The PrintDialogOptions type is a typedef for QFlags<PrintDialogOption>. It stores an OR combination of PrintDialogOption values.

enum QAbstractPrintDialog::PrintRange

Used to specify the print range selection option.

Constant Value Description
QAbstractPrintDialog::AllPages 0 All pages should be printed.
QAbstractPrintDialog::Selection 1 Only the selection should be printed.
