when I have in the previewArea of CExtReportGrid long long text, the text wrap to new lines in print preview.

How to make the previewArea size over all columns?

and how to see on printer the same thing I have in my grid?

You can use multi-line text grid cells to see multi line output in the print preview window and on printed documents. But we agree with you, we should add an optional text wrapping feature for printout measurement and generation into all the text based grid cells.

Could you tell us what you mean by : How to make the previewArea size over all columns?. The printing/previewing output is generated differently than the image of the grid window surface. Of course, each grid cell paints itself using the same methods in both cases. But loops which enumerate and draw grid cells when painting grid window and printing are different because these tasks are different. For instance, the printing task requires splitting data into pages. The grid window painting task uses different background painting for header cells using currently installed paint manager, grid line painting, empty area lines painting, hover/pressed effect painting and other.
