PrintDocument.BeginPrint Event

Occurs when the Print method is called and before the first page of the document prints.

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

public event PrintEventHandler BeginPrint
/** @event */
public void add_BeginPrint (PrintEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_BeginPrint (PrintEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

Typically, you handle the BeginPrint event to initialize fonts, file streams, and other resources used during the printing process.

To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the PrintEventHandler delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs. For more information about handling events with delegates, see Events and Delegates.
