A ImageFormat object which specifies the image format.


Once the document export has started, it will run until the resulting document is complete and cannot be interrupted or canceled in the process.

Use this method to export a document to an image using the specified image format.

Note that in this instance the current printing system export options, which are represented by the ImageExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Image property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions, are ignored.

If you want to use the current export options of a printing system, you should call the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToImage method without the format parameter.
