Write Method (DocumentPaginator, PrintTicket)

SerializerWriter.Write Method (DocumentPaginator, PrintTicket)

When overridden in a derived class, synchronously writes paginated content together with an associated PrintTicket to the serialization Stream.

Namespace: System.Windows.Documents.Serialization
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)

public abstract void Write (
	DocumentPaginator documentPaginator,
	PrintTicket printTicket
public abstract void Write (
	DocumentPaginator documentPaginator, 
	PrintTicket printTicket
public abstract function Write (
	documentPaginator : DocumentPaginator, 
	printTicket : PrintTicket
You cannot use methods in XAML.



The document paginator that defines the content to write to the serialization Stream.


The default print preferences for the documentPaginator content.

printTicket can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there are no preferred print settings.

This method does not validate or modify the given printTicket for a particular PrintQueue. If needed, use the MergeAndValidatePrintTicket method to create a PrintQueue-specific PrintTicket that is valid for a given printer.

The output Stream of the write operation is normally specified as a parameter to the constructor of the derived class that implements SerializerWriter.

The following example shows use of the Write method to serialize a flow document to an output file. For the complete sample, see Document Serialization Sample.

// Create a SerializerProvider for accessing plug-in serializers.
SerializerProvider serializerProvider = new SerializerProvider();

// Locate the serializer that matches the fileName extension.
SerializerDescriptor selectedPlugIn = null;
foreach ( SerializerDescriptor serializerDescriptor in
                serializerProvider.InstalledSerializers )
    if ( serializerDescriptor.IsLoadable &&
         fileName.EndsWith(serializerDescriptor.DefaultFileExtension) )
    {   // The plug-in serializer and fileName extensions match.
        selectedPlugIn = serializerDescriptor;
        break; // foreach

// If a match for a plug-in serializer was found,
// use it to output and store the document.
if (selectedPlugIn != null)
    Stream package = File.Create(fileName);
    SerializerWriter serializerWriter =
    IDocumentPaginatorSource idoc =
        flowDocument as IDocumentPaginatorSource;
    serializerWriter.Write(idoc.DocumentPaginator, null);
    return true;
