PagesPerSheetDirection Enumeration

 

Specifies the arrangement of pages when more than one page of content appears on a single side of print media.

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

public enum PagesPerSheetDirection

Member nameDescription
BottomLeft

Pages appear in columns, from top to bottom and right to left relative to page orientation.

BottomRight

Pages appear in columns, from top to bottom and left to right relative to page orientation.

LeftBottom

Pages appear in rows, from right to left and top to bottom relative to page orientation.

LeftTop

Pages appear in rows, from right to left and bottom to top relative to page orientation.

RightBottom

Pages appear in rows, from left to right and top to bottom relative to page orientation.

RightTop

Pages appear in rows, from left to right and bottom to top relative to page orientation.

TopLeft

Pages appear in columns, from bottom to top and right to left relative to page orientation.

TopRight

Pages appear in columns, from bottom to top and left to right relative to page orientation.

Unknown

The feature (whose options are represented by this enumeration) is set to an option not defined in the Print Schema.

Use the values of this type primarily for these purposes:

The Unknown value is never used in properties of PrintCapabilities objects.

You should never set a PrintTicket property to Unknown. If some other PrintTicket producing application has created a PrintTicket document that sets the pages-per-sheet-direction feature to an unrecognized option (that is, an option that is not defined in the Print Schema), then a PrintTicket object in your application that is constructed with that document will have Unknown as the value of the PagesPerSheetDirection property.

Although the PrintTicket and PrintCapabilities classes cannot be inherited, you can extend the Print Schema to recognize print device features that are not accounted for in the PrintTicket or PrintCapabilities classes. For more information see NOTINBUILD: How to: Extend the Print Schema and Create New Print System Classes.

The following example shows how to test a printer's capabilities and configure the print job to take advantage of them.

// ---------------------- GetPrintTicketFromPrinter -----------------------
/// <summary>
///   Returns a PrintTicket based on the current default printer.</summary>
/// <returns>
///   A PrintTicket for the current local default printer.</returns>
private PrintTicket GetPrintTicketFromPrinter()
{
    PrintQueue printQueue = null;

    LocalPrintServer localPrintServer = new LocalPrintServer();

    // Retrieving collection of local printer on user machine
    PrintQueueCollection localPrinterCollection =
        localPrintServer.GetPrintQueues();

    System.Collections.IEnumerator localPrinterEnumerator =
        localPrinterCollection.GetEnumerator();

    if (localPrinterEnumerator.MoveNext())
    {
        // Get PrintQueue from first available printer
        printQueue = (PrintQueue)localPrinterEnumerator.Current;
    }
    else
    {
        // No printer exist, return null PrintTicket
        return null;
    }

    // Get default PrintTicket from printer
    PrintTicket printTicket = printQueue.DefaultPrintTicket;

    PrintCapabilities printCapabilites = printQueue.GetPrintCapabilities();

    // Modify PrintTicket
    if (printCapabilites.CollationCapability.Contains(Collation.Collated))
    {
        printTicket.Collation = Collation.Collated;
    }

    if ( printCapabilites.DuplexingCapability.Contains(
            Duplexing.TwoSidedLongEdge) )
    {
        printTicket.Duplexing = Duplexing.TwoSidedLongEdge;
    }

    if (printCapabilites.StaplingCapability.Contains(Stapling.StapleDualLeft))
    {
        printTicket.Stapling = Stapling.StapleDualLeft;
    }

    return printTicket;
}// end:GetPrintTicketFromPrinter()
