public virtual Graphics OnStartPage( PrintDocument document, PrintPageEventArgs e )
- Type: System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument
A PrintDocument that represents the document currently being printed.
OnStartPrint creates the Graphics that is sent to the printer. After OnStartPrint is called, the method sets the Graphics to a graphic of a single page. The OnEndPage method clears the Graphics, while the OnEndPrint method deallocates the object.
Use the method to set how to print a page in a document. For example, you can adjust page settings separately for each page.
