DataViewBase.Print() Method

Invokes the Print dialog and prints the grid.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v19.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public void Print()
Public Sub Print

Remarks

This method displays the standard Print dialog that allows an end-user to print the grid, as well as select the printer (if required), specify the range of pages to print, the number of copies, etc. To print the grid immediately, without invoking any dialogs, use the DataViewBase.PrintDirect method instead.

To display the Print Preview of the grid, use the DataViewBase.ShowPrintPreview and DataViewBase.ShowPrintPreviewDialog methods. To export the grid, use the appropriate ExportTo~ method (e.g. DataViewBase.ExportToHtml, DataViewBase.ExportToPdf, etc.)

NOTE

The grid can be previewed, printed and exported only if the DXPrinting Library is available.

To learn more, see Printing.

Examples

This example shows how to preview and print/export the grid content. The grid is printed and exported using the built-in capabilities.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace DXGrid_PrintGrid {
    public class IssueList {
        public List<IssueDataObject> List { get; private set; }
        public IssueList() {
            List = GetIssueList();
        }
        List<IssueDataObject> GetIssueList() {
            List<IssueDataObject> data = new List<IssueDataObject>();
            data.Add(new IssueDataObject() { IssueName = "Transaction History", IssueType = "Bug", IsPrivate = true });
            data.Add(new IssueDataObject() { IssueName = "Ledger: Inconsistency", IssueType = "Bug", IsPrivate = false });
            data.Add(new IssueDataObject() { IssueName = "Data Import", IssueType = "Request", IsPrivate = false });
            data.Add(new IssueDataObject() { IssueName = "Data Archiving", IssueType = "Request", IsPrivate = true });
            return data;
        }
    }
    public class IssueDataObject {
        public string IssueName { get; set; }
        public string IssueType { get; set; }
        public bool IsPrivate { get; set; }
