The PrintPageEventArgs type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method PrintPageEventArgs Initializes a new instance of the PrintPageEventArgs class.



  Name Description
Public property HasMorePages Gets or sets whether there are more pages to print.
Public property PageMargins Gets the margins of the page that is currently printing.
Public property PageVisual Gets or sets the visual element to print.
Public property PrintableArea Gets the size of the printable area.



  Name Description
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



You can print the entire Silverlight control by setting the PageVisual property to the layout root of the Silverlight content. Alternatively, you can print a portion of the Silverlight control by setting PageVisual to the named UIElement that you want to print.

After the PrintPage event occurs, the specified PageVisual will be sent to the printer to be printed. If the content is too large to fit in to the PrintableArea, it will be clipped. If HasMorePages is true, PrintPage occurs again.
