Controls how a document is printed, when printing from a Windows Forms application.
Assembly: System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|OnEndPage||When overridden in a derived class, completes the control sequence that determines when and how to print a page of a document.|
|OnEndPrint||When overridden in a derived class, completes the control sequence that determines when and how to print a document.|
|OnStartPage||When overridden in a derived class, begins the control sequence that determines when and how to print a page of a document.|
|OnStartPrint||When overridden in a derived class, begins the control sequence that determines when and how to print a document.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
When implemented in a derived class, controls how a PrintDocument is printed. PrintDocument.Print invokes the print controller's OnStartPrint, OnEndPrint, OnStartPage, and OnEndPage methods, which in turn tell the printer how to print the document. Print preview uses a specialized . For an example of a print controller that is specialized for print preview, see the PreviewPrintController.
is used by PrintDocument, and not typically used directly.
The .NET Framework includes three print controllers that are derived from that help accomplish common tasks. The StandardPrintController prints a document to a printer. The PreviewPrintController generates a preview of what the document will look like when printed and is used by the PrintPreviewControl and PrintPreviewDialog classes. The PrintControllerWithStatusDialog provides a printing status dialog during the printing process.
