I want to print custom header and footer for my printouts. So, I derived
ReportPrintDocument from the GridPrintDocument base class. I am having
trouble controlling margins. It looks like the GridPrintDocument is
calculating the number of rows that be fit into a page in the OnBeginPrint()
In OnBeginPrint(), I am shrinking the margins, so that my header+footer
can be printed. In OnPrintPage(), I am painting my header/footer and
letting the grid paint in the middle. Here is where I am having a problem.
I want to print the header only on first page. My first page is coming ok.
But from page #2, for some reason the grid is not going till the bottom.
1. Please run the attached sample.
2. Click set data button.
3. Click printpreview. Goto page #2. Notice that another 5 to 10 rows
can be added at the bottom.
Am I doing something wrong?
Is there an easier way to print my custom header/footer?

I don't think there is a simple way around this problem currently. The actual grid rows/columns that will appear on any given printed page is currently being set in the baseclass OnBeginPrint method, and there is no public or protected access to the internal members that hold this information.
We do intend to enhance printing support in our 2.0 release, but I will discuss this with Stefan to see if we can expose either an event or something that will give you the access you need before that release.
I'll post here after we have discussed it.
