I''m using PerformanceGrid. Showing Print Preview and Printing this print reveales this problem shown in the attached picture. Basically a smaller grid draws in the left top corner and grid''s empty table draws on the entire page. Is there any remedy to this? Thanks

Do you have the UseGDI set true? If so, turn it off to see if that takes care of this problem. If so, then in the derived grid you can conditionally ignore the UseGDI in OnDrawCellDisplayText. This way GDI would be used when the display is the screen and GDI+ would be used for printing.
protected override void OnDrawCellDisplayText(GridDrawCellDisplayTextEventArgs e)
	base.OnDrawCellDisplayText (e);
		if (!UseGDI || e.Cancel || PrintingMode)

	e.Cancel = GridGdiPaint.Instance.DrawText(e.Graphics, e.DisplayText, e.TextRectangle, e.Style);

Definitely fixes the main problem. Thanks! The minor problem is some cells get clipped with ... On the screen the cell contents don''t get clipped. Any suggestions? Thanks

You can probably turn off the .... through a style setting. grid.TableStyle.Trimming = StringTrimming.None; But this may clip some of the text (or it may not). If it does, you could try making the column 1 or 2 pixels wider. Or, you could turn off UseGDI and then call grid.ColWidths.ResizeToFit, and then turn UseGDI back on to see if this would avoid the problem.

I do not think I can use FitToSize on my virtual grid. I think I need to build my own print document. It''ll allow me to take a snapshot of the grid data and control the sizes of the columns & print font. Do you guys have any sample that would implement these requirements; creates a print document for the grid but uses custom painting of the data? Thanks

In the grid KB there is a category name Quick Start-Printing. It has several samples on doing some customized printing. Here is one link, some of the others may also be helpful. http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/grid/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=63

using the same Performance grid sample, Im having a strange problem where the values on the grid disappear when the Print dialog box shows up. Not all the values but only the ones overlapping the print dialog. Print dialog works like an eraser :) Any clues on fixing this problem ? Thanks in advance, Sunny
