I have a map viewer that was developed using the ArcGIS Runtime Java SDK. I am trying to make a print button and it works with one issue. I can't seem to figure out how to make it fit on one page.

    private void printMap() {

    Paper paper = new Paper();

    // ...set up the paper options...
    PrinterJob printJob1 = PrinterJob.getPrinterJob(); 
    PageFormat pageFormat = new PageFormat();
    HashPrintRequestAttributeSet set = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();  

      if (printJob1.printDialog(set)) {
            try {printJob1.print(set);}
            catch (PrinterException exc) {
               // System.out.println(exc);

     //set up page format [DEFAULT] options and pass the paper settings through

    // set page format for the map to print

    try {
       // send job to printer!

       // new PrintMe().print(YourJTextComponent);

    } catch (PrinterException e) {
       // handle the exception


I'm using Eclipse Kepler SR1, resolution is 1920x1080. Any ideas or suggestions?

This is how it prints enter image description here

got it. What I did was convert the map into a png and then printed it.

I used this as a reference to convert the map into a image.
