The name which should be used for the document to be displayed in the Print Preview.

Remarks

To print the document immediately without invoking any dialogs, use the ChartControlBase.PrintDirect method.

To show the standard Print dialog, use the ChartControlBase.Print method. The dialog allows end-users to print the chart, select the printer (if required), specify the range of pages to print, the number of copies, etc.

To export the chart, use the appropriate ExportTo~ method (e.g., ChartControlBase.ExportToHtml, ChartControlBase.ExportToPdf, etc.)

IMPORTANT

The chart can be previewed, printed and exported only if the DXPrinting Library is available. Make sure you add a reference to the DevExpress.Xpf.Printing.v20.1 assembly.
