Hi,

How can I change the code below to display the print preview before printing the form?

PrintDocument pd = new PrintDocument();
            pd.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(PrintImage);
            pd.Print();

Thanks

Hi,

drag PrintPreviewDialog control to your form and and update your code as below.

Private Sub btnPrintPreview_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrintPreview.Click

	PrintDocument pd = new PrintDocument();
	pd.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(PrintImage);

	PrintPreviewDialog1.Document .Document = pd
	PrintPreviewDialog1.Document .WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
	PrintPreviewDialog1.Document .ShowDialog()

End Sub

Private Sub btnPrint_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPrint.Click

	PrintDocument pd = new PrintDocument();
	pd.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(PrintImage);

	pd.Print();
	
End Sub

Open in new window


Try it. This may work for you.
