// ...

// Create printing components.
PrintingSystem printingSystem1 = new PrintingSystem();
PrintableComponentLink printableComponentLink1 = new PrintableComponentLink();
// ...

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // Add the link to the printing system's collection of links.
    printingSystem1.Links.AddRange(new object[] { printableComponentLink1 });

    // Assign a control to be printed by this link.
    printableComponentLink1.Component = gridControl1;

    // Assign the printing system to the document viewer.
    documentViewer1.PrintingSystem = printingSystem1;
}
