PrintDocument.OnPrintPage Method

Raises the PrintPage event. It is called before a page prints.

[Visual Basic]
Protected Overridable Sub OnPrintPage( _
   ByVal e As PrintPageEventArgs _
protected virtual void OnPrintPage(
 PrintPageEventArgs e
protected: virtual void OnPrintPage(
 PrintPageEventArgs* e
protected function OnPrintPage(
   e : PrintPageEventArgs


A PrintPageEventArgs that contains the event data.


The OnPrintPage 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 OnPrintPage method, it raises the PrintPage event by invoking the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

Notes to Inheritors:  When overriding OnPrintPage in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnPrintPage method so that registered delegates receive the event.
