I have a radgrid with about 18 columns,  I've tried the basic code on this site that rips out all the html data and simply prints it, but it doesn't work well as in portrait, columns are cut off, and landscape fares only slightly better.

What would be the more efficient way to print out the radgrid (Ideally so it automatically formats the printout to fit all the data without cutting data out).?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hello,

Set AllowPaging="false" and then use the approach demonstrated in this code-library

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Allowpaging = false just shows all the rows instead of 100,  I don't need to print out all the rows, I'm fine with printing 100 at a time.  

I used the approach demonstrated in the code library (I believe I used the printradgrid updated) however that does not format the data so it fits in the page,  Columns are still being cut out because the table contains a lot of columns.

I want it so it's formatted and can be printed as portrait without the columns being cut out (the data automatically shrinking to fit everything on the page),  is this possible?

Hi,

To fit 18 columns on the page you can try one of the following options:
  • switch the orientation to landscape
  • reduce the font size
  • use narrower fonts
  • decrease the page margins
  • increase the page size
  • PDF export

Some of these suggestions are also suitable when printing RadGrid.

Kind regards,

I thought there was a much easier way to print it,  similar to excel where you can simply  tell it to format it to fit all the columns.  Looking around the web it seemed like in the old version, radgridviewer or something of that sort was used, but for whatever reason was dropped?

Hi,

RadGrid control for ASP.NET AJAX did not have radgridviewer or something like that in older version.  Can you please make sure that are not looking at RadGridView control for WPF or some other telerik control?

Hmmm, I guess that's possibly what I was looking at if I had to take a guess (I can't for the life of me find it).  I'm guessing there is nothing that would enable some type of good formatting currently for printing a radgrid ajax?
