Class Chromaticity

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

public final class Chromaticity extends EnumSyntax implements DocAttribute, PrintRequestAttribute, PrintJobAttribute
Class Chromaticity is a printing attribute class, an enumeration, that specifies monochrome or color printing. This is used by a print client to specify how the print data should be generated or processed. It is not descriptive of the color capabilities of the device. Query the service's ColorSupported attribute to determine if the device can be verified to support color printing.

The table below shows the effects of specifying a Chromaticity attribute of MONOCHROME or COLOR for a monochrome or color document.
