In Silverlight 4 you can use PrintDocument to print easily any UIElement:

   var doc = new PrintDocument();
   doc.DocumentName = YourDocumentName;

   doc.PrintPage += (s, e) =>
   {
        e.PageVisual = YouUIElement;
   };
   doc.Print();


and I’ve made an extension method that can be used to print any UIElement on multiple pages:

public static void Print(this UIElement source, string documentName)
{
    var doc = new PrintDocument();
    doc.DocumentName = documentName;

    var offsetY = 0d;
    var totalHeight = 0d;

    var canvas = new Canvas();
    canvas.Children.Add(source);

    doc.PrintPage += (s, e) =>
    {
        e.PageVisual = canvas;

        if (totalHeight == 0)
        {
            totalHeight = source.DesiredSize.Height;
        }

        Canvas.SetTop(source, -offsetY);

        offsetY += e.PrintableArea.Height;

        e.HasMorePages = offsetY <= totalHeight;
    };

    doc.Print();
}

You can download the attached application (Visual Studio 2010) to check how easily you can print RadGridView for Silverlight on multiple pages.

Enjoy!
