PrinterSettings.PaperSourceCollection Class

Contains a collection of PaperSource objects.

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

public class PaperSourceCollection : ICollection, IEnumerable
public class PaperSourceCollection implements ICollection, IEnumerable
public class PaperSourceCollection implements ICollection, IEnumerable
Not applicable.

The PrinterSettings.PaperSourceCollection contains PaperSource instances that represents the paper source trays through the PaperSource.Kind property, which contains one of the PaperSourceKind values.

Typically, you set a page's paper source through the PageSettings.PaperSource property to a valid PaperSource instance available through the PaperSources collection.

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);
}
