Additional information When filterPageSortMode=server:
When filterPageSortMode=server, print/export works a little differently when you select “all pages” or “selected pages”. In this case, you need to wire up the PrintExportDataRequest event
//This event is only fired when the user requests to print data that is currently
//not loaded in the grid. It is only applicable when filterPageSortMode is set to
//'server', because in this mode, the grid only requests the current page of data
//from the server.
//For example, if the user asks to print pages 1-4 of a 10
//page grid, and we're currently on page #4, on the client, we only have the records
//from page #4. So we have to get the records from pages 1-4 from the server.
//when this data comes back, we just set the grids.printExportData property, and the
//print/export mechanism continues as usual.
private function onPrintExportDataRequest(event:PrintExportDataRequestEvent):void
//here we build our custom filter object and send it to the server
//Function to call when server call returns.
private function onPrintExportDataResponse(event:ResultEvent):void
//This response came back as a result of a print request. so set
// the print export data on the grid and have the print/export
//mechanism continue on its way

This code demonstrates how to handle the printExportDataRequest event, and is heavily commented to explain what is going on.
