Need pixel width for paper sizes A4, A5, Executive, Letter, Legal, Executive

    Question

  • Iam using System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser control in my application. To indicate the user of the paper size I need to know the pixel width of the following paper sizes:

    A4, A5, Executive, Letter, Legal, Executive.

    Thanks,

  • A4 := 210 mm × 297 mm
    A5 := 148 mm × 210 mm
    Executive := 7.25 inches × 10.5 inches
    Letter := 8.5 inches x 11 inches
    Legal := 8.5 inches x 14 inches

    so at 200 dpi:

    A4 = 1654 pixels x 2339 pixels
    A5 = 1165 pixels x 1654 pixels
    Executive = 1450 pixels x 2100 px
    Letter = 1700 pixels x 2200 pixels
    Legal = 1700 pixels x 2800 pixels

    fyi: you can get paper sizes on wikipedia
    fyi: you can use Google to do unit conversions for you for weird things like "dots" by substituting "units" like this:  297 mm * 200 units per inch

  • I don't know it off the top of my head, but you can just google for the sizes of the various paper types (in inches) and multiply by the DPI to get the size in pixels.

  • Well that's going to depend on the DPI settings for the printer at the time that you print the document. And the user can change that at print time...

  • I forgot to mention the DPI of the printer. Please let me know the pixel width for the paper sizes 'A4, A5, Executive, Letter, Legal and Executive' for 72 and 200 DPI's

    Thanks,
