PrintingSystemBase.ExportToMht(String, MhtExportOptions) Method

Exports a document to the specified file path in MHT format using the defined MHT-specific options.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v18.2.Core.dll


public void ExportToMht(
    string filePath,
    MhtExportOptions options
Public Sub ExportToMht(
    filePath As String,
    options As MhtExportOptions


Name Type Description
filePath String

A String which specifies the file name (including the full path) for the created MHT file.

options MhtExportOptions

An MhtExportOptions object which specifies the MHT export options to be applied when a document is exported.


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 a MHT file using the specified MHT export options (e.g. HtmlExportOptionsBase.CharacterSet, HtmlExportOptionsBase.ExportMode and so on).

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

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


This method overwrites any files present at the specified path that have the same file name without any warnings.
