PrintableComponentLink.ShowPreview(IWin32Window, UserLookAndFeel) Method
Invokes the Print Preview Form that shows the print preview of the document for this link as a child of the specified parent window, using the specified look and feel settings.
NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Printing
public virtual void ShowPreview( IWin32Window owner, UserLookAndFeel lookAndFeel )
Public Overridable Sub ShowPreview( owner As IWin32Window, lookAndFeel As UserLookAndFeel )
A IWin32Window object representing the parent window for this dialog.
A UserLookAndFeel object which specifies the look and feel settings applied to the Print Preview Form.
Use the ShowPreview method to invoke the Print Preview form and show the print preview of the document created for this link. Note that if the link’s document hasn’t been created (the Link.CreateDocument method hasn’t been called for it), then calling the ShowPreview will create it first. Consequently, if a document was created prior to calling the ShowPreview method, and nothing was changed that may force its re-creation, the ShowPreview method doesn’t re-create it, so you need to manually call the Link.CreateDocument method, if required.
The following image illustrates the standard Print Preview form.
