PaperSize Constructor (String, Int32, Int32)


Initializes a new instance of the PaperSize class.

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

public PaperSize(
	string name,
	int width,
	int height


Type: System.String

The name of the paper.

Type: System.Int32

The width of the paper, in hundredths of an inch.

Type: System.Int32

The height of the paper, in hundredths of an inch.

A PaperSize created with this constructor always has its Kind property set to Custom. The Width and Height property values can be set only for custom PaperSize objects.

The following code example populates the comboPaperSize combo box with the printer's supported paper sizes. In addition, a custom paper size is created and added to the combo box. The PaperName is identified as the property that will provide the display string for the item being added through the DisplayMember property of the combo box. The example assumes that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc exists and that the specific combo box exists.

// Add list of supported paper sizes found on the printer. 
// The DisplayMember property is used to identify the property that will provide the display string.
comboPaperSize.DisplayMember = "PaperName";

PaperSize pkSize;
for (int i = 0; i < printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSizes.Count; i++){
    pkSize = printDoc.PrinterSettings.PaperSizes[i];

// Create a PaperSize and specify the custom paper size through the constructor and add to combobox.
PaperSize pkCustomSize1 = new PaperSize("First custom size", 100, 200);
