Modifying Print Dialogs

About the author

Greg Wilson is a Toronto area Macintosh consultant. He has been programming the Macintosh since 1985. His first article for MacTutor shows how to add Filter Routines and disable items in Print Dialogs.

The Problem

I programmed myself into a hole the other day. I was (am, seem to forever be) writing a game which can be played by several people over the network. Every time I passed through my main event loop I checked to see if there were any network messages to be processed. Unfortunately, there was a problem if the user selected a menu command which brought up a modal dialog, for example, when selecting the “About ” menu item. I had used the Alert function to handle the modal dialog like this:

/* 1*/

void ShowAboutMeDialog(void)
{
 short  itemHit;
 itemHit = Alert(rAboutAlert, nil);
 } /* ShowAboutMeDialog */

The program would sit on the line

/* 2 */

itemHit = Alert(rAboutAlert, nil);

This handles the window until the user hit an item, and so my main event loop network message check wouldn’t get executed and messages could be missed. I had to ensure that network messages weren’t missed (or timed out) while the user was sitting in a modal dialog.

The solution was to use a “Filter Proc” when calling ModalDialog directly, or indirectly through Alert, SFGetFile, etc which pass the FilterProc to ModalDialog. This Filter Proc would get called every time ModalDialog detected an event. My filter simply checked to see if there were any messages, processed them and then let ModalDialog handle the event in the usual way. Similar code has been seen in MacTutor numerous times in the past, my version (Net_filter) is shown in the sample code which follows the article. It gets invoked by changing the troublesome line to:

/* 3 */

itemHit = Alert(rAboutAlert, &Net_filter);

Pride Goeth

Before I got injured patting myself on the back, it became obvious that this would not work for Print Dialogs. There are two routines to conduct the modal print dialogs. The PrJobDialog and PrStlDialog functions conduct modal dialogs for defining the characteristics of the Print Job (quality, copies, page range, etc ) and the Page Setup (paper orientation, paper size etc) respectively. Neither of these accept a Filter Proc function. I could see no easy way around this, so I did the logical thing. I decided to leave it for later and hope the problem went away.

Of course things went from bad to worse. The BitMaps that I painstaking added to the display and printing didn’t print on an ImageWriter when the user selected Draft Mode. This was because Draft Mode is designed to just print the characters in the native character set of the device. BitMaps aren’t supported. PrGeneral was supposed to allow for printing of draft mode BitMaps under certain restrictions, but it seemed like it wouldn’t allow me to do what I needed. I wanted to disable the Draft Mode radio button; that way the user could never select Draft Mode printing, and so my BitMaps would always print. I knew from my experience, being unable to get a Filter Proc into these dialogs, that there was no way to patch a hook into these routines. Yet there must be some way to get at the dialogs since several commercial applications were disabling the button, and others were adding items to the dialogs. I now had two problems, so some action was required.

Salvation came in the form of Tech Note #95. This little beauty was built to explain how to add items to the Printing Manager’s dialogs. But more importantly for me, it showed the format of the data structures and described the procedures and functions required by PrStlDialog and PrJobDialog used to create and display the dialog information.

Inside PrJobDialog

When the PrJobDialog is called, it really only calls another function like this:

/* 4 */

ok = PrDlgMain(PrDlgStrctHndl,&PrJobinit);

(PrStlDialog operates similarly, except PrStlInit is used in the call to PrDlgMain. From now on I’ll just refer to PrJobDialog since that’s where Draft mode is used.)

PrDlgMain actually does all the work, and the first thing it does is call the PrJobInit routine. PrJobInit sets up a dialog record and puts it into a data structure. The data structure is defined in Printing.h like this:

/* 5 */

struct TPrDlg {
DialogRecord Dlg;
ModalFilterProcPtr pFltrProc;
PItemProcPtr pItemProc; 
THPrint hPrintUsr;
Boolean fDoIt;
Boolean fDone;
long lUser1;
long lUser2;
long lUser3;
long lUser4;
/*Plus more stuff needed by the particular printing dialog.*/
};

typedef struct TPrDlg TPrDlg;
typedef TPrDlg *TPPrDlg;

typedef pascal TPPrDlg (*PDlgInitProcPtr)(THPrint hPrint);

Then the PrJobInit function returns a pointer of type TPPrDlg which points to this structure. PrDlgMain then calls ShowWindow, passing the DialogRecord window (Dlg), and finally calls ModalDialog (passing, luckily enough, the ModalFilterProcPtr).

