You can specify several printer settings through the property. For example, use the PrinterSettings.Copies property to specify the number of copies you want to print, the PrinterSettings.PrinterName property to specify the printer to use, and the PrinterSettings.PrintRange property to specify the range of pages you want to print.
The following code example prints a document on the specified printer. The example makes three assumptions: that a variable names filePath has been set to the path of the file to print; that a method named pd_PrintPage, which handles the PrintPage event, has been defined; and that a variable named printer has been set to the printer's name.
