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()

Remarks

For a class that includes the same information about the media size as PageMediaSize and also includes information about the imageable area of the page, see PrintDocumentImageableArea.

Caution

Classes within the System.Printing namespace are not supported for use within a Windows service or ASP.NET application or service. Attempting to use these classes from within one of these application types may produce unexpected problems, such as diminished service performance and run-time exceptions.

If you want to print from a Windows Forms application, see the System.Drawing.Printing namespace.
