Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll)
When PrintToPrinter is selected, the output is directed to the system default printer. You can override this behavior and explicitly set the printer and printer properties by using the PrinterSettings property. If no default printer is available, the user is prompted to select a printer.
When PrintToPreview is selected, the form is displayed in a standard Windows Forms PrintPreviewDialog control.
When PrintToFile is selected, an image of the form is saved to an Encapsulated PostScript file (.eps, .ps, or .ai) in the path specified by the PrintFileName property. If no file name is specified, the user is prompted for a file name.
Files are saved in an 8-bit Greyscale PostScript format. 24-bit RGB PostScript is not supported.
