Hi,

Most printing suites are about reports, so you should either transfer the grids' content to a
report or build yourself a component that does what you ask.

I don't have too much time now, but it should look like this:

Type

    TPrintComponent = class( TComponent )
    published
       
         property Source : TComponent;
         property PreviewPane : TPaintBox;
   end;


Then you'd use the Windows APIs to get the DC of the component you want and then
would draw it on the PreviewPane and then print it out.

That's basically how you'll make it.

HTH,

Andrew
