Add table header on each printed page

How to include a header on each page when printing a DataGrid - The Code Project - .NET

There is a simple solution for printing tables with repeating headers on each printed page. It involves CSS styling of the THEAD section of a table. Unfortunately, neither DataGrids nor GridViews render the THEAD tag. Somehow, Microsoft seems hellbent against it. So either create a control that renders THEAD, then add "display:table-header-group;" to the THEAD style, or use this Javascript function:



function AddTHEAD(tableName)
{
var table = document.getElementById(tableName);
if(table != null)
{
var head = document.createElement("THEAD");
head.style.display = "table-header-group";
head.appendChild(table.rows[0]);
table.insertBefore(head, table.childNodes[0]);
}
}
