Hello

I have previously created a Graphics object and I would like to print it.

The problem is the PrintPage handler is passed a Graphics in the EventArgs and that's what's used.

I am trying to do something like this
private void pd_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs ev)
{
  ev.Graphics = g;  //Where g is the graphics I have already saved.  But ev.Graphics is read only...
}

Is there a way to do what I am asking?

Regards,
NTAC

Greg can you post an example of writing to a bitmap in a memory stream?  

I looked up the Bitmap class, and there is a Bitmap(stream) constructor, but I'm not sure how to get my Graphics g into a stream.

from looking at another question where you detail why you wanted to do this ...

"as for your graphics question I believe this gets done for you as well (it just reuses the graphics object 4 times) it won't ask you to draw it for each of the 4 copies (they are copies I mean why would it ask 4 times)

theres alot of detailed info here http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/winforms/doc/WinFormsPrinting.aspx"
