Examples

The following example shows how to use this class to scale a visual element to fit within the margins of the paper on which it is to print.

/// <summary>
///   Returns a scaled copy of a given visual transformed to
///   fit for printing to a specified print queue.</summary>
/// <param name="v">
///   The visual to be printed.</param>
/// <param name="pq">
///   The print queue to be output to.</param>
/// <returns>
///   The root element of the transformed visual.</returns>
private Visual PerformTransform(Visual v, PrintQueue pq)
{
    ContainerVisual root = new ContainerVisual();
    const double inch = 96;

    // Set the margins.
    double xMargin = 1.25 * inch;
    double yMargin = 1 * inch;

    PrintTicket pt = pq.UserPrintTicket;
    Double printableWidth = pt.PageMediaSize.Width.Value;
    Double printableHeight = pt.PageMediaSize.Height.Value;

    Double xScale = (printableWidth - xMargin * 2) / printableWidth;
    Double yScale = (printableHeight - yMargin * 2) / printableHeight;

    root.Children.Add(v);
    root.Transform = new MatrixTransform(xScale, 0, 0, yScale, xMargin, yMargin);

    return root;
}// end:PerformTransform()
