PageImageableArea Class

Represents the area of a page that can be printed.

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

public sealed class PageImageableArea
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

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.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
