The size of the printable area in screen pixels. The default is 0.0F.

Silverlight provides the conversion between device pixels and screen pixels so that the value of the PrintableArea property represents the printable area, which is typically smaller than the actual paper size. If the dimensions of the printed content exceed the PrintableArea, the printed content is clipped.


Supported in: 5, 4
