  WPF visual to PDF - control page size
With our NiPDF library it is very easy to build PDF based on WPF visuals. It is literally a few lines of code which you can find documented on our website.

This week I got the question from a customer who wanted to influence the page size.

This is fairly easy to do by means of the PrintTicket class.
In line with the example on our website, the second step becomes:


// STEP 2: Convert this WPF Visual to an XPS Document
MemoryStream lMemoryStream = new MemoryStream();
{
Package package = Package.Open(lMemoryStream, FileMode.Create);
XpsDocument doc = new XpsDocument(package);
XpsDocumentWriter writer = XpsDocument.CreateXpsDocumentWriter(doc);
//Create PrintTicket for document and set its page size to the proper custom page size
PrintTicket printTicket = new PrintTicket();
//Set the page size to a custom 3.5" x 2.5" page
printTicket.PageMediaSize = new PageMediaSize(3.5 * 96.0, 2.5 * 96.0);
writer.Write(visual,printTicket);
doc.Close();
package.Close();
}


Easy to do, provided you know how to do it - as always!
