PrintingSystemBase.ExportToPdf(String) Method

Exports a document to the specified file path in PDF format.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

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


public void ExportToPdf(
    string filePath
Public Sub ExportToPdf(
    filePath As String


Name Type Description
filePath String

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


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 PDF file using its current PDF-specific export options.

These options are represented by the PdfExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Pdf property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions. This object provides the PdfExportOptions.ImageQuality, PdfExportOptions.NeverEmbeddedFonts and other properties which are intended to specify parameters of the resulting PDF file.

If you want to ignore the current export options of a printing system, and use your specific settings when a document is exported to PDF, you should use the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToPdf method with the options parameter.


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