PageImageableArea Class

Represents the area of a page that can be printed.


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

public sealed class PageImageableArea

The PageImageableArea type exposes the following members.

Public propertyExtentHeightGets the height of the imageable area.
Public propertyExtentWidthGets the width of the imageable area.
Public propertyOriginHeightGets the origin height, which is the distance from the upper-left corner of the imageable area (also called the "origin" of the imageable area) to the nearest point on the top edge of the page.
Public propertyOriginWidthGets the origin width, which is the distance from the left edge of the page to the upper-left corner of the imageable area (also called the "origin" of the imageable area).

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns the String representation of PageImageableArea. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Most laser and inkjet printers must leave an unprinted area around the edges of a page to prevent toner from getting on the parts of the printer that move the sheets. For many photographic printers, however, the entire page is imageable.

For a class that includes the same information about the imageable area as PageImageableArea and also includes page size, see PrintDocumentImageableArea.
