Center PrintPreviewDialog in VB.Net

Hello Experts,

I would like to know how I could center a PrintPreviewDialog on a screen. I already tried to do it with SetDesktopLocation but it did not work. Any ideas how to solve this?

Thank you in advance,
Zoidi

Old post found when trying to do the same in C#. For anybody ending up here for the same reason:
You have to Cast it to Form to do the same.
PrintPreviewDialog1.ClientSize = new Size(900, 700); //change to suit
((Form)PrintPreviewDialog1).StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen;
PrintPreviewDialog1.Show();
