Print Appearances

By default, when a control is printed, it uses the same appearances as when it is displayed on screen (these appearance settings can be customized using the Appearance property). Each DevExpress .NET control that supports printing, provides the print appearances that can be used to paint its visual elements (data cells, headers, etc.) only when it is printed. These appearances can be accessed via the AppearancePrint property.

To use the print appearances when the control is printed instead of the display appearances, set the UsePrintAppearance property to true.

Printing appearances can also be customized via the Print Appearances Page of the control's Designer.
