Glossary Item Box

You can print a sheet to a Portable Document Format (PDF, version 1.4) file using the PrintToPdf method in the PrintInfo class. Use the PdfFileName property to specify the file name and location to which to save the file. Since PrintInfo objects are assigned to individual sheets, this method prints an individual sheet.

To customize these settings, refer to Understanding the Printing Options and Customizing the Printed Page Header or Footer. To allow Spread to determine the best print settings, refer to Optimizing the Printing Using Rules.

Using Code

Call the PrintToPdf property in the PrintInfo class to print the specified sheet.


This example code saves the sheet to a PDF file.

C# Copy Code
FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo printset = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo();
printset.PrintToPdf = true;
printset.PdfFileName = "D:\\results.pdf";
// Assign the printer settings and print
fpSpread1.Sheets[0].PrintInfo = printset;
VB Copy Code
Dim printset As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.PrintInfo()
printset.PrintToPdf = True
printset.PdfFileName = "D:\results.pdf"
' Assign the printer settings and print
FpSpread1.Sheets(0).PrintInfo = printset
