Examples

The following code example demonstrates the Document, UseAntiAlias, and Zoom properties of the PrintPreviewControl. To run this example, place the following code in a form and call the InitializePrintPreviewControl method from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

internal:
   // Declare the PrintPreviewControl object and the 
   // PrintDocument object.
   PrintPreviewControl^ PrintPreviewControl1;

private:
   System::Drawing::Printing::PrintDocument^ docToPrint;
   void InitializePrintPreviewControl()
   {
      // Construct the PrintPreviewControl.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1 = gcnew PrintPreviewControl;
      
      // Set location, name, and dock style for PrintPreviewControl1.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Location = Point(88,80);
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Name = "PrintPreviewControl1";
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Dock = DockStyle::Fill;
      
      // Set the Document property to the PrintDocument 
      // for which the PrintPage event has been handled.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Document = docToPrint;
      
      // Set the zoom to 25 percent.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Zoom = 0.25;
      
      // Set the document name. This will show be displayed when 
      // the document is loading into the control.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->Document->DocumentName = "c:\\someFile";
      
      // Set the UseAntiAlias property to true so fonts are smoothed
      // by the operating system.
      this->PrintPreviewControl1->UseAntiAlias = true;
      
      // Add the control to the form.
      this->Controls->Add( this->PrintPreviewControl1 );
      
      // Associate the event-handling method with the
      // document's PrintPage event.
