java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.print.attribute.EnumSyntax
      extended by javax.print.attribute.standard.Sides
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, DocAttribute, PrintJobAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute

public final class Sides
extends EnumSyntax
implements DocAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute, PrintJobAttribute

Class Sides is a printing attribute class, an enumeration, that specifies how print-stream pages are to be imposed upon the sides of an instance of a selected medium, i.e., an impression.

The effect of a Sides attribute on a multidoc print job (a job with multiple documents) depends on whether all the docs have the same sides values specified or whether different docs have different sides values specified, and on the (perhaps defaulted) value of the MultipleDocumentHandling attribute.

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.

Field Detail

ONE_SIDED

public static final Sides ONE_SIDED
Imposes each consecutive print-stream page upon the same side of consecutive media sheets.


TWO_SIDED_LONG_EDGE

public static final Sides TWO_SIDED_LONG_EDGE
Imposes each consecutive pair of print-stream pages upon front and back sides of consecutive media sheets, such that the orientation of each pair of print-stream pages on the medium would be correct for the reader as if for binding on the long edge. This imposition is also known as "duplex" (see DUPLEX).


TWO_SIDED_SHORT_EDGE

public static final Sides TWO_SIDED_SHORT_EDGE
Imposes each consecutive pair of print-stream pages upon front and back sides of consecutive media sheets, such that the orientation of each pair of print-stream pages on the medium would be correct for the reader as if for binding on the short edge. This imposition is also known as "tumble" (see TUMBLE).


DUPLEX

public static final Sides DUPLEX
An alias for "two sided long edge" (see TWO_SIDED_LONG_EDGE).


TUMBLE

public static final Sides TUMBLE
An alias for "two sided short edge" (see TWO_SIDED_SHORT_EDGE).

Constructor Detail

Sides

protected Sides(int value)
Construct a new sides enumeration value with the given integer value.

Parameters:
value - Integer value.
Method Detail

getStringTable

protected String[] getStringTable()
Returns the string table for class Sides.

Overrides:
getStringTable in class EnumSyntax
Returns:
the string table

getEnumValueTable

protected EnumSyntax[] getEnumValueTable()

Overrides:
getEnumValueTable in class EnumSyntax

For class Sides, the category is class Sides itself.

Specified by:
getCategory in interface Attribute
Returns:
Printing attribute class (category), an instance of class java.lang.Class.

getName

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

For class Sides, the category name is "sides".

Specified by:
getName in interface Attribute
Returns:
Attribute category name.
