    I wonder if a single exported pdf file have its maximum length? I have been troubleshooting an issue of exporting a list of html charts to pdf. It turned out that if I exported too many charts ( > 30 charts) to a single pdf file, I would failed to generate the output (blank pdf); If I reduced the number of charts to export, I could export all charts to a single pdf file.

    That's why I think that an exported pdf file might have its maximum default length. If so, how could we deal with exporting a longer pages?

    If you have a large number of HtmlCharts you can export each one to a separate page within the same PDF document. This RadCleintExportManager feature is demonstrated in the PDF Multi Page Export demo. To achieve the same in your scenario you could set a CssClass, for example "pageBreak", to all HtmlCharts:
    <telerik:RadHtmlChart runat="server" ID="RadHtmlChart1" CssClass="pageBreak" Width="800px" Height="500px">

    or wrap every chart in a div element with class "pageBreak". Set the properties in the RadClientExportManager's PdfSettings tag, passing the above-mentioned class to the PageBreakSelector property. The page will break before every exported element matching that selector.
