    if I print cells with HTMLRendering the text aligns to the top left of the cell and something equivalent to padding 0;0;0;0 is used. How do you fix that?


    private void BestFitRadGridView_PrintCellFormatting(object sender, PrintCellFormattingEventArgs e)
               e.PrintCell.Font = new Font(e.PrintCell.Font.FontFamily, 7F);
               e.PrintCell.EnableHtmlTextRendering = !e.Column.DisableHTMLRendering;
               e.PrintCell.TextPadding = new Padding(5);

    If i set EnableHtmlTextRendering = false the padding (set in the printstyle or on cell-level) is used as expected.



    Kind regards,

    Hi Andreas,

    Thank you for writing.

    The observed behavior is an issue withing the printing engine of the grid. That is why I have logged it in our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item. I have also updated your Telerik Points.

    The item is already in development and a permanent fix will be available with our next official release.

    For the time being please use the workaround solution in the attached project. Basically, you would need to create custom renderer and print cells and then adjust the painting rectangle of the cell depending on the text padding.

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
