Printing a document with multiple pages (page breaks)

5
Hello!

I need to print two pages using PrintDocument, but there are some problems.

I've got something like that:
-button is pressed
-two pages need to be printed

The code is like that:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. PrintDocument print_tab1 = new PrintDocument();
  2.  
  3. in main():
  4.         print_tab1.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(printTab1);
  5.  
  6.         private void print_tab1_but_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  7.         {
  8.  
  9.             PrintDialog pd = new PrintDialog();
  10.             pd.Document = print_tab1;
  11.             if (pd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
  12.             {
  13.                 print_tab1.Print();
  14.             }
  15.         }
  16.  
  17.         private void printTab1(Object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e)
  18.         {
  19.             e.Graphics.DrawString("page 1", new Font("Times new roman", 14, FontStyle.Bold), Brushes.Black, 60, 10);
  20.             e.HasMorePages = true;
  21.             e.Graphics.DrawString("page 2", new Font("Times new roman", 14, FontStyle.Bold), Brushes.Black, 60, 10);
  22.             e.HasMorePages = false;
  23.         }
I've seen the following post: http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread104989.html
But I can't figure out how to insert page break BEFORE the page actually ends and print the data that is FOMED IN THE SAME METHOD.

I understand that after printing a single page the method exits. But it doesn't when the page still has space to print on it. So I've got "page 1" and "page 2" on the same page.
And if I return from printTab1 explicitly, than how should I call it again and print ONLY the second page?

Would appreciate any help.

Here is an example that may help:
Printing in C#

Note the use of hasmorepages...

As I stated in my first post I've seen a very similar example, where a block of text is printed. But what I need is two words example - one word on the first page and the other on the second. "while" is not suitable for this. For better understanding see my simple code snippet (which doesn't work, but you'll get the idea).

Ok. Managed to find a solution all by myself.
In case someone has the same problem in teh future:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. int page = 1;
  2. private void printTab1(Object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e)
  3. {
  4.   if (page == 1)
  5.   {
  6.     e.Graphics.DrawString("page1", new Font("Times new roman", 14, FontStyle.Bold), Brushes.Black, 60, 10);
  7.     e.HasMorePages = true;
  8.   }
  9.   if (page == 2)
  10.   {
  11.     e.Graphics.DrawString("page2", new Font("Times new roman", 14, FontStyle.Bold), Brushes.Black, 60, 10);
  12.     e.HasMorePages = false;
  13.   }
  14.   page++;
  15. }
