    Is it possible to get the name of the printer that the user selected when printing a PDF document using the RadPdfViewer?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Ole,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    To access the printer name you can use the PrinterSettings property. To access that name before the actual printing (the user may have changed it) you can use the BeginPrint event:
    void document_BeginPrint(object sender, System.Drawing.Printing.PrintEventArgs e)
         string PrinterName = document.PrinterSettings.PrinterName;         

    More information about this is available in the following articles:

    I hope this will be useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
