I tested the behavior you described and I understand what you mean. I was able to reproduce. However, it is not possible to implement the equivalent for the reporting. We do not offer the possibility to customize the painting in the Reporting Class.
On the other hand, if you use the Print/PrintPreview methods of the GridControl (GridControl.Print/PrintPreview), the custom PaintForeground (of the CustomTextRow) will be painted.
