ListViewLink.ShowPreview() Method

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

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrintingLinks

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v18.2.dll

Declaration

public virtual void ShowPreview()
Public Overridable Sub ShowPreview

Remarks

Use the ShowPreview 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 ListViewLink.CreateDocument method hasn't 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 doesn't re-create it, so you need to manually call the ListViewLink.CreateDocument method, if required.

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