QueryPageSettingsEventArgs Class

Provides data for the QueryPageSettings event.

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

public class QueryPageSettingsEventArgs : PrintEventArgs
public class QueryPageSettingsEventArgs extends PrintEventArgs
public class QueryPageSettingsEventArgs extends PrintEventArgs
Not applicable.

It is possible to print each page of a document using different page settings. You set page settings by modifying individual properties of the PageSettings property or by setting the property to a PageSettings. The print job can also be canceled by setting the Cancel property to true.

The following code example prints a document with the first page in color, if the printer supports it. The example assumes that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc has been created, and the PrintPage and QueryPageSettings events are handled.

Use the System.Drawing and System.Drawing.Printing namespaces for this example.


private void MyButtonPrint_OnClick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    
    // Set the printer name and ensure it is valid. If not, provide a message to the user.
    printDoc.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = "\\mynetworkprinter";

    if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.IsValid) {
    
        // If the printer supports printing in color, then override the printer's default behavior.
        if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.SupportsColor) {

            // Set the page default's to not print in color.
            printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.Color = false;
        }

        // Provide a friendly name, set the page number, and print the document.
        printDoc.DocumentName = "My Presentation";
        currentPageNumber = 1;
        printDoc.Print();
    }
    else {
        MessageBox.Show("Printer is not valid");
    }
}

private void MyPrintQueryPageSettingsEvent(object sender, QueryPageSettingsEventArgs e)
{
    // Determines if the printer supports printing in color.
    if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.SupportsColor) {

        // If the printer supports color printing, use color.
        if (currentPageNumber == 1 ) {

            e.PageSettings.Color = true;
        }

    }    
}

private void myButtonPrint_OnClick(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Set the printer name and ensure it is valid. If not,
    // provide a message to the user.
    printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().set_PrinterName("\\mynetworkprinter");

    if (printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_IsValid()) {
        // If the printer supports printing in color, then 
        // override the printer's default behavior.
        if (printDoc.get_PrinterSettings().get_SupportsColor()) {
            // Set the page default's to not print in color.
            printDoc.get_DefaultPageSettings().set_Color(false);
        }
        // Provide a friendly name, set the page number, and print
        // the document.
        printDoc.set_DocumentName("My Presentation");
        currentPageNumber = 1;
        printDoc.Print();
    }
    else {
        MessageBox.Show("Printer is not valid");
    }
