Simple DrawImage question for PrintDocument

I'd like to print an image stretched to the maximum available space on a page in PrintDocument.  The image is stored as type Image

What I'd like to see is code that will take an Image and call e.Graphics.DrawImage in such a way that the image takes up all the available space (remember to take into account e.marginbounds)

Alternatively, if there is a better method, I'd love to see it, as long as it works.

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "
#End Region

    'Sub for printing graphic
    Private Sub PrintGraphic(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal ev As PrintPageEventArgs)
        ' Create the graphic using DrawImage
        'DrawImage expands graphic to the max size of the paper
        ev.Graphics.DrawImage(Image.FromFile(TextBox1.Text), ev.Graphics.VisibleClipBounds)
        ' Specify that this is the last page to print
        ev.HasMorePages = False
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ' Print using an error handler to catch problems

Perfect! Thanks, the e.Graphics.VisibleClipBounds was exactly what I was looking for.
