        PrintDialog pDialog = new PrintDialog();
        pDialog.PageRangeSelection = PageRangeSelection.AllPages;
        pDialog.UserPageRangeEnabled = true;

        // Display the dialog. This returns true if the user presses the Print button.
        Nullable<Boolean> print = pDialog.ShowDialog();
        if (print == true)
        {
            XpsDocument xpsDocument = new XpsDocument("C:\\FixedDocumentSequence.xps", FileAccess.ReadWrite);
            FixedDocumentSequence fixedDocSeq = xpsDocument.GetFixedDocumentSequence();
            pDialog.PrintDocument(fixedDocSeq.DocumentPaginator, "Test print job");
        }
    }
Private Sub InvokePrint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
		' Create the print dialog object and set options
		Dim pDialog As New PrintDialog()
		pDialog.PageRangeSelection = PageRangeSelection.AllPages
		pDialog.UserPageRangeEnabled = True

		' Display the dialog. This returns true if the user presses the Print button.
		Dim print? As Boolean = pDialog.ShowDialog()
		If print = True Then
			Dim xpsDocument As New XpsDocument("C:\FixedDocumentSequence.xps", FileAccess.ReadWrite)
			Dim fixedDocSeq As FixedDocumentSequence = xpsDocument.GetFixedDocumentSequence()
			pDialog.PrintDocument(fixedDocSeq.DocumentPaginator, "Test print job")
