Property Value

Type Description

An IPrintable object that is the control used for exporting data from a List Editor.


The ExportController uses the XtraPrintingLibrary to perform export operations under a List Editor’s control. This library exposes types that export data from the controls that implement the IPrintable interface. So, the ExportController exports data only from the List Editors that embed a control that implements the IPrintable interface. When handling the ExportController.CustomExport event, use the Printable parameter to access the printable control of the ExportController.Exportable List Editor.

Use the printable control returned by this property to set export options. The following table details how to access the export options of the printable controls used by the built-in List Editors:
