Name Type Description
lookAndFeel UserLookAndFeel

A UserLookAndFeel object which specifies the look and feel settings applied to the Ribbon Print Preview form.


Use the ShowRibbonPreview method to invoke the PrintPreviewRibbonFormEx form and show the Print Preview of the document created for this link.

If the link’s document has not been created yet (the PrintableComponentLink.CreateDocument method has not been called for it), then calling the ShowRibbonPreview method will create it first. Consequently, if a document was created prior to calling the ShowRibbonPreview method, and nothing was changed that may force its re-creation, the ShowRibbonPreview method does not re-create it, so you need to manually call the PrintableComponentLink.CreateDocument method, if required.

The following image illustrates a Ribbon Print Preview form.
