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

member DocumentName : string with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.String

The document name to display while printing the document. The default is "document".

The DocumentName property does not specify the file to print. Rather, you specify the output to print by handling the PrintPage event. For an example, see the PrintDocument class overview.

The following code example prints a document with the first page in color, if the printer supports it, and sets the DocumentName to a user-friendly name. The example requires that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc has been created, and the PrintPage and QueryPageSettings events are handled.

Use the System.Drawing and System.Drawing.Printing namespaces for this example.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
