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

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