How can I print my rendered RS2008 report from c#?

I have a class that renders my report and saves it to a PDF file. As well as the save to pdf I also want to send the report to a printer. (Ideally default printer).

I've attached the code below, does anyone know how to modify this to add the print feature?

I'm using VS2008, .net 3.5 and RS2008.

This blog entry should help.

http://geekswithblogs.net/bleepzter/archive/2008/10/09/printing-a-pdf-file-to-a-network-printer-with-c.aspx

It's not something I've actually had to do before, but it should be easy enough.

So that article uses the below code.

I'm new to development. How would I replace the tempDir with my directory and set it to print a specific file from a location (e.g. c:\reports)

Also, how do I call the public void into action?
using System;                                                               
using System.Collections.Generic;                                           
using System.ComponentModel;                                                
using System.Data; System.Drawing;                                          
using System.IO;                                                            
using System.Text; System.Windows.Forms;                                    
using System.Management;                                                    
using System.Management.Instrumentation;                                    
                                                                            
/* the stuff in between is not relevant that's why its not included  */     
                                                                            
private void print(ref DirectoryInfo tempDir)                               
{                                                                           
    try                                                                     
    {                                                                       
        foreach(FileInfo file in tempDir.GetFiles("*.pdf"))                 
        {                                                                   
            file.CopyTo("\\\\XYZ\\Phaser77\\" + file.Name);                 
        }                                                                   
    }                                                                       
    catch(Exception ee){ }                                                  
}

I ended up using a seperate class to render the report again in the IMAGE format, then sent this to the printer.
