Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public Rect BleedBox { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Rect

The Rect defining the overflow area.

BleedBox is used to specify an expanded area for print production-related bleeds, registration marks, and crop marks that may extend outside the logical page. The logical page is the part of the sheet that will remain after it has been cropped to its final size. So the dimensions of the bleed box can be no smaller than the logical page size, but may be greater. Contrast the BleedBox with the ContentBox which is the area of the page on which content can appear; that is, the part of the page that is within the margins. So the dimensions of the content box can be no larger than the page, but may be smaller.

The Left and Right properties of both the bleed box and the content box are measured from the left and the Top and Bottom properties are measured from the top. Hence, the following rules must be enforced in defining the BleedBox and ContentBox:
