Subject Re: [Discussion] Printing from Flex

While not a GREAT component, we do have the PrintDataGrid, which actually
handles the last two items you requested.  Multi-page printing is handled
by queuing multiple pages into the print queue.

The options to set the DPI, page size, etc. is pretty limited, but it does
exist...

I have a blog post on it from 2006, but it is still accurate for the most
part :  http://quetwo.com/2006/10/01/printing-in-flex-part-1/
