VisualsToXpsDocument Class

Provides methods for writing Visual objects to XML Paper Specification (XPS) documents or to a print queue in batch mode. 

Namespace:  System.Windows.Xps
Assembly:  System.Printing (in System.Printing.dll)

public class VisualsToXpsDocument : SerializerWriterCollator

Because this class has no constructor, use the CreateVisualsCollator method to create an instance.

The VisualsToXpsDocument writes to the same target XpsDocument or PrintQueue as the XpsDocumentWriter that creates the VisualsToXpsDocument.

Each Visual becomes a page in the document.

The following example shows how to create a visuals collator and use it to write to an XML Paper Specification (XPS) document.

private void SaveVisuals(XpsDocumentWriter xpsdw, List<Visual> vc)
{
    // Setup for writing multiple visuals
    VisualsToXpsDocument vToXpsD = (VisualsToXpsDocument)xpsdw.CreateVisualsCollator();

    // Iterate through all visuals in the collection 
    foreach (Visual v in vc)
    {
        vToXpsD.Write(v);   //Write each visual to single page
    }

    // End writing multiple visuals
    vToXpsD.EndBatchWrite();
}
