Hello

Please can you advise me how you add extra information to a pdf file and an excel file when you export a grid.

I have seen that i can add some custom information in the CommandItemTemplate but I cannot find any real information about how i populate the controls etc that I put in the template.

The best that i have been able to see is something like this in the page pre render event

 Protected Sub Page_PreRender(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreRender  
        Dim l As Label = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.CommandItem)(0).FindControl("lblSomeLabel")  
        l.Text = "some text" 
    End Sub 

However I do not know if this is the best/efficient way of doing this.

Thanks

Hello Andieje,

Another possible way to add custom text in the CommandItem is to use the ItemCreated event:
Protected Sub RadGrid1_ItemCreated(sender As Object, e As GridItemEventArgs) 
    If TypeOf e.Item Is GridCommandItem Then 
        'e.Item.Cells(0).Text = "my text" .... 
    End If 
End Sub
