Name Type Description
lookAndFeel UserLookAndFeel

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


If the link’s document has not yet been created (the CompositeLink.CreateDocument method has not been called for it), then calling the ShowPreview method 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 does not re-create it, so you need to manually call the CompositeLink.CreateDocument method to apply the document changes.

For more information, see Print Preview.
