Introduction to QPrintDialog

QPrintDialog is dialog box that allows user to select printer, configure printing options and initiate printing of document. when the user closes the dialog, QPrintDialog provides the selected printer and printing options to your application.

This is simple example that demonstrates how to use QPrintDialog in PySide6:

In this example we have create new QTextEdit widget and set it as the central widget of our main window. we also create Print action that is added to the File menu and connect it to  custom print() function.

When user clicks the Print action, print() creates new QPrintDialog instance and displays it to the user. if the user accepts the dialog, the QTextEdit.print() method is called with the selected printer, which initiates the printing of the document.



Run the complete code and this will be the result.
