PrintDocument.OnBeginPrint Method

Raises the BeginPrint event. It is called after the Print method is called and before the first page of the document prints.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnBeginPrint( _
   ByVal e As PrintEventArgs _
protected virtual void OnBeginPrint(
 PrintEventArgs e
protected: virtual void OnBeginPrint(
 PrintEventArgs* e
protected function OnBeginPrint(
   e : PrintEventArgs


A PrintEventArgs that contains the event data.


The OnBeginPrint method allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

When a derived class calls the OnBeginPrint method, it raises the BeginPrint event by invoking the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

Notes to Inheritors:  When overriding OnBeginPrint in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnBeginPrint method so that registered delegates receive the event. This method is a good place for initialization.
