Public Class PrinterFallbackSettings
public class PrinterFallbackSettings

The PrinterFallbackSettings type exposes the following members.


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



  Name Description
Public property ForceVector Gets or sets whether all printing is forced to print in vector format.
Public property OpacityThreshold Gets or sets the opacity value of visual elements at which Silverlight will round the opacity to 1.0 to support vector printing on PostScript printers or drivers.



  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.)



The settings provided by this class are used only if the target printer or driver has vector printing limitations. For example, OpacityThreshold is utilized on printers that do not support opacity settings such as PostScript printers. You typically use the property settings together to enable this scenario. You should set the ForceVector property to true to force vector printing and additionally set the OpacityThreshold to the opacity value setting at which Silverlight will round the opacity to 1.0 to support PostScript printing.
