 begin
  Printer.BeginDoc;
  Printer.Orientation:= poLandscape;
  Grid.PaintTo(Printer.Handle, 10, 10);
  Printer.EndDoc;
 end;

instead of
Grid.PaintTo(Printer.Handle, 10, 10);

use
Grid.PaintTo(Printer.Canvas.Handle, 10, 10);
 
just a guess

What you would have to do is modify the printers canvas with the Windows API: SetMapMode, SetViewportExtEx, SetViewportOrgEx, SetWindowExtEx, SetWindowOrgEx. Alternately you could PaintTo a bitmap first and then print that.

Cheers,

Alan

i agree with you kretzschmar,
i used to use functions recommended by alanwhincup to print a grid, but now saw that it was other thread to do so, however, doing the same with some extension.
at first thought your answer is too general.

of course your right was to post an objection and thank you for that.
the recommendation will be changed of course.
