Raises the BeginPrint event. It is called after the Print method is called and before the first page of the document prints.

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

Protected Overridable Sub OnBeginPrint (
	e As PrintEventArgs
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.Drawing.Printing.PrintEventArgs

A PrintEventArgs that contains the event data.

The OnBeginPrint method allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

When a derived class calls the OnBeginPrint method, it raises the BeginPrint event by invoking the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnBeginPrint in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnBeginPrint method so that registered delegates receive the event. This method is a good place for initialization.
