    In This Topic

    You can print a spreadsheet, or parts of a spreadsheet, and use a variety of options to customize printing.

    Spread offers you several ways to handle the printing and provides some default handling if you want to keep it simple. You can print various parts of the sheet, you can set options for the appearance of what is printed, you can preview the printing, you can apply printer's setting to print preview, you can show the print preview dialog like Excel, you can print in duplex mode (print on both sides of the paper), you can print more than one page in a sheet of paper and you can provide the printing operation to the end user.

    Much of the printing work uses the PrintSheet method in the FpSpread class. Many of the options available for customizing the printing are in the PrintInfo class. For each sheet in Spread you assign a PrintInfo object. More information on the tasks involved with the management of printing are given in these topics:

    You can also handle printing within the Spread Designer. For more information on printing and previewing in Spread Designer, refer to Printing a Sheet from Spread Designer.

    Sheets are printed on the current default printer in your Windows environment unless you specify otherwise. You can print sheets on any Windows-supported printer.
