I want to write the simple program where I don't want to show the
print dialog box. I am trying to hide it, but don't have any
proper idea how to disable or hide the print dialog.
This is the program where i want to print the
document without prompting user to the print dialog.
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Font;
import java.awt.Graphics;
import java.awt.Graphics2D;
import java.awt.print.PageFormat;
import java.awt.print.Printable;
import java.awt.print.PrinterException;
import java.awt.print.PrinterJob;

public class PrintableDemo1 implements Printable {

    public int print( Graphics g, PageFormat pf, int pageIndex ) {

        if (pageIndex != 0)
            return NO_SUCH_PAGE;
        Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g;
        g2.setFont( new Font( "Serif", Font.PLAIN, 36 ) );
        g2.setPaint( );
        g2.drawString( "Welcome to Java!", 144, 144 );
        return PAGE_EXISTS;

    public static void main( String[] args ) {

        PrinterJob pj = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob();
        pj.setPrintable( new PrintableDemo1() );
        if (pj.printDialog()) {
            try {
            } catch (PrinterException e) {
                System.out.println( e );
