Examples

The following code example prints a document with the first page in color, if the printer supports it. The example assumes that a PrintDocument variable named printDoc has been created, and the PrintPage and QueryPageSettings events are handled.

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

private:
   void MyButtonPrint_OnClick( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Set the printer name and ensure it is valid. If not, provide a message to the user.
      printDoc->PrinterSettings->PrinterName = "\\mynetworkprinter";
      if ( printDoc->PrinterSettings->IsValid )
      {
         // If the printer supports printing in color, then override the printer's default behavior.
         if ( printDoc->PrinterSettings->SupportsColor )
         {
            // Set the page default's to not print in color.
            printDoc->DefaultPageSettings->Color = false;
         }

         // Provide a friendly name, set the page number, and print the document.
         printDoc->DocumentName = "My Presentation";
         currentPageNumber = 1;

Remarks

It is possible to print each page of a document using different page settings. You set page settings by modifying individual properties of the PageSettings property or by setting the property to a PageSettings. The print job can also be canceled by setting the Cancel property to true.
