This method indirectly calls the PrintingSystemBase.ExportToHtml method of the XtraPrinting Library. If this library is not available the method does nothing. For details on the ExportToHtml method see the PrintingSystemBase.ExportToHtml topic.

For general information on exporting data in the Grid Control refer to Export Overview.
