PrintPage Event

The event PrintPageEvent is fired before each page is printed; this allows the calling application to:

 

The PrintPageEvent event is NOT fired when doing page by page printing. For instance, using the StartPrint, PrintPage or EndPrint Methods.

This is because the code is already in exact control of the printing process.

 

 

Event Arguments

pageNumber

PageNumber is the one based index of the page to be printed.

continue

Set this parameter to 0 to skip, 1 to print, -1 to cancel.
