WebBrowser.ShowPrintPreviewDialog Method

Opens the Internet Explorer Print Preview dialog box.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public void ShowPrintPreviewDialog()

You can use this method to implement a Print Preview menu item similar to the one on the Internet Explorer File menu. This method displays the Print Preview dialog box, letting users see how the current document will appear if it is printed. To let your users specify page settings prior to printing, use the ShowPageSetupDialog method. To print the current document, use the Print method or the ShowPrintDialog method.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowPrintPreviewDialog method to implement a Print Preview menu option similar to the one on the Internet Explorer File menu. This example requires that your form contains a menu with a menu item called MenuItemFilePrintPreview.

For the complete code example, see How to: Add Web Browser Capabilities to a Windows Forms Application.

// Displays the Print Preview dialog box. 
private void printPreviewToolStripMenuItem_Click(
    object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    webBrowser1.ShowPrintPreviewDialog();
}
