I''m executing the following code for a Print Preview of a GDBG :
GridPrintDocument gpdPrintGrid = new
PrintPreviewDialog dlg = new PrintPreviewDialog() ;
dlg.Document = gpdPrintGrid;
The dialog is displayed but the Zoom button doesn''t seem to work. Nothing happens when clicking the button and the dropdown doesn''t display. Right now the test grid only generates one page. Am I missing something?

This sample works OK for me. Does it work OK for you? If not what version of our grid are you using?

Every sample I''ve run works for me - except for my project! It''s a GDBG in a navigation control. I''ve included an image of what it looks like in the Print Preview dialog.
I don''t know what other clues to give.
- I''m handling PrepareViewStyleInfo
- The last four columns in the second row are PushButtons

Couple of more details ...
- The GDBG is contained in a GridRecordNavigationControl that is on a TabControlAdv control.
- The TabControlAdv control is on an MDI child form that is using Essential Tools XPMenus.

I forgot - my version is 184.108.40.206 using VS Studio 2003.
Are there any events that I might be handling that would affect the Zoom dropdown?

The PrintPreview support is part of the standard .NET Framework class so I am not sure what grid events would effect this.
I tried to do a MDI project with a TabControlAdv and a GridDataBoundGrid on the second tab. The print preview seems to work ok in this sample.
If you can attach a sample showing the problem, maybe we can spot something here.

I can''t seem to produce a sample that has the problem - except for my full-blown project. I''ve set breakpoints and have examined PrintPreviewDialog. There is a DropDownMenu and it does have items in it (9 to be exact), but it''s as if the ButtonDropDown event isn''t even wired. I''ve compared the PrintPreviewDialogs between my project and a working sample and I see no differences.
I give up unless you have any other suggestions!

The mystery deepens - I don''t know whether this is a grid or XPMenus issue. I''ve been running the code I had listed above from a context menu (XPMenus.PopupMenu). This causes the Zoom button to be inactive. I''ve now incorporated this same button into a child menu that gets merged into a parent (XPMenus) and the Zoom button works fine.
This is the same BarItem being hooked into both a menu & popup structure and, therefore, the same Click event code is being executed.

For your popup menu, try setting PopupMenu.SynchronousPopup = false to see if that affects this problem.
LSLori S. PearsallJune 16, 2004 07:51 AM
Unfortunately, the Tools.XPMenus.PopupMenu doesn''t have that property.

I''m mistaken - SynchronousPopup isn''t in the Class Reference but it is present on the popup. And ... it works!! Great catch!
