Property Value

The PrinterSettings to modify when the user clicks the Printer button. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following code example demonstrates the PageSetupDialog using the PageSettings, PrinterSettings, and ShowNetwork properties. To run this example, place it in a form containing a Button named Button1, a ListBox named ListBox1, and a PageSetupDialog named PageSetupDialog1. Ensure the button's click event is connected to the event-handling method in this example.


//This method displays a PageSetupDialog object. If the
// user clicks OK in the dialog, selected results of
// the dialog are displayed in ListBox1.
private void Button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    // Initialize the dialog's PrinterSettings property to hold user
    // defined printer settings.
    PageSetupDialog1.PageSettings = 
        new System.Drawing.Printing.PageSettings();

    // Initialize dialog's PrinterSettings property to hold user
    // set printer settings.
    PageSetupDialog1.PrinterSettings = 
        new System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings();

    //Do not show the network in the printer dialog.
    PageSetupDialog1.ShowNetwork = false;

    //Show the dialog storing the result.
    DialogResult result = PageSetupDialog1.ShowDialog();

    // If the result is OK, display selected settings in
    // ListBox1. These values can be used when printing the
    // document.
    if ( result == DialogResult.OK)
    {
        object[] results = new object[]{ 
            PageSetupDialog1.PageSettings.Margins, 
            PageSetupDialog1.PageSettings.PaperSize, 
            PageSetupDialog1.PageSettings.Landscape, 
            PageSetupDialog1.PrinterSettings.PrinterName, 
            PageSetupDialog1.PrinterSettings.PrintRange};
        ListBox1.Items.AddRange(results);
    }
}

//This method displays a PageSetupDialog object. If the
// user clicks OK in the dialog, selected results of
// the dialog are displayed in ListBox1.
private void button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Initialize the dialog's PrinterSettings property to hold user
    // defined printer settings.
    pageSetupDialog1.set_PageSettings(
        new System.Drawing.Printing.PageSettings());
    // Initialize dialog's PrinterSettings property to hold user
    // set printer settings.
    pageSetupDialog1.set_PrinterSettings(
        new System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings());
    //Do not show the network in the printer dialog.
    pageSetupDialog1.set_ShowNetwork(false);
    //Show the dialog storing the result.
    DialogResult result = pageSetupDialog1.ShowDialog();
    // If the result is OK, display selected settings in
    // ListBox1. These values can be used when printing the
    // document.
    if (result.Equals(get_DialogResult().OK)) {
        Object results[] = new Object[] {
            pageSetupDialog1.get_PageSettings().get_Margins(),
            pageSetupDialog1.get_PageSettings().get_PaperSize(),
            ((System.Boolean)pageSetupDialog1.get_PageSettings().
            get_Landscape()),
            pageSetupDialog1.get_PrinterSettings().get_PrinterName(),
            pageSetupDialog1.get_PrinterSettings().get_PrintRange()};
        listBox1.get_Items().AddRange(results);
    }
