This class implements a PrintController and adds a status dialog box. A print controller specifies how a PrintDocument is printed.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the PrintControllerWithStatusDialog class, see the PrintControllerWithStatusDialog constructor.

For more information about printing with Windows Forms, see the System.Drawing.Printing namespace overview. If you want to print from a Windows Presentation Foundation application, see the System.Printing namespace.

The following code example shows how to create a new PrintController and assign it to the PrintController property. The example assumes that you have added the System.Drawing.Printing namespace to the class and that you have created a new instance of a PrintDocument as myDocumentPrinter.

 void myPrint() {
    if (useMyPrintController==true) {
       myDocumentPrinter.PrintController = new myControllerImplementation();     
       if (wantsStatusDialog==true) {
          myDocumentPrinter.PrintController =
            new PrintControllerWithStatusDialog(myDocumentPrinter.PrintController);
       }
    }
    myDocumentPrinter.Print();
 }
