    Customizing the Print Job Settings
    In This Topic

    Sheets are printed on the current default printer in your Windows environment unless you specify otherwise. You can print sheets on any Windows-supported printer.

    The print job settings that you can customize include: printer, source, and page size. Set the Printer, PaperSource, or PaperSize on the PrintInfo object.

    Using Code

    1. Set various print job settings.
    2. Print the sheet.

    Example

    This example code sets the paper source based on a selection from a combo box and sets the paper size before printing all the sheets.

    C#
    Copy Code
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
        int i;
        System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings ps = new System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings();
        
        for (i = 0; i <= ps.PaperSources.Count - 1; i++)
        {
            comboBox1.Items.Add(ps.PaperSources[i].SourceName);
        }
        comboBox1.Text = ps.PaperSources[0].SourceName;
    }
    
    private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e
    {
        FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo pi = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo();
        System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings ps = new System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings();
        pi.PaperSize = new System.Drawing.Printing.PaperSize("Letter", 600, 300);
        pi.PaperSource = ps.PaperSources[comboBox1.SelectedIndex];
        fpSpread1.Sheets[0].PrintInfo = pi;
        fpSpread1.PrintSheet(-1);
    }
    VB
    Copy Code
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim ps As New System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings()
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To ps.PaperSources.Count - 1
            ComboBox1.Items.Add(ps.PaperSources.Item(i).SourceName)
        Next
        ComboBox1.Text = ps.PaperSources.Item(0).SourceName
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim pi As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo()
        Dim ps As New System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings()
        pi.PaperSize = New System.Drawing.Printing.PaperSize("Letter", 600, 300)
        pi.PaperSource = ps.PaperSources(ComboBox1.SelectedIndex)
        fpSpread1.Sheets(0).PrintInfo = pi
        fpSpread1.PrintSheet(-1)
    End Sub
