ImageRectangle Property


Gets or sets the rectangle that specifies the portion of the image to print.


public Rectangle ImageRectangle { get; set; } 
property Rectangle ImageRectangle { 
   Rectangle get(); 
   void set (    Rectangle ); 
   property Rectangle^ ImageRectangle 
      Rectangle^ get() 
      void set(Rectangle^ value) 

Property Value

A System.Drawing.Rectangle that specifies the portion of the image to print.


This rectangle must be in image coordinates. To convert between image and device coordinates refer to Leadtools.RasterImage.RectangleFromImage(Leadtools.RasterViewPerspective,Leadtools.LeadRect) and Leadtools.RasterImage.RectangleToImage(Leadtools.RasterViewPerspective,Leadtools.LeadRect)

You can also pass Rectangle.Empty to use the whole image.


This example loads an image and then prints the top-left corner of the image to the bottom-right corner of the page. For an example on printing an image using default rectangles, refer to RasterImagePrinter.
