Glossary Item Box

Gets or sets whether to print the colors as they appear on the screen.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Property ShowColor As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage)Copy Code
Dim instance As PrintInfo
Dim value As Boolean
instance.ShowColor = value
value = instance.ShowColor
public bool ShowColor {get; set;}

Property Value

Boolean: true to print the colors; false otherwise


When this property is set to false, the colors specified within the Spread component are ignored, the sheet prints using black and white, and the headers print in shades of gray. When this property is set to true and the sheet is not printed on a color printer, the colors print as dithered patterns. The ShowColor property works when exporting to PDF or an Excel-formatted file.


This example shows how to define the settings for customizing the printed page layout.
