How to apply Alternating Row style while printing SfDataGrid?

Platform: UWP |
Control: SfDataGrid |
.NET Framework: 4.5
Tags: printing

SfDataGrid allows you to customize the DataGrid while printing, with the help of custom print manager that is derived class from GridPrintManager of SfDataGrid. Using custom print manager you can customize the row style, row height, column width, header text, etc. Also you can apply alternating row style by overriding the GetPrintGridCell method in the CustomPrintManager class and set the background to PrintGridCell.

The following code example explains you how to create Custom Print Manager Class and override GetPrintGridCell method to apply the alternating row style.


internal class CustomPrintManager : GridPrintManager
private SfDataGrid dataGrid;
public CustomPrintManager(SfDataGrid grid)
: base(grid)
dataGrid = grid;
// Invokes to Get PrintGridCell for the corresponding record and mapping name.
public override ContentControl GetPrintGridCell(object record, string mappingName)
var index = dataGrid.View.Records.IndexOfRecord(record);
//set the background of the PrintGridCell
if (index%2 == 0)
return new PrintGridCell() {Background = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Bisque)};
return base.GetPrintGridCell(record, mappingName);

You can set the above customized print manager to SfDataGrid.PrintSettings.PrintManagerBase property as illustrated in the following code example.


//set Custom Print Manager as PrintManagerBase
dataGrid.PrintSettings.PrintManagerBase = new CustomPrintManager(dataGrid);

The following screenshot displays the print preview of SfDataGrid with Alternating Row Style.
