Property Value

Type: System.Int16

The number of copies to print. The default is 1.

Exception Condition

The value of the Copies property is less than zero.

Not all printers support printing multiple copes. You can use the MaximumCopies property to determine the maximum number of copies the printer supports. If the number of copies is set higher than the maximum copies supported by the printer, only the maximum number of copies will be printed, and no exception will occur.


Some printers might not support printing more than one copy at a time.
