PrintPreviewOptions.SaveMode Property

Gets or sets a value which specifies how the file path to export a document is obtained when exporting a document from the Print Preview.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v19.2.Core.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(SaveMode.UsingSaveFileDialog)]
public SaveMode SaveMode { get; set; }
<DefaultValue(SaveMode.UsingSaveFileDialog)>
Public Property SaveMode As SaveMode

Property Value

Type Default Description
SaveMode

UsingSaveFileDialog

A SaveMode enumeration value which specifies how the file path is obtained.

Remarks

Use the SaveMode property to implement silent exporting in the Print Preview (when no Save File dialog is displayed for an end-user). To accomplish this, you should provide the correct file path using the PrintPreviewOptions.DefaultDirectory and PrintPreviewOptions.DefaultFileName properties, and set the SaveMode property to SaveMode.UsingDefaultPath.

Examples

This example illustrates how to specify the primary export options of a report by using the XtraReport.ExportOptions property. These options are taken into account when a document is being exported from a print preview.

This example presumes that a report is exported silently, without prompting an end-user to customize the export options.

All available export options are listed in the ExportOptionKind enumeration.
