Examples

Use the System.Drawing, System.Drawing.Printing, and System.IO namespaces for this example.

The following code example sets the default page settings for a document to left and right margins of 1 inch in width, and top and bottom margins of 1.5 inches in width.

void Printing()

   try
   {
      
      /* This assumes that a variable of type string, named filePath,
              has been set to the path of the file to print. */

                   defined. pd_PrintPage handles the PrintPage event. */
         pd->PrintPage += gcnew PrintPageEventHandler( this, &Sample::pd_PrintPage );
         
         /* This assumes that a variable of type string, named 
                   printer, has been set to the printer's name. */

        MessageBox.Show("An error occurred printing the file - " & ex.Message)
    End Try
End Sub

Remarks

If you measure margins in millimeters, multiply the margin width you want in millimeters by 3.937 to determine the correct measurement in hundredths of an inch. For example, if you want a margin of 25mm, multiply by 3.937 and the result is 98 when rounded down. You would then set the appropriate Margins member to 98.
