Hi experts,

I have a VC++ app with a MS datagrid 6.0 control.

How can I print the contents of the grid easily?

Please insert code samples. (And don't tell me to look at codeguru)


Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I can't find an easy way.  I need to implement that same function in one of my projects, but it's low priority right now.

I found this:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q96/9/41.asp

....which is basically "check each cell and print its text" and it uses the VB Print object, anyway.  This in not a bad way to go -- and it's probably what I'll end up with because I don't need a lot of flexibiliyt (colors, fonts, pagination, etc) -- since you have total control, but it's not a canned answer by any means.

Another method is shown at:

http://www.deja.com/usenet/

if you search for

MSFlexGrid and print

That one uses the idea of resizing the control so all its cells are "visible" then asking the control to paint itself, passing it your own HDC.  You can scale the result and print it.

* How big is your grid?

* Is it a dlgbox control or are you putting it in a View?

* If Ms Word or Excel is known to be available (ie, corporate setting), you could explore the idea of passing the data into one of these objects, since they both support IPrint.

Hi Dan,

Sorry to keep you waiting. I was on a holiday, isn't that terrible!
Anyway, I think I'll use Excel automation and let Excel do the dirty work for me. The HDC-stuff also looks nice, but I think my grid contains to much data to do that. I'll keep it in mind for future projects though.
Anyway, which solution will you be using for your project?

Thanks very much,
Melissa

Thanks!
I've settled on the simple "examine and print each cell" .  I just use a fixed-width font and use spacing to line up the cells.  Simple is often best.
