XtraReport.PaperKind Property

Gets or sets the report’s paper kind.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v21.1.dll

Declaration

[SRCategory(ReportStringId.CatPageSettings)]
[DefaultValue(PaperKind.Letter)]
[XRLocalizable(true)]
public PaperKind PaperKind { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
PaperKind

Letter

The report’s paper kind.

Remarks

Set the paper type to the Custom value to specify the report’s XtraReport.PageWidth, XtraReport.PageHeight, and XtraReport.PageSize. Any other paper kind value sets the predefined report page width, height and size.

NOTE

The default PaperKind value depends on the global Report Units value:

If the PaperKind property is set to Custom, the printer paper is selected according to the XtraReport.PaperName property value. In this case, set the XtraReport.PageWidth and XtraReport.PageHeight properties to paper’s width and height.

Example

The code sample below creates a new report, sets its name, display name, paper kind and margins, and adds the Detail Band band with the XRLabel control on it.

using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Printing;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...
public static XtraReport CreateReport() {
    XtraReport report = new XtraReport() {
        Name = "SimpleStaticReport",
        DisplayName = "Simple Static Report",
        PaperKind = PaperKind.Letter,
        Margins = new Margins(100, 100, 100, 100)
    };

    DetailBand detailBand = new DetailBand() {
        HeightF = 25
    };
    report.Bands.Add(detailBand);

    XRLabel helloWordLabel = new XRLabel() {
        Text = "Hello, World!",
        Font = new Font("Tahoma", 20f, FontStyle.Bold),
        BoundsF = new RectangleF(0, 0, 250, 50),
    };
    detailBand.Controls.Add(helloWordLabel);

    return report;
