Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v20.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public virtual void InitializeRange(
    int maximum
)
Public Overridable Sub InitializeRange(
    maximum As Integer
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
maximum Int32

An integer value to be set to the maximum value of the ProgressReflector.

Remarks

The InitializeRange method is intended for internal use only. Normally, you don't need to use it.

Examples

This example illustrates how to use the ProgressReflector class (this class is intended to be used only with the documents created with the XtraReports Suite).

The following code invokes a form that contains the ProgressBarControl showing the document generation status. When the document creation is complete, the Progress Bar is hidden and the form shows a print preview.
