Gets an object that represents the area of a page that the printer can use.

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

public PageImageableArea PageImageableArea { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Printing.PageImageableArea

A PageImageableArea object that specifies the distance, in pixels (units of 1/96 inch), of the upper-left corner of the imageable area. The vertical distance is measured from the top edge of the paper and the horizontal distance is measured from the left edge. The return value also specifies the width and height of the imageable area. If the printer driver does not report an imageable area, then this property is null.

Most laser and inkjet printers must allow an unprinted margin around the edges of a page to prevent toner from getting on the parts of the printer that move the sheets. Many photographic printers, however, can use the entire page to print an image.
