Column Width on Printing

I''m printing a databound grid. The column headings are long and the printed page puts the column headings into 2 lines but not fully printing it. - How can I make the column headings wider on the printout? Column headings look ok on the form because they''re being automatically adjusted depending on data length. Here''s the code that I''m using: Dim pd As New GridPrintDocument(myDatagrid) Dim dlg As New PrintDialog Dim result As DialogResult dlg.Document = pd dlg.AllowSelection = True dlg.AllowSomePages = True result = dlg.ShowDialog If result = DialogResult.OK Then pd.Print() End If Please provide an example in VB .Net. Thanks.

Normally, what you see on the form is the same as the print output. Here is a sample with a long title in one header cell that seems to print ok for me. What are you doing differently? ForumPrint_6897.zip

On loading the grid, I have the following code to size the columns: myDatagrid.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Table, GridResizeToFitOptions.IncludeHeaders)

I added the ResizeToFit call at the bottom of the FormLoad in the sample attached above and did not see any difference. Can you see the problem in the attached sample?

The sample doesn''t compile on my pc. It''s complaining about these two lines: Me.GridDataBoundGrid1.OptimizeInsertRemoveCells = True Me.GridDataBoundGrid1.UseListChangedEvent = True

The samples were done with the latest library code, If you are using an earlier library, you can just comment out those two lines that are giving the syntax error.
