Hello Expert is there an easy way to print the dataGrid when the user hits print on a Windows From  and only the columns that are visible not all the ones that are hidden?

did you still want to print all of the rows? When you use a dataGrid and limit the number of columns to display it creates a dataview. You would then use that dataview to print only the data that is shown.

You could also use Crystal Reports to make the data layout look better for printing.

this Is an example of my dataGrid binding
                  cs = new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
                  cs.MappingName = "PermitApprov";
                  cs.HeaderText = " Permit / Approve. Etc ";
                  cs.Width = 200;
                  cs.Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;
                  tableStyle.GridColumnStyles.Add(cs);
                  dataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(tableStyle);

                  cs = new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
                  cs.MappingName = "UserID";
                  cs.HeaderText = " User ID";
                  cs.Width = 0;
                  cs.Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;
                  //Sets the Default Value of userID
                  aDataSet.Tables["tbl_ProjectLogDrawingsInOut"].Columns["UserID"].DefaultValue = 0;
                  tableStyle.GridColumnStyles.Add(cs);
                  dataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(tableStyle);
