This is demonstrated in the below sample code where the Print method of the datagrid component is invoked on button click using the datagrid reference,

        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.EmployeeID) TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" HeaderText="Employee ID" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(EmployeeData.FirstName) HeaderText="First Name" ShowInColumnChooser="false" Width="130"></GridColumn>

    private SfGrid<EmployeeData> DefaultGrid;

    public List<EmployeeData> Employees { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
        Employees = Enumerable.Range(1, 9).Select(x => new EmployeeData()
            EmployeeID = x,
            FirstName = (new string[] { "Nancy", "Andrew", "Janet", "Margaret", "Steven" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            LastName = (new string[] { "Davolio", "Fuller", "Leverling", "Peacock", "Buchanan" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            Title = (new string[] { "Sales Representative", "Vice President, Sales", "Sales Manager",
                                    "Inside Sales Coordinator" })[new Random().Next(4)],
            HireDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),

    public async Task Print()
        await this.DefaultGrid.Print();

    public class EmployeeData
        public int? EmployeeID { get; set; }
        public string FirstName { get; set; }
        public string LastName { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public DateTime? HireDate { get; set; }

Similarly all the public methods of the DataGrid can be invoked. The available public methods can be found in this link.
