PrintController.OnStartPage Method

When overridden in a derived class, begins the control sequence that determines when and how to print a page of a document.

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

abstract OnStartPage : 
        document:PrintDocument * 
        e:PrintPageEventArgs -> Graphics  
override OnStartPage : 
        document:PrintDocument * 
        e:PrintPageEventArgs -> Graphics

Parameters

document
Type: System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument

A PrintDocument that represents the document currently being printed.

e
Type: System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs

A PrintPageEventArgs that contains the event data.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.Graphics
A Graphics that represents a page from a PrintDocument.

OnStartPage is called immediately before the PrintDocument raises the PrintPage event.

OnStartPrint creates the Graphics that is sent to the printer. After OnStartPrint is called, the OnStartPage 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 OnStartPage method to set how to print a page in a document. For example, you can adjust page settings separately for each page.
