The following image illustrates the Print dialog invoked by the DefaultPrintDialogRunner.Run method as an alternative to the standard PrintDialog that is returned by the SystemPrintDialogRunner.Run.



To make the PrintTool.PrintDialog method invoke the standard system Print dialog, add the following code to the application’s Program.cs unit (Program.vb in Visual Basic).

This will replace the DefaultPrintDialogRunner, returned by the PrintDialogRunner.Instance property, with a SystemPrintDialogRunner.

using DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Preview;
// ...

static void Main(string[] args) {
    PrintDialogRunner.Instance = new SystemPrintDialogRunner();
    // ...