So, if I could get at this TPrDlg record, I could change the ModalFilterProcPtr and disable the Draft mode item in the DialogRecord window. Two bugs fixed for the price of one!

Today, On “How To Do It ”

As luck would have it, Tech Note #95 even showed how to get access to this TPrDlg record. Instead of using the PrJobDialog routine, I call PrDlgMain myself, substituting my own init routine in the call so it looks like this:

/* 6 */

if (!PrDlgMain(hPrintRec,&MyJobDlgInit))
 /* there was an error */

My init routine, MyJobDlgInit, calls the original init routine, PrJobInit, lets it set everything up, then modifies what we need.

/* 7 */

/* call PrJobInit to get pointer to the invisible job dialog */
PrtJobDialog = PrJobInit(hPrintRec);
if (PrError() != noErr)
 return nil;

/* set up the filter function */
PrtJobDialog->pFltrProc = (ModalFilterProcPtr)&Net_filter;
 
/* disable the draft mode now */
DisableDraftMode(PrtJobDialog);

The routine DisableDraftMode is responsible for disabling the Draft Mode radio button of the print dialog record pointed to by PrtJobDialog. DisableDraftMode determines how many items in the list via ItemList, then loops for this number so each item can be checked. GetDitem is used to determine what type of item it is.

Type Checking

Types can have the high bit set if they are disabled, so I dropped this bit by ANDing the type with 7F (0111111). Radio buttons are controls, so the type check is made for ctrlItem + radCtrl (Control item and Radio Button Control).

The title is then found via the lowercase version of getctitle. I did it like this so that a C string is returned as opposed to Pascal format. By looping and checking for “Draft” as the title of the control, we aren’t relying on the Draft item being a certain item number in the Dialog. After all, Tech Note #95 has warned that “If you depend on the Draft button being a particular number and we change the Draft button’s item number, your program may not work”. When coding this for a real application, I would put the “Draft” string in the resource file to make localization easier.

Once the draft item is found, it is unselected by SetCtlValue and finally disabled by passing a value of 255 to HiliteControl.

Having disabled and possibly unselected the Draft item, the dialog is cleaned up by making sure that at least one of the buttons is selected. The item numbers of the Best and Faster modes are saved, so we try and turn one of these on.

SoapBox Derby

I should point out that there is a difference between a disabled item and an inactive control. If the item is disabled (and we could disable it by SetDItem) it cannot be selected. However, it is not drawn in dimmed text. The item looks like it can be clicked on, and if the user clicks on it, the radio button turns on then off right away. This means they might try again and again and start to think something is wrong with the mouse etc . When a control is set to inactive via HiLiteControl, it cannot be selected and IS dimmed. This gives feedback to the user and says “You can’t pick this, it isn’t a valid option right now”. Furthermore, the consistency of the Mac interface is preserved and the world is saved for peace, democracy and future generations. End of soapbox.

Adding Items to the ItemList

In fact, my code is a lot simpler to write than Tech Note #95’s. The Tech Note shows how to add items to the Dialog. The field Items in the Dialog Record contains a handle to a list of items. This list is documented briefly in Inside Macintosh, but the sample code in Tech Note #95 gives a more complete picture. The ItemList itself contains an item, dlgmaxindex, which tells the number of Items in the list (minus 1). Following dlgmaxindex is each of the DITLs. Each of these DITLs contains a Handle to the item, it’s rect, type and datalength followed by datalength bytes of variable data. There is no Trap to add a DITL to a DialogRecord’s ItemList and since each DITL is a variable length field within the Item List, the AppendDITL routine must do some fancy pointer manipulation. We will only look at and change the existing DITL’s so we can use the existing Dialog and Control Manager routines, but we will use the ItemList definition to get the variable. I’ve kept the ItemList structure and other definitions as in Tech Note #95 in case you wish to expand the sample to include a C version of the AppendDITL routine.

Example Source

The C source code which follows is composed of two main modules. The NoDraft.c source is the part of the basic boilerplate shell that I use. It originated on some developer CD somewhere and has been stripped down to the basics to conserve trees. It really just sets up a window and menubar then waits for the user to select “Print ”. The important stuff all happens in the Dialogs.c module. This module contains the DisableDraftMode, and MyJobDlgInit, as well as the routines needed to setup the print dialogs, the filter function, etc.

Summary

The example which follows shows how to include a filter function and how to disable the Draft Mode button on a print dialog. If you need to add items to a dialog, Tech Note #95 shows you how.
