PaperSource Class

Specifies the paper tray from which the printer gets paper.

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

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

This class is used by PrinterSettings.PaperSources and PageSettings.PaperSource properties to get the paper source trays that are available on the printer and to set the paper source for a page, respectively.

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

The following code example populates the comboPaperSource combo box with the printer's supported paper sources. The SourceName is identified as the property that provides the display string for the item being added through the DisplayMember property of the combo box. The example requires that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc exists and that the specific combo box exists.

// Add list of paper sources found on the printer to the combo box.
// The DisplayMember property is used to identify the property that will provide the display string.
comboPaperSource.DisplayMember="SourceName";

PaperSource pkSource;
for (int i = 0; i < printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSources.Count; i++){
    pkSource = printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSources[i];
    comboPaperSource.Items.Add(pkSource);
}

// Add list of paper sources found on the printer to the combo box.
// The DisplayMember property is used to identify the property that
// will provide the display string.
comboPaperSource.set_DisplayMember("SourceName");

PaperSource pkSource;
for (int i = 0; i < printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_PaperSources().
    get_Count(); i++) {
    pkSource = printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_PaperSources().
        get_Item(i);
    comboPaperSource.get_Items().Add(pkSource);
}
