Introduction

The .NET Framework has a great deal of support for file processing. It does this through various stream-based classes of the System.IO namespace. For example, the FileInfo class provides information and operations on files. Serialization can be performed using any list-based class. Besides file processing, the .NET Framework also supports printing, which is done through the Graphics class.

Printing in Microsoft Windows has traditionally been difficult. To do this, you had to involve drawing, hooks, and callback functions, etc. In the .NET Framework, a great deal of the job was simplified by creating simple-to-use classes. In fact, many aspects were also made clearer such as what class does what and when. We reviewed those classes in Print or Page Setup. We will use the Print and Graphics classes here to see how to print.

 

The Print Dialog Box

 

Introduction

Besides saving or opening files, another operation users perform on a document consists of printing it. Printing is the ability to render, on paper, the result of a control's content or the contents of various controls. This is performed using an external device called a printer peripheral or simply a printer. To do this, users need access to a printer device. There are two main ways users print a document. They can ask the application they are using to send the document directly to a printer or they can use a dialog box to decide how the printing should be done.
