Public Property AllowSomePages As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Pages option button is enabled; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PrintDialog control to set the AllowSomePages, ShowHelp, and Document properties. To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a PrintDialog control named PrintDialog1 and a button named Button1. This example requires that the button's Click event and the PrintPage event of docToPrint have been connected to the event-handling methods defined in this example.

' Declare the PrintDocument object.
Private WithEvents docToPrint As New Printing.PrintDocument

' This method will set properties on the PrintDialog object and
' then display the dialog.
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

    ' Allow the user to choose the page range he or she would
    ' like to print.
    PrintDialog1.AllowSomePages = True

    ' Show the help button.
    PrintDialog1.ShowHelp = True

    ' Set the Document property to the PrintDocument for 
    ' which the PrintPage Event has been handled. To display the
    ' dialog, either this property or the PrinterSettings property 
    ' must be set 
    PrintDialog1.Document = docToPrint

    Dim result As DialogResult = PrintDialog1.ShowDialog()

    ' If the result is OK then print the document.
    If (result = DialogResult.OK) Then
    End If

End Sub

' The PrintDialog will print the document
' by handling the document's PrintPage event.
Private Sub document_PrintPage(ByVal sender As Object, _
   ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs) _
       Handles docToPrint.PrintPage

    ' Insert code to render the page here.
    ' This code will be called when the control is drawn.

    ' The following code will render a simple
    ' message on the printed document.
    Dim text As String = "In document_PrintPage method."
    Dim printFont As New System.Drawing.Font _
        ("Arial", 35, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular)

    ' Draw the content.
    e.Graphics.DrawString(text, printFont, _
        System.Drawing.Brushes.Black, 10, 10)
End Sub
