The DrawToBitmap method is not supported for ActiveX controls. You can override the OnPrint event and provide custom printing logic if required.

The DrawToBitmap method has the following limitations:

  • An ArgumentException might be thrown for large bitmaps. The maximum allowable size varies by machine.

  • DrawToBitmap does not support the Ink controls for the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 operating system.

  • DrawToBitmap does not draw a child TextBox if the Visible property of the TextBox is set to false.

  • Controls inside containers are rendered in reverse order.

  • DrawToBitmap is not fully functional for the RichTextBox; only the border of a bitmap is drawn.
