PrintableComponentLink.ShowPreviewDialog() Method

Invokes the Print Preview Form which modally shows the print preview of the document for this link.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v22.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Printing

Declaration

public void ShowPreviewDialog()

Remarks

Use the ShowPreviewDialog method to invoke the PrintPreviewFormEx 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 PrintableComponentLink.CreateDocument method hasn’t been called for it), then calling the ShowPreviewDialog method will create it first.

Consequently, if a document was created prior to calling the ShowPreviewDialog method, and nothing was changed that may force its re-creation, the ShowPreviewDialog method doesn’t re-create it, so you need to manually call the PrintableComponentLink.CreateDocument method, if required.

For more information, refer to Document Viewer and Document Viewer Toolbars.
