How to: Specify Print Settings

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E4655.

This example demonstrates how to set print options to create the required printout.

Use the WorksheetView properties to set general page options. The active view for a worksheet is accessible using the Worksheet.ActiveView property. Worksheet View enables you to set orientation, margins and paper size settings, among others. View settings are used when a worksheet is being printed.

Worksheet printing options is a set of more print-specific options returned by the Worksheet.PrintOptions property.

To scale the content to fit in pages, set the WorksheetPrintOptions.FitToPage property to true and specify the desired number of pages by width (WorksheetPrintOptions.FitToWidth property) or by height (the WorksheetPrintOptions.FitToHeight property). You can scale the content arbitrarily by specifying the scale percentage using the WorksheetPrintOptions.Scale property, the WorksheetPrintOptions.FitToPage property is false in this case.

Other options include printing gridlines (the WorksheetPrintOptions.PrintGridlines property), printing in color or black-and-white (the WorksheetPrintOptions.BlackAndWhite property), and more.

Note

The WorksheetPrintOptions.Draft, WorksheetPrintOptions.BlackAndWhite, WorksheetPrintOptions.NumberOfCopies and WorksheetPrintOptions.CommentsPrintMode options are not supported when printing a document from the SpreadsheetControl. However, they are saved to a file, so you can use Microsoft® Excel® or another spreadsheet application to load and print a document.
