I would like to make a button which prints something. I would like to use a printer icon on the button, if possible. Is such an icon or symbol present and usable in Mathematica 10+ ?

  • $\begingroup$ The button will actually print on screen some settings. So I just want a small button with some "printer" icon. A label will explain the exact purpose of the button $\endgroup$

There are quite a few icons available through Entity:

Entity["Icon", "Printer"]["Image"]

enter image description here

I was unable to find one after a good amount of spelunking. So instead, I grabbed a "Print" icon from the Microsoft Visual Studio image library and imported it into Mathematica. Here is a snippet to get it:

printIcon = Uncompress["1:eJxTTMoPSmNhYGAoZgUSnrmJ6alpTCAuB5AISix3LCpKrAwWAHJC84oz0/NSUzzzSlLTU4sskpiBggJQDDLh////VMHfvn37TwrGpt/JyYkojE8/IXuprR+bHDH60cXIwehmItOk6qfU/sGkH1/YE1JHSD++dEyMX7ClPVLzELXyLAgHgwoBp8oSaAEC4gWV5qQWcwEZzvk5+UXBBYnJqcGgYiPI3QlNEQ+o9AGWLEU5qYllmXnpYJmQotJUAMRE97s="]

This should yield the icon icon


If, like me, you prefer the old-style circa Windows 3.1 icons, this one is from Visual Basic 4:

printIcon = Uncompress["1:eJxTTMoPSmNhYGAoZgUSnrmJ6alpTCAuB5AISix3LCpKrAwWAHJC84oz0/NSUzzzSlLTU4sskpiBggJQDGIfoAww4AZYFf/HAfCoRzMWv2KqGI7pBYKGo5H4gwVNGcEQJtJkTJfjMr8BBrBagake6EsIQjaWJCchm4zfy1idQaR/SQXA6AsGZSOnyhJoBgLxgkpzUou5gAzn/Jz8ouCCxOTUYFBWCXJ3QlPEA2SAclZRTmpiWWZeOlgmpKg0FQCbVZSm"]

which yields the icon icon

Here is a larger version:

printIcon = Uncompress["1:eJxTTMoPSmNhYGAoZgUSnrmJ6alpTCAuB5AISix3LCpKrAwWAHJC84oz0/NSUzzzSlLTU4sskpiBguJALAHEIPYBGgMG4gAx5vwnBAiaQ4whxJuDyy/0dAzxhhBpDh4fYcpS7hisRpEaMlgZZABkvcimEQ/QXEIw2PGbQ6F30PxFiXsOoIYGMeZgdcABbEGE3xxgPMMRpjnERxYec5BNoDCccXmWSIDLL2SYg0sLGZ6iBQgGVV9OlSXQigvECyrNSS3mAjKc83Pyi4ILEpNTg0FVVJC7E5oiHiADVKMV5aQmlmXmpYNlQopKUwEGKsJz"]

which yields the icon icon
