How to Save Windows form as pdf

Frans Jan asked:

Open original thread
Hi all,

I'm creating a Windows Application with several forms in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. I want the user to be able to export the open form as a PDF-file. I ran into some answers recommending PDFSharp[^], but I have no clue how to use it... I tried to figure it out by reading forums, other questions and anwers, but I've just no clue where to get started. So, can someone please help me get started, by telling me how to implement PDFSharp in my project?

Or if you guys have other suggestions/recommendations on how to save a Windows Form to pdf, please let me know :)

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
