I am writing a .NET standalone that will print drawing docs. I was wondering if there is a way to get a preview image of a selected sheet without using document manager.
You can display the SOLIDWORKS Print Preview dialog through the API.

There are other ways to get the preview image from SOLIDWORKS files, but that isn't necessarily what will print and it won't show multiple sheets.

Thank you Michael. I was going to use this as a preview window for which sheets have been selected. The first method would probably have worked better, but I don't plan on having Solidworks visible to the user.
