PaperSize Class

Specifies the size of a piece of paper.

Namespace: System.Drawing.Printing
Assembly: System.Drawing (in system.drawing.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
public class PaperSize
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public class PaperSize
SerializableAttribute 
public class PaperSize
Not applicable.

This class is used by the PrinterSettings.PaperSizes and PageSettings.PaperSize properties to get the paper sizes that are available on the printer and to set the paper size for a page, respectively.

You can use the PaperSize constructor to specify a custom paper size. The Width and Height property values can be set only for custom PaperSize objects.

For more information about printing, see the System.Drawing.Printing namespace overview.

The following code example populates the comboPaperSize combo box with the printer's supported paper sizes. In addition, a custom paper size is created and added to the combo box. The PaperName is identified as the property that will provide the display string for the item being added through the DisplayMember property of the combo box. The example assumes that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc exists and that the specific combo box exists.

// Add list of supported paper sizes found on the printer. 
// The DisplayMember property is used to identify the property that will provide the display string.
comboPaperSize.DisplayMember = "PaperName";

PaperSize pkSize;
for (int i = 0; i < printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSizes.Count; i++){
    pkSize = printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSizes[i];
    comboPaperSize.Items.Add(pkSize);
}

// Create a PaperSize and specify the custom paper size through the constructor and add to combobox.
PaperSize pkCustomSize1 = new PaperSize("First custom size", 100, 200);

comboPaperSize.Items.Add(pkCustomSize1);


// Add list of supported paper sizes found on the printer. 
// The DisplayMember property is used to identify the property that 
// will provide the display string.
comboPaperSize.set_DisplayMember("PaperName");

PaperSize pkSize;
for (int i = 0; i < printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_PaperSizes().
    get_Count(); i++) {
    pkSize = printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_PaperSizes().
        get_Item(i);
    comboPaperSize.get_Items().Add(pkSize);
}
// Create a PaperSize and specify the custom paper size through 
// the constructor and add to combobox.
PaperSize pkCustomSize1 = new PaperSize("First custom size", 100, 200);

comboPaperSize.get_Items().Add(pkCustomSize1);
