Printer.TwipsPerPixelX Property

Gets a value indicating the number of twips per pixel for an object measured horizontally.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)

public float TwipsPerPixelX { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Single
Returns a Single.

.NET Framework routines generally require measurements in pixels. You can use these properties to convert measurements quickly without changing the ScaleMode property setting of the Printer object.

NoteNote:

Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.

The following example demonstrates how to set the TwipsPerPixelX and TwipsPerPixelY properties.

Dim Printer As New Printer
Dim vertical As Single
Dim horizontal As Single
horizontal = Printer.TwipsPerPixelX
vertical = Printer.TwipsPerPixelY
Printer.Print(CStr(vertical) & " by " & CStr(horizontal))
Printer.EndDoc()
