To indicate the current print progress, add the DevExpress.XtraEditors.ProgressBarControl to the application and set its Position property to the PrintProgressEventArgs.PageIndex value.

The PrintProgress event allows you to use the PrintProgressEventArgs.PageSettings property to specify page settings.
