Typically, to use the print preview feature, you create an instance of a PrintPreviewControl or PrintPreviewDialog class and set its Document property. The PreviewPrintController is used by the PrintPreviewControl and PrintPreviewDialog classes, though you can use the PreviewPrintController when managing the display of your own print preview window.

When used with a PrintPreviewControl or PrintPreviewDialog, PreviewPrintController sets the PrintController of the associated Document to a PrintControllerWithStatusDialog, performs the print preview, and sets the PrintController back to the original value.

OnStartPrint creates the Graphics that is displayed during the print preview. After OnStartPrint is called, the OnStartPage method sets the Graphics to a graphic of a single page. The OnEndPage method clears the Graphics, while the OnEndPrint method deallocates the object.
