 pages wide (horizontally) and its just cutting off whatever is to the right 
of the roght margin.  No extra pages, nothing.  The ideal thing is to put this 
page in Landscape Mode, but-guess what!-I can't!  No Page Setup to do it in!

Windows has the capacity to do this all in the print dialog, but on the Mac there 
is no other option.

Off to print with IE.

Comment 36

The more I think about it, the more it bothers me that 4.x had crappy printing on 
the mac, and that NS 6 has managed to do even worse.  I'm upgrading the severity 
to critical because I can't see any reason why anyone in their right mind would 
bother to use our product while doing research (or map searching, or e-mail, or 
whatever) only to find out they can't print a thing on it properly.  *Properly* 
being the key word here.  Yes, I can get half a page.  Great, but unless I'm 
psychic, I can't properly fill in the blanks.

I'm sitting in my cube waiting for someone to smack me upside the head.  Call me 
and I'll accomodate appointments.

Is there any low-hanging fruit here? Could we bring up only Page Setup, only on
the Mac, using the native dialog, perhaps even disabling any settings that
aren't easily supported?  Are there any printer companies (cough HP cough) that
might loan us an engineer to help with this?  It is rather pitiful that we can
prefill your spouse's mother's maiden name in forms, but can't print them. cc

Peter: Don was close to being able to bringing up the Mac native page setup 
dialog, but there's more work to be done and Don is overloaded with other bugs. 
If someone wants to pickup where he left off, that would be great.

Don, correct me if I'm wrong but his is my take on the current state of this 

Most of the infrastructure is in place to be able to bring up the Native 
PageSetup dialog on the Mac. The print service is checked in and includes a 
method to bring up the NativeDialog. The print service's interface has been 
specified in IDL so it should be accessable to JavaScript.

What remains to be done:
1. Create a Mac specific print service which implements the call to bring up the 
2. Use the settings provided by the Mac specific page setup dialog when 
3. Register the printer service
4. Write the XUL/JavaScript to access the printservice and call the method to 
bring up the Mac page setup dialog.

Not to throw another hurdle into your way on this, but if you guys are serious

I took a time today to read all the comments in this bug.  I just can not
believe PDT is blocking this from getting fixed. If it wants itself to claim a
usable browser, Mozilla needs this implemented to print the window fit into a
page.  Why is it unnecessary to implement a functionality that simply matches
NS4.5-4.7?  I can not see any point there.  If internationalization is a
potential problem, fine that can be addressed in relnotes, although I very much
doubt it matters at least in Mac, because the dialog called is in the System
extention and handled by OS.

shouldn't you use an nsCOMPtr?

Comment 67

I think since its a Singleton.. created only once and registered as a service 
for the life of the App.. it does not need to use a nsCOMPtr.
The registration keeps track of this object for the life of the application.
dcone: you've created a leak, because RegisterService adds its own ref to the
service-instance you pass in (as it has to, per the rules of XPCOM -- the caller
cannot "hand off" its own reference).  That leaves the reference added by
CreateInstance for its out parameter stuck, which means a leak.

It's a new millennium, there really is no excuse not to use nsCOMPtrs.  But you
still need to know the rules of XPCOM, or you can get burned by cycles and bad
ownership models.

Comment 85

17 years ago
nsPrintOptionsMac did simply not work, and must never have been tested. Bad 
PrStlDialog() was not called inside a PrOpen/PrClose block, so it rarely worked. 
And when it did, the watch cursor showed up over it.
Also, there was no way the print record we got from PrStlDialog() could be fed 
into the printing code.

This in-progress patch adds a 'GetNativeData' call to nsIPrintOptions, which the 
mac printing code can use to get at the print record. It also does a bunch of 
cleanup, so it larger than necessary.

  NS_IMETHOD  GetNativeData(PRInt16 aDataType, void * *_retval);

StHandleOwner seems to have tabs in it

Review-worthy gfx patch

Comment 90

17 years ago
The last patch adds Page Setup functionality for Mac OS classic and Mac OS X. It 
stores page setup settings in the preferences (as a Base64-encoded string) 
between runs, and will load the settings from prefs when nsIPrintOptions is 
instantiated for the first time (i.e. a page setup in the last session will 
affect printing in a subsequent session).

Because the code that shows the page setup dialog is separate from the printing 
code, and not in a per-window or per-document data structure, we are not able to 
use the Carbon session-based printing APIs. We have to use the more backwardly-
compatible non-session APIs instead, so I had to touch some of the Mac OS X 
printing code.

Note that you'll need the XUL patch in bug 42817 to see page setup in the UI.

Reviews please.

Verifying that page setup command is functional in the trunk OS 9 build

*Used Page setup dialog to scale print out at 50, 75, 100, 150 % out of composer
and navigator.

*Specified Landscape and portrait modes and printed page.

*Switched between printers in Page setup dialog and printed page.

Chris, when Mac branch builds are out, try these things out per Simon's

On Mac & Mac OS X:
    * Verify that Page Setup appears in every File menu that has Print.
    * Verify that Page Setup appears on Composer's Print toolbar button
      dropdown (it was there before), but not on any other Print toolbar
      dropdowns (this is just the way things were, not a deliberate design
    * Verify that Page Setup works in every location in which it appears
      (including when no windows are open). It should show the Page Setup
      dialog for the currently selected printer, and should remember
      settings from the last time you used it, even if in a previous
      session (settings are stored in prefs, hence are per-profile). Printing
      should use the last-specified Page setup options.
      Switching between printers should not cause problems; test the case
      of doing Page Setup in printer A, switching to printer B, and then
      doing a Print without a preceding Page setup. Test when no printer
      is selected (remove all printers).

    * Verify that printing on Mac OS X still works as it did before.

On Windows & Unix:
    * Verify that File menus look as they did before this change, that Print
      still works, and that Page Setup on Composer's toolbar button dropdown
      does nothing bad.

Verified on the Mac OS X build (2001-10-16-04).

* Page setup command appears in all application modules:

Nav, IM, Mail, Composer, Address Book

* Print button popup in Composer displays Page setup option and is functional.

* Page setup dialog shows previous settings 

* Printed from Composer, Nav, Mail, and IM.

Need to still test on Mac OS 9 branch...

Under Windows branch (2001-10-16-05) , Print function works from File menu and
Composer's Print button.


My linux machine has been setup for my network printer so I will need you to
check this.

Is this expected?

I tried to use scaling and orientation on the Page Setup dlg and then print. 
Looks great.

However, when I view the preferences js file (which I know most users won't do),
 for the parameter for user_pref("print.macosc.pagesetup"), I get a huge section
of characters which seem encrypted to me. 
It's not encrypted. It's just a native print record which is base64 encoded as
text so it can be put in a prefs file. Same thing as with file aliases in Mac
prefs files. I wouldn't worry about it.

What Conrad said. That's expected.
