DataViewBase.PrintDirect() Method

Prints the grid using the default printer.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

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


public void PrintDirect()
Public Sub PrintDirect


Use the PrintDirect method without parameters, to immediately send the grid to a default printer, and the PrintDirect method with the queue parameter, to send the grid to a specific printer. Also, you can use the DataViewBase.Print method to print the grid using custom printing settings, specified by an end-user via the Print dialog.

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.)


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