QueryPageSettingsEventArgs.PageSettings Property

Gets or sets the page settings for the page to be printed.

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

public PageSettings PageSettings { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Printing.PageSettings
The page settings for the page to be printed.

It is possible to print each page of a document using different page settings. You set page settings by modifying individual properties of the PageSettings property or by setting the property to a PageSettings. The print job can also be canceled by setting the Cancel property to true.

The following code example prints a document with the first page in color, if the printer supports it. The example assumes 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.


private void MyButtonPrint_OnClick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    // Set the printer name and ensure it is valid. If not, provide a message to the user.
    printDoc.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = "\\mynetworkprinter";

    if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.IsValid) {

        // If the printer supports printing in color, then override the printer's default behavior. 
        if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.SupportsColor) {

            // Set the page default's to not print in color.
            printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.Color = false;
        }

        // Provide a friendly name, set the page number, and print the document.
        printDoc.DocumentName = "My Presentation";
        currentPageNumber = 1;
        printDoc.Print();
    }
    else {
        MessageBox.Show("Printer is not valid");
    }
}

private void MyPrintQueryPageSettingsEvent(object sender, QueryPageSettingsEventArgs e)
{
    // Determines if the printer supports printing in color. 
    if (printDoc.PrinterSettings.SupportsColor) {

        // If the printer supports color printing, use color. 
        if (currentPageNumber == 1 ) {

            e.PageSettings.Color = true;
        }

    }    
}
