    Hi Jose Antonio,

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    You need to set the CellBackColorCellFont, CellPadding, etc. properties of GridPrintStyle. Please take a look at the following code sample: 
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                GridPrintStyle style = new GridPrintStyle();
                style.FitWidthMode = PrintFitWidthMode.FitPageWidth;
                style.PrintAllPages = true;
                style.PrintGrouping = true;
                style.PrintHeaderOnEachPage = true;
                style.PrintSummaries = true;
                style.CellBackColor = Color.Aquamarine;
                style.CellFont = new Font("Arial", 13, FontStyle.Regular);
                style.CellPadding = new Padding(0, 0, 10, 0);
                style.GroupRowBackColor = Color.HotPink;
                style.GroupRowFont = new Font("Arial", 13, FontStyle.Italic);
                style.HeaderCellBackColor = Color.GreenYellow;
                style.HeaderCellFont = new Font("Arial", 12, FontStyle.Bold);
                style.SummaryCellBackColor = Color.DarkSeaGreen;
                style.SummaryCellFont = new Font("Arial", 12, FontStyle.Bold);
                this.radGridView1.PrintStyle = style;

    Please refer to our help articles GridPrintStyle and Events and Customization which demonstrate how you can customize print style of RadGridView.

    I've also attached a sample demo application. 

    Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Is it possible to access print setting form via code ? I want to modify some items on that form like it's font and right to left option but I do not know how to do that. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hello Aref,

    To introduce modifications to the dialog itself, you have to inherit from GridViewPrintSettingsDialog and in the inheritor to introduce the desired modifications. Then, create a factory which implements the IPrintSettingsDialogFactory interface and pass your dialog instance in the CreateDialog method. Finally, set an instance of your factory to the PrintSettingsDialogFactory property of RadGridView. Here is a sample:
    class MyPrintSettingsDiagloFactory : IPrintSettingsDialogFactory
        public Form CreateDialog(RadPrintDocument document)
            return new MyGridViewPrintSettingsDialog(document);
    class MyGridViewPrintSettingsDialog : GridViewPrintSettingsDialog
        public MyGridViewPrintSettingsDialog(RadPrintDocument document)
            : base(document)
        protected override void LoadSettings()
            this.RightToLeft = System.Windows.Forms.RightToLeft.Yes;

    radGridView1.PrintSettingsDialogFactory = new MyPrintSettingsDiagloFactory();

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
