Hi vterekh,
it depends from printer resolution and size of document.

Let say that page width 210mm and printers DPI = 600.

210mm / 25.4 (1") = 8.26"
8.26" * 600DPI = 4960 pixels. Width of document in pixels.

Hi vterekh,
yes, it depend from DPI.

600 DPI / 25.4 = 23.622 pixel per mm

100 pix  / 23.622 = 4 mm

Be carefull, sometimes vertical and horizontal resolutions are different. Let say horizontal resolution can be 1200 but vertical can be only 320 DPI.

Hi vterekh,

another way is to look at TPrinter property
PageWidth
PageHeight

Indicates the height and width in pixels of the currently printing page.
