You can use this method to implement a Print button similar to the one in Internet Explorer. This method prints the current document without requiring further user input. To display the Print dialog box prior to printing, use the ShowPrintDialog method. To display the Page Setup dialog box, which lets your users specify header and footer values and other page settings, use the ShowPageSetupDialog method. To display the Print Preview dialog box, use the ShowPrintPreviewDialog method.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Print method to implement a Print button for the WebBrowser control that is similar to the Print button in Internet Explorer. This example requires that your form contains a WebBrowser control called webBrowser1 and a Button control called ButtonPrint.

// Prints the current document using the current print settings.
private void printButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    webBrowser1.Print();
}
