Collate Property

Applies to: PrintPreview, IPrinterEx object

Type: Boolean


Returns or sets a value that determines whether multiple copies of the report will be printed collated or not. Collating is performed when the number of copies is greater than 1. The Printer device must support collating, otherwise this setting has not effect.

When the copies of the report are printed collated, the pages are printed in this order: 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3. And when they are not collated: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3.

The default is True.

This setting can also be changed by the user from the Printer dialog box.
